THE MOST WANTED COFFEE SHOP! Yeah, the wait is over now! Finally, Australian-based coffee roaster Toby’s Estate has opened their first outlet in Indonesia, exactly on PIK Avenue Mall in North Jakarta on December 10th, 2016.

And I'm so lucky to be invited in the grand opening of Toby's Estate first outlet! Whoossh, a lot of media friends, influencers, bloggers, etc were invited here. That's why I can't post and show you about the ambiance and the place, because the situation on that day was too crowd.

And if I'm not mistaken, this cafe is used a Mavam setup and a Kees van der Westen Spirit machine (be the first user in Indonesia) and they offered specialty coffees, which range from single-origin coffee to its signature Australian flat-white. 

Toby Smith, founder of Toby's Estate Coffee
Hey, he's Toby Smith! And today he shared about coffee and mastering the art of specialty coffee roasting. Started in the coffee plantations of Brazil, Guatemala and Colombia, where founder, Toby Smith learnt to grow, roast and cup coffee at the source. Inspired by what he had learnt, Toby returned home and converted his mum’s garage into a roastery and got to work mastering the art of speciality coffee roasting.

And besides, today we're also introduced to some of the brunch menu recommendations here. Are you curious? Let's discuss them one by one!

Brioche French Toast
Brioche French Toast, one menu that was introduced on that day, but unfortunately I didn't get a chance to taste it. But it looks quite tempting, perhaps on another chance, I will come to taste it.

Kale & Quinoa Salad
Kale & Quinoa Salad, consist of charred kale, red quinoa, shredded chicken, pickled cauliflower and shallots. Hmm, I'm not a lover of vegetables or salad like this. But I tried to taste! :) Every vegetables was really fresh with a light dressing.

Beef Ragu Pappardelle
Beef Ragu Pappardelle, served with generous meat and shredded cheese on top. Anyway, they used homemade pappardelle pasta and nicely cooked with tomato-based sauce.

Buttermilk Chicken and Corn Frittata
Buttermilk Chicken and Corn Frittata, as my favorite. A deep fried chicken served with coleslaw, spring onions and corn frittata. The chicken was so flavorful, juicy and tender. And also served with lovely sauce. Surely, this extremely got me hooked! THUMBS UP!

Beef Patty Melt Burger
Beef Patty Melt Burger, the patty was juicy and tender and served with french fries and fresh salad. The sauce also good and tasty. Just perfect for brunch!

Wohooo! See, guess who are they? Of course, they are one of the hosts of this event, Joe & Julie Taslim. This was my lucky chance, to meet and take a photo with them.

Anyway, I wanna say congratulations Toby's Estate for the opening of your first outlet in Indonesia. And I'll come back for another coffee and brunch again.
