OETARA COFFEE JAKARTA11.11.00
While most new coffee shops are lately more to the minimalist, unfinished and industrial design, Oetara is a newcomer with rich sweet, dreamy and homey vibe to it with major white and a bit of pastel (mainly tosca) chrome surrounding the interior deco. First of all, at the very moment you can't really trust the help of the freaking Google Maps and Waze as both were totally giving me the wrong direction to the coffee shops! On the map it's said to be located across the SMAK 6 Penabur where it's actually located align and beside the Yu-i restaurant, so if you're confused you better type in the word "Yu-i" instead of "Oetara Coffee".
For those who come in groups or have this huge "passion" for the social, there's a huge communal table in the center of the shop.
A mini corner souvenir shop. They sell books, magazines and coffee related products.
Expect to find common range of coffee creations such as white, black, and manual brews. Price range for coffee starts at IDR 30k-45k
Coffee Taster Sampler - Hot Cappuccino - IDR 35k
Nylon coffee beans and cold hands of the barista to curate such a warm-loving, milky and buttery coffee that was perfect for the day. Their cappuccino reminded me of the Australian style coffee where it's milky, medium-body, soft finish and algother creamy. It was indeed a good one.
Their chocolate brownie has been a top selling menu here and it was quite gooey, but I would love if they actually offer to heat the brownie as I believe it would taste much better right after.
Iced White - IDR 35k
As for the iced white, they're using Single Origin Toraja beans. I would defo root for the hot cap much better as I was hooked on that interesting buttery note it teased. The iced white was light without much body note, but with such delicate finish.
Right after that first scoop, I was aware that theirs was defo one of the best affogato creations you can find in town. The espresso and vanilla ice cream combo really gave that nice caramelly flavor and that shredded coconut sprinkle gave not only texture, but a hint of flavor as well! Altogether very nice and something that I'd be more than happy to recommend.
A serious one in the North, I have good hopes for them! Long live the love for coffee and best of luck!
