February 23rd, 2018. Around May 2017, I planned to visit Kalakopi. Too bad I didn’t find the place. And at that time, our car got a hit and run from another car. *sobbing* So, we went home straight after the accident. After that I didn’t have time to visit the place until then. I ordered online car, and finally found the place. LOL.
Located in a busy street of Wahid Hasyim, it’s not far from Paragon Hotel. If you find Paragon, just look to their next building. Kalakopi is in the corner. Spacious area with homey ambiance. Friendly barista. *very important!* Well, I never liked arrogant people. So if you’re arrogant, hope we never met. LOL. When I came, there was 2 ladies in a separate table. The first one I guess a loyal customer, because she looked very familiar with the barista. The second one I believe a first-timer like me. She used to work in a coffee shop, but she said that it was already closed. Hmmm.. too bad. Well, yeah, I am a good listener. I was listening to their conversations hahaha..
When you like eskopisusu with creamier texture, you come to the right place. Their KalaKopiSusu was quite milky with not-too-strong coffee. But, I like it that way. LOL. So, if you’re a fan of strong coffee, you should tell them when you order. “Mister, I need stronger one.” Nuff said.
Banana Cake with Butter 16k
I love banana cake. But some place were selling a hard banana cake with no delicious flavour or just plain. When I saw that they were selling banana cake, I asked the barista. “Is it good?” He said, “It’s good. But if it’s not good, you have to tell me.” And, it’s GOOD! It looked dry, but it was very buttery with delicious flavour. It’s quite hard for me to find a perfect banana cake. And I could say that it’s one of the best. Recommended!
Thank you Kalakopi for the delicious coffee and banana cake.
