January 2nd, 2017. I came to this coffee roastery several times. First time I came with Hans and Aline. A long time ago. It’s a small place with cozy ambiance. I took some photos, but since I wasn’t that active at the time, I forgot to post it on my blog. Then I came after that several times with different friends. But I only took photos for flatlay. And now I heard that they expanded the place. When Hans asked me to visit the place, I agreed to join him. Giyanti Coffee Roastery.
Giyanti opened its door on *if I’m not mistaken* November 2012. And it’s been the best coffee since then. Hendrik Halianto, the name behind the magic hand, put his effort to this coffee roastery. A lot of coffee lovers recommended this place to be the best. Well, maybe not the perfect one, but one of the best coffee places. And I always recommended Giyanti to all of coffee lovers. When they asked me, where to go for coffee, I said, “Giyanti! Best!” And when they tried the coffee there, they agreed with me. They always return.
When I stepped inside the new area at Giyanti, I fell in love all over again. It was very lovely. Such a comfortable place to hang out with friends. And I was happy to see that the place was very crowded. Ah don’t forget that Giyanti opening hours is Tuesday to Saturday on 9:30am to 5:30pm. And I think I will come back soon. I will sit on the second floor. *tag my seat* 🙂 By the way, I met Hendrik, and he still remember the first time I went there. I was impressed! Hahaha..
Ok now it’s time to order drinks and food. Actually I arrived there with Cindy first. Then we waited for Hans to come.
Ice Mocca Melt 47k
When I told them that I couldn’t drink coffee, they suggested mocca, with less coffee. They gave the *very very very very weak* notes LOL. And I loved my ice mocca melt. Tasted like coffee, but safe for my tummy. Definitely will order this one again.
Almond Butter Croissant 45k
Actually, we thought about to wait for Hans to order the pastry. But then, my sister recommended this one when I did IG live. I remember that I used to order this, so yeah, one almond butter croissant, please! And it’s still one of the best! Love the texture, love the flavour, love everything about it. Too bad I had to share it with Cindy and Hans. Next time, I won’t give a d*mn about sharing. It’s all mine!
Nice one. It’s Hans’ order. I tried a bite, and I could say it’s really good. Not weird as any other carrot cake. Well, carrot cake was never my favourite though.
Keep up the good work Giyanti. It’s very hard to maintain a fantastic job. But, it’s almost 5 years since the opening, and you’re still the best. Kudos!
