2. HOURS Coffee and More
HOURS Coffee & More is not just a place to hang out and have afternoon tea, but it’s also a haven for digital nomads who want to enjoy some time alone with their laptops. HOURS is also very Instagenic, with distinctive retro vibes that will make you want to take selfies all the time. Whether you’re alone or in a group, it’s the place to go when you need to present an impressive image of Jakarta.
Their selection of artisanal teas will certainly impress you. You have the usual white tea with some variations (infused by Persian pink rose and Egyptian basil, wow!), black tea perfumed with bergamot, and rooibos tea with an assortment of notes. But our eyes immediately jumped at their renditions of Japanese tea. For starters, they have the aptly-named Momotaro tea, which is Japanese sencha with peach infusions. Another particularly delectable treat is the Ume Ume, yet another sencha, this time with festive Japanese spring flavors like ume, cherry blossoms, and cheerful pink konpeito (Japanese hard candy).
