Following the success with the opening of % Arabica outlets in Jakarta and Bali, recently % Arabica has launched its fifth store and the first roastery in Indonesia.
Located in the heart of Jakarta’s prominent culinary district of Senopati – Gunawarman, % Arabica Jakarta Roastery design concept gets its inspiration from Dutch colonial architecture, industrial factory zenithal windows, traditional Javanese craftsmanship, and % Arabica’s precision around the craft of coffee making.
The building was designed around the Probat UG22 vintage coffee roaster that is the star feature. The ground floor, the passageways and the mezzanine are all points of
view offered to visitors on the activity of the roasting workshop. It also incorporates floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize natural light in the two-floor outlet. At the front, there is a long terrace that opens out to the street and welcomes visitors.
The first % Arabica Roastery in Indonesia is outfitted with a Probat UG22 vintage roaster that can roast around 22 kilograms of coffee beans per batch and is overseen closely by % Arabica’s head barista to obtain the best results. The German-made machine is a coffee process pioneer, having been in existence since 1868. Probat has become the world market leader in machinery and systems for the coffee and food industry.
The % Arabica Jakarta Roastery also serves the % Arabica menu, from its signature lattes and the crowd favorite Coffee and Matcha % Soft Cream.
