The Caffeine Dispensary (Kelapa Gading, Jakarta)

The Caffeine Dispensary

The Caffeine Dispensary is a homey coffee shop located in Kelapa Gading area which is managed by three young people (Ajie Permana, Edward Sanrio and Andri Saputra) who have tons of passion for coffee. Last Sunday, I was invited by The Caffeine Dispensary to attend the coffee cupping session which is held by them. It was not really hard to find the coffee shop, it was located right beside the well-known Bakmi Siantar Ko Fei.

The place itself is not really big but it was spacious and nice. The interior was simple and neatly decorated which gives off homey and cozy ambiance. You might also spot coffee roasting machine inside and coffee bean sack(s) inside the cafe. It's not for decoration purpose, but they are real thing s because they produce their own coffee and they even supply the coffee for other coffee shop(s)!

The coffee cupping session is separated into two main section, the first one is where we learn about the origins, production, and types of coffee. The second section is where we tried to assess the coffee from several aspects such as flavor, acidity, fragrance, aroma, balance, etc. Although it was my first time in joining coffee cupping session, the whole session was so fun and I've got a lot of new knowledge about coffee from them!

I had the chance to try 6 different coffee(s) originated from Ethiopia, Brazil, El Salvador, Bali, Aceh and Toraja. All of them had their own fragrance, aroma and flavor. It was really intriguing and I've gotta say that those coffee(s) are unique in their own way. After the coffee cupping session, I also tried several snacks and light bites served by The Caffeine Dispensary. Let's get started with the food!

Smoked Beef & Cheese Croissant (IDR 55k)

The Smoked Beef & Cheese Croissant is buttered croissant served along with veggies, sliced tomato, cheese and smoked beef. It tasted super duper delicious as the croissant had a nice texture and had perfect amount of butter and smoked beef!

Cheese Brownie and Lemon Bread

The Cheese Brownie tasted super delicious and it had a good combination of sweet and salty flavor while the Lemon Bread tasted pretty decent as it was sweet and sour at the same time. I bet this will be perfect snacks to accompany your coffee!

Iced Cocoa (IDR 45k)

The Iced Cocoa was topped with cold and chewy marshmallow, it tasted pretty chocolaty and this one totally suit my liking. It was not sweet at all and tasted a little bit bitter as it had strong flavor of chocolate. If you love dark chocolate, I reckon you will love this drink as well!

Coffee

In conclusion, I had a super great time during the coffee cupping session at The Caffeine Dispensary! The whole session was wonderful, the coffee tasted great and their food tasted delicious. To be honest, it was my first time in joining a coffee cupping session and I've gotta admit that I didn't have a lot of knowledge about coffee before, but I do have decent knowledge about coffee now! Thanks to Ajie, Rio and Andri for the warm hospitality and I wish best of luck for The Caffeine Dispensary

Oh, and I've gotta tell you a sneak peak because they are planning to open the coffee cupping session for public! (yay!) So, stay tune and I hope you won't miss it!
