Tanamera Coffee’s New Branch in Serpong

The second Tanamera Coffee branch is located far from the madding crowd as it resides in the placid area of Serpong.

If there’s one place that gets people excited recently we could fairly suggest that it is Serpong, South Tangerang, which has garnered a special spot among Jakartan foodies by now. And Tanamera adds even more reasons to visit Serpong by opening a new branch in this soporific-turned-lively satellite city.

A year and a half after the opening of its flagship roastery in Thamrin, Tanamera aims high and massive for its second branch. Upon first glance, it’s easy to notice the extensive first-floor area that’s divided into two section: café and roastery (where two striking red Giesen roasters reside). Meanwhile, the second floor is a spacious area with rows of tables to accommodate Tanamera’s regular barista class.

By noon, college students inundate the place – sometimes fooling around with friends or focusing on their campus projects with books sprawling across the café’s communal table. Indeed, the café is a magnet for students since it is sandwiched between two campuses.

Tanamera is a fine alternative for a city that’s still lacking in specialty coffee options. As compared to its Thamrin branch, one doesn’t need to battle the horrendous traffic in order to reach the Serpong branch.
