Coffee Smith is located in Duren Tiga, Mampang, South Jakarta, not really common for a coffee shop 🙂 . Read about this place on Instagram @tempatngopiasik , it shares many cool places to enjoy coffee.
That day was a long day, at first we planned to visit Caribou Coffee at Senopati then we bumped into this freaky traffic, thought we’re successfully reached the place, there wasn’t enough parking lot available. We cancelled this coffee experience and went home until i remembered this place. It’s kinda small space on this shop houses area at Duren Tiga. Just drive slowly or you’ll miss it he..he..
Entering the place, on your left, you’ll see this huge coffee roasting machine welcoming you. Yes, they roast their own bean. Then arriving at the coffee bar, it was a warmth-lighted room with this industrial kind of interior and the smell was so great! There were some chairs available at the ground floor, but i think 2nd floor giving more comfortable atmosphere that people prefer to go up stair.
After some explanations from the barista, we decided to try manual brewed coffee and the beans was Garut Bean and Aceh Gayo Bean. They brewed and served them in this kind of tube and an empty glass. You could pour lot or less coffee into your white cup. I did it less, so that i could enjoy the hot coffee faster. In my opinion, the Garut coffee gave a little bit sweet and smoother taste than the Aceh Gayo one, which was heavier, slightly bitter. But they tasted good. I Like it!
Overall, this place is comfortable, the coffee is great, the staffs are kind. Worth to try 🙂
