X Coffee: Kopi Susu Algorithm in Jakarta

 X Coffee

The trend of kopi susu in Jakarta is unbelievably high nowadays. Date back in 1990's where the cafe is not even existed, and the old generation only enjoys a cup of coffee in simplest environments, X Coffee try to adopt that phenomena and elevate it a bit. Using only the finest coffee beans that have been produced by local farmers and talented barista, each cup of kopi susu here is just authentic and intense in flavor.

Nestled inside Neo Tendean Hotel, X Coffee own a small yet spacious sitting area at the corner. With thematic and mathematic interior design, and huge plus comfort sofas, none of you would leave this place quickly. It cost me more than 2 hours here to sit and relax after facing a bit of traffic outside. During my visit, I also saw some GO-JEK driver who orders some beverage from X Coffee. It might be an excellent idea for you who are too lazy to step outside the room.

 Almond Milk Coffee

 Almond Milk Coffee XAC

 Almond Milk Coffee

Start with the crowd pleaser menu called X-AC (IDR 35,000 / S$ 4,10). Featuring the nice cup of coffee with the perfect ratio of espresso, milk, and foam; sprinkled with chia seeds. What attracts me a lot is the usage of Almond Milk instead of fresh milk for this item. As the results, it tastes less sweet than usual and more aromatic. I can feel the earthy and bitterness of espresso with an intense aroma of almond. The chia seeds component add a bit of crunchy texture during my slurp, but not too much. Love this item much more than it looks.

 Coffee Cone

 Coffee Cone

Known for the unique type of coffee, Cone with Z-CO2 (IDR 20,000 / S$ 2,60) is a must try item here. With Instagram-able looks and petite size, this beverage available in limited quantity daily. It is sweeter than the previous type of coffee but enjoyable. I love the crispiness of that cone with a nice layer of dark chocolate on top of the swirl. Just drink the coffee, and eat that cone immediately. Also, don't forget to watch the latte art show at the beginning and talk with the little barista there.

 Coffee Pudding

Another limited item is Y-P (IDR 20,000 / S$ 2,60). With jiggling texture and less sweet flavor, this coffee pudding is perfect to be paired with your choice of beverage. The ratio between sugar, jelly, and espresso is just perfect and works well in my mouth. Just expect for better presentation.

Es Kopi Susu

Es Kopi Susu

Looking for the common one? Get the Es Kopi Susu or known as X-O (IDR 15,000 / S$ 2,10). It tastes good as what I expected. You can feel the earthiness and bitterness of that coffee together with a sweet and creamy layer of foam. I can finish two cups a day for this item.

X Coffee

X Coffee is the perfect hangout spot for small talk and remote working. All beverages taste good and nicely brewed in house. Especially the ambiance is completely warm and friendly, cannot ask any better than this.
