Food (C)rave: Turning Point Coffee

7:11:00 PM Jessica Chia 0 Comments

If you live in Tangerang, drive a lot, and happen to be an avid fan
of this magic bean called coffee, chances are you are a very grumpy person.

I mean, who will drive through the gridlock from Tangerang to Jakarta,
back and forth, back and forth, just to get his/her favorite cup of joe
if this person is not a coffee snob?

There, I said it.
Now here’s the good news for you, Tangerang people - Serpong,
Karawaci, Alam Sutera folks, yes I’m talking to you -
you can cut back on your time and fuel 
to grab your caffeine fix as per today.

Be grumpy no more,
for the absence of specialty coffee shop
has now been filled with the opening of Turning Point Coffee.

For a price, ranging from IDR 25k to 47k,
skilful hands will work their magic behind the silver La Marzocco
to craft your coffee of choice. Using only quality beans,
selection will be updated almost every week.
Common Grounds, Morph Coffee, and Tanamera
are some of local micro-roasteries,
of which their beans can be spotted here.
Talking about the place, I must admit they have a lovely outdoor section.
Credit goes to its high ceiling and semi-open rooftop.
What else you need to know about this establishment is that they are pet-friendly.

Yes, it means what it is. You are granted
to take your dose of caffeine while having your pet next to you.
How cool is that!
2 cups of coffee, Flat White and Mocha (both using house blend),
and 1 slice of Banana Nutella Mille Crêpe from La Reia
were my order that day.

Flat White was good, not too strong and not acidic.
Mocha was even better, I remember one of
the blend characteristics was being dark chocolate-y,
which complemented the chocolate in a cup of Mocha,
resulting in smooth and wholesome body of joe.

As for the cake, what can go wrong with banana and Nutella?
