Caribou Coffee : A Place We Love


Jakarta is a busy and crowded metropolitan city. Many people started its activities early in the morning, it is no wonder more and more coffee shops popping up in town, either a local coffee shop or international coffee shop chain. Caribou Coffee is one of the coffeehouse chain from America who was currently exploring the coffee  market in Indonesia.Caribou Coffee_

Caribou Coffee was founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1992. In Indonesia Caribou partnered with Mahadya Group which operates other US-based food and beverages chains like Carl’s Jr, Wingstop and LOKA lifestyle supermarket. Their first store in Indonesia located in Senopati area in South Jakarta, then the 2nd outlet in Bandung, and recently they just opened their third store in Citos.

This cosy  coffee shop really makes me feels like at home. On the right front corner of the room, there is a fireplace flanked by two comfy red chairs. Across the fireplace behind the food counter and cashier, the friendly barista will greet you with a friendly gesture.

Peach Yoghurt (tester)- peach & peach syrup with yoghurt and granola

In May 2016, I attended  their new outlet opening in Citos. Besides  the store opening on the same day, they also launched a several new menus for the Indonesian market. The have three new drinks: Salted Vanilla Latte, Salted Vanilla Cooler and Vanilla Creme Cappuccino. Yes, all of their new refreshing beverages use vanilla syrup.  The goodness of this drink because they use the real vanilla beans and not the artificial flavouring to make their vanilla syrup.

If you don’t like latte and other coffee flavoured drink no need to worry, Caribou Coffee have a slow bar where you can choose the coffee beans and the brew method according to our preferences. Caribou coffee has several coffee blends like Mocha Java, Daybreak Blend, Obsidian and Sumatra.Collages2

Caribou coffee has a cosy and comfy place with separated smoking and non-smoking area. Lots of drink and food choice available, another plus point is they have slow bar section for a real coffee drinker. I will definitely go back when I’m in Cilandak area.
