Since when do we need caffeine to work?
I don’t drink caffeine regularly until few years ago. God, even when I was in college I could not afford coffee. But suddenly now I NEED coffee to function. I got cranky, sleepy and unable to think before I get my caffeine.
In this post I want to share you my most favourite coffee in town.
- FLAT WHITE, GIYANTI
Though sometimes I also order its cappuccino or latte, its flat white is still my favorite. As one of the best coffee places in town, you will never fail with Giyanti. I also like their brownies, which they claim is gluten-free (not so care about the gluten-free part though).
Being a mager/lazy person that I am, I usually order the coffee through Gojek, or when I also need some carbs intake, I will visit Cali Deli, a viatnemese restaurant next to Giyanti, and have my lunch/brunch there while ordering my favorite flat white from Giyanti (yes, they can come to take your order from Cali Deli) J
- SALTED CARAMEL LATTE, DJOURNAL GRAND INDONESIA
Oh my guilty pleasure! Salted caramel latte from Djournal, Grand Indonesia is definitely one of my favorites! Introduced by a friend of mine, this drink become one of my comfort drinks that I will definitely visit when I am in a low mood (I don’t even care that I need to pass awful traffic to reach there!).
Even though I can find Djournal some where else, I think the one in Grand Indonesia has the best mix for my taste. I tried the one in Citos and it was too salty! I complained and they tried to fix it, but it just made the coffee tasted like a glass of syrup. Wayyy too sweet. I also tried the new one in WTC Sudirman, it wasn’t as terrible as the one in Citos, but not as perfect in Grand Indonesia.
- ICE LATTE, ST Ali
ST ALi is a regular meeting place of me and a friend. I firstly always ordered flat white here (which is not bad), but one day I tried its ice latte and I fell in love instantly! It is still my favorite everytime I visit the place.
- DOUBLE SHOT ICE SHAKEN ESPRESSO, STARBUCKS
Since Starbucks is the most accessible place for me, many times I stuck with starbucks when I need my caffeine. Despite everyone’s comments on how awful Starbucks’ coffees are, I actually have my own favorite in this place, i.e. their double shot ice shaken espresso (what a long name, huh). It is the only drink served in Starbucks that’s still tasted like real coffee, while the rest are just water with lots of sugar 😀
Occassionally I would also order caramel macchiato for a change, and I also like their glazed donuts too! 😀
So now you know what to give me when I get cranky or sleepy in the morning or afternoon 😀 I actually recently tried macchiato and cappuccino from Common Grounds, City Walk and I liked them both! And of course I love the coffee from 1/15 and Tanamera too. However, I didn’t include them in the above list since here I only list the coffees I regularly drink.
Till next time!
Dewi is back blogging again!
For you who didn’t know my previous blog (it was 6-7 years ago..) you may want to know what I am about.. So here we go!
I am a 30 years old who loves everything nice about this life: good food, good books and good music. I eat almost everything and dare to try anything new. I read at least 2-3 books a month. Depends on my current mood, I listen to any music from Ben Howard to Calvin Harris and Linkin Park. *Yes, I am a pretty random person :D
I also love traveling, but who doesn’t. ;) I have been to almost all countries in Europe and Asia, I have also been to Morocco, Svalbard and Peru. I love traveling solo, but a good companion sometimes can be nice too (it’s good to have some good pictures from a trip, and not only a selfie filled with my big face and a tiny part of the view :D). Next, I will be in Korea and Japan sometime this year.
I love hiking too! I will be hiking Mount Sumbing and Rinjani of Indonesia (and some other smaller mountains) in 2017! Wish me luck :)
Oh and I love to know new people! Let’s talk! I love telling stories and have long talk during a coffee. I am too a movie addict and big fans of Ewan McGregor! Ping me when any of his movies is out and you have a spare ticket to share :P
