a short diary of some part of my life.

Djournal coffee, another establishment by Ismaya Group. The group has opened some of the most popular restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in Jakarta. Djournal is I believe their first attempt running a coffee shop.

It’s funny when the first thing that comes to mind is coffee. I immediately looked at their selections. It’s piss poor. They have nothing to brag about. Then, I watched their barista brewing a coffee, it almost looks like they never train their employees in the first place or the training is not as what a coffee establishment should have trained baristas. The place is superbly designed. The music is good for the ears, not too loud and not too low. It’s a perfect place to sip your coffee drinks, spend quality time with your colleagues, or be alone in enjoying the inviting ambience.

Like most Ismaya Group’s establishments, it’s a pity they don’t look more into what they are serving. They have excellent taste for design but the foods they are serving leave a lot to be desired.

My score for Djournal is 3/5. The biggest downfall is their limited assortment of coffee.
