House of Archipelago’s Coffe, that’s what written on the front wall of that building. The text formed from letter blocks and the letter’s colored by silver. However the exterior design doesn’t look convincing, because it more look like a military camp that has a rigid box shape, with green military paint.

Yes, it can’t be more formal than this.

It seemed that this Coffee House just opened along 3 months and, it’s going to has a launching on June. But, as we stepped in, the atmosphere paid for our disappointment of the outside design. The indoor design is impressive!

 

The jar..

The jar..

 

 

 

The tables and the blak-brown wooden seats. It’s really looked like a coffee shop. As well as the arrangement of the jars that filled by coffee beans. All the jars put on black wooden buffet. On each tables there is a jar of coffee beans from different regions. And we, as a visitors can taste it!

Inside..

In other corner of the room, there is a mural of coffee beans tree. And several long sofa with matching color. There are canopies at the side balcony terrace. The canopies has a big umbrella with round table and thin chairs.

My parent talked with one of Coffee House’s Barista. I looked at his face and, I think his face is very familiar. Haha, it didn’t take long time to remember Ridwan Kamil, the mayor of Bandung City. Yes, his face looks like Ridwan Kamil. One of the best mayor in the world you know?

 

The Bucket!

The Bucket!

In one of the side of room, there are many big bucket, as big as ancient wells bucket. Look at the gothic design! I feel like It throwing me back to an age when Norwegian peoples still clothing from animal fur, haha, the barbarians. In each bucket filled of coffee beans, and each bucket has a nameplate. From Gayo-Aceh coffee beans, to Papua-Blue Baliem. On the wall, as the bucket’s background there is a big atlas of Indonesian Archipelagos.

And one thing for sure, here what they sale is the best Arabica coffee from all over Indonesia. Not Robusta coffee that we are used to consuming and buy it at low price from grocery shop near our house.

Beside the row of buckets, there.. is a place where the baristas take an action.

With complete grinder machine. From grinder, presser, steam tool to make foam. all the advanced tools that assure. Actually we really want to taste the coffee that still in promotion price. There are brewed coffee and Americano. And the price are only 7.500 rupiahs. Ya, so pity that we were in hurry to attend a wedding party of my Junior High School teacher.

The clock showed 11 a.m. and I didn’t take a bath yet. And make up my face! Oh no..

Finally, my mom bought Bali Kintamani coffee powder weighing 250 grams and has the price is 50,000.

 “This Bali Kintamani coffee has a acidic and sour taste like orange fruit. Yes! Orange Bali! the taste of the coffee produced is highly dependent on coffee beans and coffee beans are highly affected by the ground where it growed. In Bali, as we know, the orange trees are planted which then famous with typical acidity citric course-effect on coffee plants that planted around it. If the Gayo-Aceh coffee has little bit taste like dust because of the dusty ground, So Bali somewhat acidic because the soil also produces oranges “
