It was a Saturday night when i remembered about this new coffee shop. I read the article on anakjajan.com and got very interested in visiting Ruang Seduh at Kemang ( “ruang” means room/space and “seduh” means brew ) since it offered a new experience in enjoying a cup of coffee. Unlike any coffee shop i’d visited, i could learn how difficult the brewing process of a glass of coffee is (oh, yeah, i’ve never imagine that it’d be that complicated XD).
At first, i was getting confused because there’s no waiter welcoming us. It was just a small space across Ganara Art Space, almost invisible ha ha…. If only i didn’t turn right from entrance i’was just gonna miss it.. After asking the waiter, we knew that what we needed to do was go straight to the cashier to order. There were 4 kinds of coffee bean, i chose Panama Fruit bean. Then i needed to wait for my turn to brew. That’s if you choose Manual Brewed Coffee, yet for espresso based coffee, the staff would make it for you 🙂
It was such a great experience to know there were a lot of tools and steps that you need just to enjoy a small cup of coffee. First, the Barista taught me to grind my coffee beans. There was an indicator to show the fineness of the coffee powder. For Panama Bean it was 8. It smelled very good right after being grinded. They had the formula for every bean kind to ensure the coffee tasted its best.
Then…. it’s brewing time!!! The coffee powder was put into a filter cup (made in Germany, forgot the brand ha ha..). Then a 50grams of boiled water was being poured in. After 30s I poured another 130 grams water then let it drop into the cup under the filter. it spent about 2,5 minutes before the coffee was ready to be sip.
i was surprised to taste my coffee. Although there was no sugar added into the coffee, it wasn’t tasted bitter. It was a bit sour but refreshing. Yet, what made me so happy was, i made it myself :*.
Also, like i said before, across this place there was Ganara Art Space. What most interesting was, they have art classes (see, it’s -es, they have a lot!). I think i’m going to try a class or more sometime 🙂
Ruang Seduh at Kemang. Worth to try !
