Coffee shops have been a good business in Jogja, more and more new coffee shops can be easily found in the neighborhood. However, the competition is tough ma maaan… many of those are closed after a while.
For me, a good coffee shop comes in package of coffee, baristas, and store ambience. Foods? Nope, it doesn’t count. It’s just a complementary item, when it comes tasty then it’s a bonus poin.
I will make several stories about coffee shops that I have tried. Why coffee shops? Hmmm.. it’s simply because I love coffee.. I love it bitter yet creamy 🙂
So.. this time will be Simetri Coffee. You can easily find this place at Kotabaru, at Jalan Sabirin. It opens daily starting at 9 AM. A good place to have your morning meeting.
They have several rooms, you can use one for meeting if you need a separate space from other customers. Just ask the staffs, they are really nice and helpful.
The price is not that cheap, but it’s worth the money honey! Their coffees are around 40k, and the main course starts also from around 50k. But don’t worry, they have such a biiiiiggg portion that mostly you can always share with friends. My favorite menus are chicken wings (snacks) and traditional big breakfast. Their chicken wings are not that small common chicken wings with standatd taste. Those are big wings with crunchy skin, not fried but grilled. Sooo yummy. Traditional bigbreakfast is about breakfast so you will find scrambled eggs, sausage, sauted potato n mushrooms, ham, bread in one plate. Trust me it’s too big for braekfast.
The coffee… yes… i love the coffee here. The taste are bold, but not too strong. My favorite is coffee latte or cappuccino. so I use it to make my coffee shop list.
Simetri coffee’s cappuccino is tasty. The coffee is strong enough but they balance it with the creamy milk. The milk is not too milky and destroys the coffee. Like I said before. It’s bitter yet creamy. Perfecto.
