Kopineto, A Petite Cozy Space for Your Caffeine Sip

Strolling around Kuningan area for this Sunday, Kopineto came out as one of the coffee shops on the list. A petite one as expected, looking at the location which was at Karet Pedurenan. Finding it through Instagram, actually I initially didn't know the complete address so I simply went to Karet Pedurenan then go through the road trying to figure out where it was exactly resided. Being well prepared, my friends and I came there using online pickup service so we wouldn't find trouble in searching for parking space knowing the road was so narrow and having high traffic as usual. We then found out that it was next to Dream Salon and Spa so for now, you could use this salon as the destination spot on your Google Map to find the way here.  

Regardless the small size, it could accommodate approximately 20 to 30 people I guessed since the building was a 3-storey one. It was surprisingly comfy as well having one communal table at each floor and long tables by the window and the wall at the second floor. 

The design was quite simple with grey-ish cement walls, which probably a decade ago would be considered as unfinished building but nowadays taken as hype theme. The wooden furniture added lighter color into the decoration making it looked more alive. There were also quotes printed on canvas, which were actually sold yet simultaneously used to enliven the moody color tone of the coffee shop itself.

I wasn't sure if they're still on soft-opening or they indeed wanted to maintain the concept this way, but at my visit, they mainly offered coffee. The only available coffee pairing was the Pandan Chiffon Cake displayed beside the cashier. 

Simply said, I went for everything they had on the menu. LOL, yes literally everything, since everything here meant Pandan cake and coffee only. Not putting high expectation since the beginning, the Pandan Cake (IDR 15k) wasn't bad, but not like the 'best of the best' cake as well. I'd call it light-bites due to its moist texture, making it a right choice to go for especially if you're not that much into heavy cakes.

Going to the main part, the coffee, the current options were either black or white. Picking the white one, I opted for Hot Cappuccino (IDR 30k), which appearance wise turned out to be like Latte. The taste was okay, being neither sour nor bitter, yet bluntly speaking still not my most favorite cup. 

Final sayings, all the best for this 'new-born' coffee shop. Perhaps more choices of foods and beverages would be a lovely idea :)
