To be honest, I had pretty low expectations of Kopi Sajati before I arrived because it’s located on a busy road in an uninteresting part of town and I just couldn’t imagine what sort of clientele they might have. So I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the coffee shop and realised that many of the customers were doctors and students from Immanuel Hospital across the road.
The coffee shop is clearly targetting a certain type of customer by serving amazing specialty coffee in a tastefully decorated old school building. I had a cappuccino which was quite strong and gave me an immediate caffeine hit which lasted a few hours. Susan had a green tea macchiato which looked nothing like what you’d expect. A big Ikea-style glass filled with a matcha substance and topped with sweet foam. It was pretty good!The fitout here is old school, but tasteful with a bunch of old furniture, plain white walls and a few more modern fittings like the lights. It works well and I’m a fan.
The working situation here isn’t the best, but it’s certainly doable if you need to open a laptop. We sat on the lounge and alternated between resting our laptops on our laps and on the coffee table. Electricity sockets are plentiful here, but the WiFi is a bit slow. Definitely fast enough for web browsing, but probably too slow to upload your latest YouTube video.Prices here are fantastic and we’re surprised they can produce such a good cup of coffee at this price. But they do.And because of all these reasons, we can safely say this is a really good coffee shop on the Bandung scene. Let’s hope the doctors keep popping in for their coffees in order to keep this place ticking over.
