When driving by on the road, this place looks really awesome, but sadly, I think it looks better from the road. Once I got inside, it was pretty dirty and just not quite as special as it seemed. It’s got a bunch of pretty cool outside seating though. A lot of the newer shops in Jogja are going for the same look Uppers has but do it better I think. The main one that comes to mind is Lantai Bumi.
Not great. Inside was very hot and messy. The outdoor seating area is pretty nice, but unfortunately it’s on the main road…because of that it is pretty loud out there from all the traffic.
It’s not all bad though. The coffee was excellent. Not only was it good, but they are full of options (definitely more than most) at about average price.
Price: 25k (V60)
Brewing Methods: AeroPress, French press, siphon, V60
Single Origin? yes, about five options
Overall Rating: 2
I don’t want to go too far and say this is a bad coffee shop because it’s not. For me though, it lacks anything that stands out. Yeah it has good coffee and many options but so do most coffee shops around town. Probably best to stop by for a while during the evening/night with some friends to hangout in the outdoor seating area, but that’s not really what I look for in coffee shops (coffee late at night is not for me…).
