A Djournal to Revisit: Djournal Coffee Grand Indonesia.

So I have a new coffee shop crush, it is Djournal Coffee from Ismaya Group. Anyway, I have reviewed this coffee shop before, one which located in Summarecon Mal Serpong 2 and incase you miss it, you can read the review HERE.

I've been anticipating about this coffee shop release in Grand Indonesia because I often go to Grand Indonesia (literally at least once every week) and everytime I pass this, I notice the construction is getting better and better, and as what I get to experience for myself last week, I think I just fell in love <3.

I love the atmosphere of this coffee shop! Maybe I was a little carried away by the rain since it was raining pretty mild and it tends to be a little cold inside and I was single (NOT RELEVANT!) aaaa..no, I'm joking. Seriously this place gets kinda cold during the night and I love cold places so I have no problem. It's just better to be in a cold place rather than a hot place.

The difference between the the outlet here and the one in SMS 2 is slightly the area, I personally think the SMS2's outlet is the bigger one, but overall I find the Grand Indonesia outlet more comfortable to stay around, it's just the perfect size, they play nice musics and seriously, I love a coffee shop that's surrounded by the smell of brewed coffee, it's just amazing and addicting. I also love the fact that this coffee shop in Grand Indonesia is more private-feeling rather than the one in SMS 2 which seems like more opened.

I got seated just beside the window with a perfect outdoor view and it was raining and I adore rain, I think it's somehow a miracle.
"There's something about the way, the street looks when it's just rained" - Taylor Swift "Fearless".

They have the cutest menu design ever. Almost the same concept of Anomali's only with a touch of their creativity.

This is the summary of what we (I came with my sister) ordered that night.
Left to right: Iced Salted Caramel, Hazelnut Nutella Cake, Iced Caramel Macchiato with whipped cream <3.

First of all, let me just tell you that THEY HAVE DROP DEAD GORGEOUS COFFEE. Slightly a bit strong in taste comparing to the brand 'x' I also do love (you know what I mean) and I think the champion for the night was the one and only Hazelnut Nutella Cake. During my visit to the SMS2's outlet, I also ordered the Nutella Cake, only different looking and taste. This one was titled with additional word of "Hazelnut" but if you ever tried the one is SMS2, it's not much different, almost the same.

Hazelnut Nutella Cake
IDR 28.000 (before tax)

I thought the texture on top of the cake surface is a chocolate powder, but it's totally a cripsy layer of something I'm not sure I can't explain, it's like a very thin crispy chocolate layer that melts in your mouth. What a genius!

Rich glimpse of delicious caramel sauce all over your caramel macchiato is such a genius one way guilty pleasure.
Iced Caramel Macchiato
IDR 39.000 (before tax)

Iced Salted Caramel
IDR 36.000

If you ask me what coffee to recommend having here, I would really recommend this over the Caramel Macchiato. I personally like this better than the CM, it's strong but not overpowering (since not everyone like very strong coffees) and this one is generally more friendly, sweeter and different :).

My date for the night, everyone says we look alike.

For those three treats, we spent around IDR 119k nett, a pretty good deal for an amazing coffee experience.

Djournal Coffee is certainly not a new coffee shop to underestimate, and they don't sell "outer look/physical appearance" you might probably fall in love with this coffee shop like me :)).

Thank you for reading! and if you have any comments about this coffee shop, do share your personal opinions and leave comments :D.

    Anyway, I love your blog. Keep posting! :D :D


  2. baru minggu lalu gue ksana! hahahaha.. tempatnya lebih gede dari Djournal SMS ya, udah gitu ada makanannya.. dan Nutella Hazelnut itu emang juara, enak banget! :D

  3. I wish I lived here!
    I'm a coffee lunatic too.. anything to go with some wood-built furniture and brewed coffee smell.. ugh.

  4. Searching for a blog review of Djournal and found this. Nice! And these are mighty food porn (which is good. Bad for my cravings, though). Thanks. I might just check it out this weekend or some time around.

    Keep in touch!

  5. the other night i went and visit their new place in citos and order hot chocolate for my breakfasting, i was like woowww with the size of the cup, its huge indeed. i obviously adore the taste of this hot chocolate, a bit chocolate bitter tasted on every sip and ends sweet.

  6. I just visited Djournal Coffee Grand Indonesia and I am so fascinated by it taste and ambience! And you are so true that this one is a lot better than the other one coffee shop (you know what brand I'm referring to). So before I went here I was googling about Djournal and I found your review blog, I ordered Iced Salted Caramel Latte and Hazelnut Nutella Cake as your preference and it was so great!!! The Iced Salted Caramel Latte is very soothing and refereshing, the price is very affordable. I also ordered their Ham and Cheese Croissant, surprisingly it also taste heavenly, probably the best ham and cheese croissant I ever tried.

    Thank you for this review, it's very helpful indeed! :)
