Tanamera Coffee Roastery

When I was a kid, my closest Indonesian aunt used to live with us loves coffee so much. I started from tasting one table spoon of her coffee every now and then till I'm allowed to drink my own cup of coffee. Tanamera is one of the decent coffee shop in Jakarta and I have been wanting to visit it for a long time, somehow I always get distracted every time I'm in town. Finally, on my recent trip I visited Tanamera on the day same day I arrived in Jakarta.

Tanamera is located near Grand Indonesia mall, the shop it self was petite with a small outdoor and indoor seatings on the first floor and a little bit more spacious indoor seatings on the third floor. It has a dim lighting with dark wood tables and chairs. The ambience was homey but it can't get a little bit crowded at times.

Let's get right down to the coffee, they use local beans and I love it cause they support local produces and helping Indonesian economy. They are using manual brewing process called Kalita Wave. Regarding their menu, they have limited range of coffee and food selections but mainly they focus on the quality of their coffee. I ordered Single origin Cappuccino (IDR 35k) and it was made properly on the right temperature, had a bitter aftertaste but overall it was a decent cup of coffee.

My mom does not drink coffee so she opted for Red Velvet Latte (IDR 35k) which was hot chocolate with a little bit of red food colouring, it tasted just average. Red velvet latte is largely in trend in Indonesia, almost all cafe's sell them, some based on coffee, some based on something else but honestly for me it was overrated. 

I also ordered Croissant Butter Pudding which turn out to be pretty good, it was crunchy and a bit flaky but still moist. They also sell other varieties of snacks and pastries.

I ended up visiting Tanamera twice on my recent trip home. One of the highlight of my visit was the staff, they are all so friendly, funny, energise and helpful. One of their barista is my friend and I didn't know that until we coincidentally met at the shop. Overall, I love this place.
