I have big expectations since the name “Kopi Kalyan” has been circulating around in instagram for a while and they have such a nice packaging for their Es Kopi (which sparks my interest to come over and visit). However, when I arrived at the location, the venue was quite hot, as in the temperature, not adjective. It’s also quite packed and there were no seats left for us to sit. It’s understandable since they were having an event at that moment. So, I ordered both Ice Cappuccino to go and their infamous Es Kopi Kalyan. I asked for a skinny cap, but unfortunately the cashier did not get it at all, I think, or if they did not have that milk option, they’ve failed to communicate it to me as they just proceed with my order. The moment I asked for a skinny one, the cashier stopped for a second trying to understand it, did not inquire me further, and asked whether that is all? Anyways, I did not get my skinny cap in the end. Their Cappucino itself is not something I dig in. It’s quite acidic for me and leaves a funny after taste. My boyfriend said it is okay for him, not bad in his opinion even though he admits that it’s acidic. Also another issue for me, their Cappucino taste a lot like Latte than a Cappucino. Es Kopi Kalyan was you know, the usual Jakarta’s Ice Coffee. A bit too sweet for me, it felt quite “thick” as well. I don’t know whether it came from the creamer or the milk, but it does not leave a funny after taste. Is it something that I’d come back for? I guess not. The packaging is very instagrammable though, but it’s a one time only thing. Maybe I’d come again in the future and maybe I’ll change my mind. But for now, this is my honest review. Kopi Kalyan is definitely doing something right with their digital presence and marketing, they understand how to pique your interest, however when it comes to the product itself, it certainly did not live up to (my) standard.

Healthy bowlnya aku rekomendasi bgt! Enak dan ngenyangin. Carrot cakenya juga oke cocok untuk nemenin kopi favorit. Tempatnya oke buat meeting/kerja/sekedar nongkrong. Banyak spot buat foto ootd atau sekedar hunting. Ada bagian indoor dan outdoor buat yg mau ngerokok. Tapi untuk weekend tempat ini cukup rame jadi mungkin ada beberapa orang yang kurang suka. But overall aku suka ke sini karena juga deket rumah.
