Manual Coffee Brewing Workshop at MG&Co

To be honest, I know nothing about coffee brewing except pouring hot water to my ground coffee. That’s what I do every morning because it is practically the easiest one. Besides, I have no fancy tools or even machine with me. Just a mug and a spoon to stir. But you know, there seem to be some new coffee brewing tools available in store lately. Most of them are very affordable, compared to espresso machine, and easy to use!

I never tried using one until I went to MG&Co weeks ago to attend their Manual Coffee Brewing Workshop.

Yellow Truck, Bandung

There’s always room (and time) for coffee with a friend. So it was Sunday morning, and I was about to pack all my things and move all the way to Jakarta. I woke up early to pick Fred up at the train station as he offered a help (and who can refuse anyway?). Actually, I was planning to wake up earlier so I could have my breakfast at home, but, you know… I failed miserably.

So, anyway, on our way home, I was like : “Hey wanna grab a cup of coffee? I haven’t had mine this morning”. And I remembered weeks ago, my friend Augi told me about this new place of Yellow Truck Coffee. Just so you know, Yellow Truck used to have this very small and not-so-comfortable place. But now look what it got!

SF Roastery Coffee Lab, Bandung

You know, sometimes all you need is simply a cup of nice coffee in a small non-mainstream coffee shop with your dearest friend. So it was 3 days before I left Bandung, and I sort of showed my to-go-before-I-leave list to my friend, Augi, and she was like : “Oh! I forgot to take you to SF Roastery! We should go tonight!”. Then off we went!

SF Roastery is Augi’s favorite coffee shop in Bandung. And she has been willing to take me here ever since. “You’ll love it, Sharon!”, she said. I never knew what this place is all about, and uhm, I was not really sure if I’m going to love it or hate it. I didn’t hear much about this place either. But now I understand why she insisted on taking me here.

Halloween at Enoshima

I know that Halloween’s been over for nearly two weeks now and that soon Christmas is coming. And I know that it’s way too late to post something Halloween-related. But never mind, I’m still gonna post it anyway. So last Halloween, which also makes my first time celebrating Halloween like, EVER, I had a lil ‘party’ at Enoshima with dearest #BandungFoodies friends. Like any other people, we were supposed to wear costumes, but turned out everyone seemed to be busy before the dinner so we all decided just to wear a couple of accessories except for one guy…. which did the makeup himself and made him look like, this.Lanjutkan membaca “Halloween at Enoshima”

Two Cents : Brew Believer

If you’ve been following my Instagram, or even better, if you know me personally, you might already noticed that I am such a coffee addict. I think my parents should be proud of me because I’m addicted to coffee, not to drugs.

Anyway, I ALWAYS have my coffee first thing in the morning. It’s a black strong one. And it’s peaberry coffee – if you know what I’m talking about. Even if I wake up late, I somehow still managed to brew my morning coffee, by any chance. Believe it or not? I’d rather be late than to skip my morning routine. I found, that without the kick from the coffee, I have difficulty doing my activity, even the simple one like…. walking to class. Ha!
