Do you love coffee?
Well, I do like coffee, but I could pass a day without drinking one.
Do you know anything about coffee? About how to make it? The technique behind it?
I only know coffee milk, cappuccino, coffee late, and other regular coffee. I don’t even know the difference on the taste between Robusta and Arabica haha.
If you are the opposite of myself, and a die-hard coffee fans, perhaps you should visit Armor Kopi located just beside the lake and the forest of Taman Hutan Raya Juanda in Bandung.
So why you as a die-hard coffee fans (I think) should come to this place?
First, they have a couple of variations of coffee beans. The barista has explained to me about the difference of the taste and acidity between Robusta and Arabica. For me as long as the coffee has lower acidity, then I go for it. As I did not remember the coffee beans that I chose and after a google search, I think I will go for Robusta – as the acidity is less than Arabica, and the taste is bitter.
Second, they serve the coffee with various kind of techniques French Press, V60, and many more … But the technique that I know are only the instant mix – where I just mix the coffee powder, cream, and little sugar, and also the Vietnamese coffee technique, where I just wait the dripping of the coffee stops.
To be honest I came here because of the place haha!
The coffee shop itself is only a small wooden building, and most of the sitting area is located outside of the small coffee shop, either directly beside the forest, or an additional deck beside the coffee shop and facing the lake.
My choice was of course to sit facing the forest.
It’s just felt lovely and serene, especially if there’s not much people on the area haha!
As this place is beside a forest, makes the temperature cooler – or perhaps it was actually already cooler when I came to that place at that time haha?
If you don’t like coffee but still want to visit this place, Armor Kopi also serves tea (with its French press technique), and some traditional snacks, such as cireng – a traditional snack from Bandung that is made from tapioca flour 🙂
And I can assure you that they have a very delicious sauce for the cireng 😉
I will absolutely visit this place again with friends to chill and enjoy the ambiance, accompany with a cup of coffee and cireng 😉
