Manual Jakarta’s Debut Print Issue & Jakarta Coffee Manual (JCM) 2017

by Manual Jakarta
18th November 2017
We’re excited to be introducing our very first print issue as an offline supplement to our online site, where every copy will also be accompanied with this year's highly anticipated Jakarta Coffee Manual 2017.

For four years, Manual Jakarta has been bringing readers the latest happenings within the lifestyle scene of Jakarta through quality articles. Now, we’re excited to be introducing our first print issue as an offline supplement, providing tangible experience and emotional connection to support the practical immediacy of Manual Jakarta’s online site. Produced biannually, every copy of our current debut print issue will also be accompanied with this year’s highly anticipated Jakarta Coffee Manual (JCM) 2017.

Loosely based on the theme of “Love”, the issue delves into topics that go beyond the notion of romance. Contributor Dicky Jong captures tender moments within the city. Co-founder of Coworkinc, Cynthia Hasan, shares her experience as a mother. Plus, a look into IdFilmCenterFoundation’s mission to save the country’s disappearing audiovisual heritage and a profile on the celebrated fashion designer, Peggy Hartanto. On a lighter note, we took a fictional look on amusing obsessions over at the issue’s fashion editorial.

Whether you’re stuck in the horrendous traffic or taking a quick break in a neighbourhood coffee shop, we hope our print issue will serve as a companion to your daily life in Jakarta. This is why we have also combined this year’s JCM 2017 along with Manual Jakarta’s first print issue.

Since the first edition of Jakarta Coffee Manual in 2014, the specialty coffee scene has grown in strength and numbers. This year, JCM features a whopping 77 coffee shops scattered throughout the city. From sipping coffee in a hidden spot to a quick takeaway, there’s always a coffee shop in reach.

As always, for a little motivation, we’re giving away 30 lucky winners each a Jakarta Coffee Manual Card that entitles them to a daily free coffee from all participating coffee shops as well as special prizes. As the print issue comes with this year’s Jakarta Coffee Manual 2017, a purchase of at least one cup of coffee is needed before you can receive a copy. Manual Jakarta’s first print issue and Jakarta Coffee Manual 2017 come in limited amount, so grab them before it’s too late!
