When traveling the world the first thing that many of us desperately need is a little caffeine pick-me-up, so luckily Jakarta coffee shops are among the very best in the world.
We’ve focused on the third wave of coffee entrepreneurs who are creating magical coffee experiences in the city. All you have to do is start working your way through the list, one tasty sip at a time.
Coffee doesn’t get much better than this…
Giyanti Coffee opened its doors in 2012, starting off with only a small space hiding behind a former Beauty Clinic.
Now one of the best coffee stores in the city, with in-house “roast masters” that are hugely experienced and passionate about sourcing only the very best beans. Their iced latte on a hot Jakarta day is one of life’s great pleasures.
Not only can you get a great cuppa here, they also sell their beans online and are involved in training the next wave of baristas and selling wholesale to other coffee shops. Tanamera have a passionate customer base who insist this is the best coffee in the city.
This family run business began in 2013 and within a year their head barista received first place at the Indonesian Barista Championship and was the first Indonesian representative to compete in the World Barista Championships.
Their consistency of a quality cup stems from time-tested methods of extraction aimed at releasing the most from the coffee bean. Curious about the name? 1:15 is a well-known coffee-to-water ratio that yields an ideal cup.
They focus on local coffee here, in particular the Gayo Aceh variety. The Arabica Coffee of Aceh Gayo is considered one of the most premium coffee beans in the world.
It’s because Aceh Gayo coffee beans grow in a distinctive type soil in the highlands, thus making it almost impossible to find any other place outside its origin.
Crematology serves by far one of the best all0day breakfasts in Jakarta. Their coffee is the real star though, as they say themselves: “We source the best coffees we can find throughout the islands of vibrant Indonesia, and strive to maintain deep and mutually beneficial relationships with local farmers sharing our dedication for quality. ”
You might first discover this place thanks to its Egg Benedict dish (and it is indeed wonderful) but it’s the coffee that will have you coming back on a regular basis. Their signature blend is a medium body with a note of sweet caramel, berry, and orange. It has a long after taste with a slight of pepper aroma to it.
This started as a small outlet but because of their huge passion for coffee and the wonderful breakfast items they serve, there’s now eight truly unique and wildly popular outlets across the city.
The roastery offers training and custom blends for their stores as well as wholesale clients.”.
