Kopi susu, actually is coffee with milk in Indonesian, is one trending hype right now. Almost every week I see new comers are popping up, introducing this kind of coffee to those people. The style is similar, transparent cup with their own branding, covered with affordable price.
I've tried this 3 #KopiSusu and here's the thought!

Cipete Raya/Pasar Santa
As a pioneer of Kopi Susu in Jakarta, they must have been very proud on setting the trend. I did remember on my first sip, this kind of coffee was not a familiar one to my taste bud. I never had a sweet iced coffee before. After a glass, I found myself craving for it though. For me, Kopi Tuku set the standard of Kopi Susu in Jakarta. Hint of palm sugar, mild coffee, ad rocks of ice, those kind of ingredients design a great cup of Kopi Susu!

ES KOPI SUSU ANIMO-IDR 18k
Jl. Cipete I no. 6a
Few things I love about animo: their cute little cafe in Cipete area (so far away from my neighborhood, tho), creamy Kopi Susu, and freshly baked bakery which was very tasty. The Kopi Susu itself is kind unique, they blend it through the process of making, producing one cup of cream Kopi Susu. On the first sip, it was heavenly! I found myself could not finished the whole cup because the texture was kind heavy and fulfilling. I do recommend to share it with family or friends. Don't forget to try their delicious pastry, too! Everything was so fragrant, tasty, and affordable.
KOPILAH-IDR 21k via gofood, IDR18k if you buy directly at Plaza Indonesia Level 5
Kopilah is one collaboration between my fave coffee shop (Calibrate Coffee) with Eatlah. This portion of Kopi Susu was a perfect size for me. The coffee was not too mild to give you the caffeine boost, with a hint of sweetness that quite dominating (reminded me of maple syrup, tho). I can really drink this every single day!
I know I haven't try another goodness of Kopi Susu in Jakarta, but well, my busy job forced me to do it one by one.
So, what's next?
