Thamrin in Central Jakarta has a new coffee resident called 1/15 Coffee. As you enter the cafe, there are freshly baked pastries on the counter welcoming you. The pastries on offer include Toffee Date Pudding, Lemon Poppy Seed Cake and Banana Lime Cake. The menu here does not only focus on amazing coffee, but also specializes in a tempting brunch menu crafted by Head Chef, Take Hikaru.
Bananaw IDR 50k
The taste of pancakes can be quite overwhelming after some time, so they are usually meant for sharing. But it is not the case for these pancakes. These pancakes were super soft that it cracked upon sliding my spoon through the pancakes. As for the flavour, it was subtly sweet and the pancakes paired well with the refreshing caramelized banana. The addition of the coffee cream and vanilla ice cream also gave the pancakes some fragrant moisture. Best pancakes I have ever tasted.
Avocado Toast IDR 50k
A savoury dish that I tried was the Avocado Toast, an avocado guacamole, soft boiled egg and whipped garlic sauce served on a sourdough. The sourdough was neither too dry nor too soggy, and that was great. The rocket salad and parsley were also fresh. On the negative side, the avocado was too salty.
Cappuccino IDR 35k
I also had a cappuccino. The beans used were a houseblend from Dolok Sanggul, Ciwidey and Aronamis. It was good, great aroma and nice fruity taste.
Single Origin Brew IDR 35k
1/15 has undoubtedly good coffee. The Single Origin Brew was bold and has the right amount of acidicty.
All in all, 1/15 Coffee does not disappoint. Delicious coffee and brunches are served up in a well designed cafe. Now I see why the hype is real here.
