Are you into coffee but your friends are more into tea? Have you ever wanted a place where you can enjoy good cup of coffee and great quality tea, all under the same roof, without having to move even a step away? Tobi’s Coffee & Tea in Serpong is made to cater that market.
When I got there last week, the place was already half-full. Looks like people in the neighbourhood are responding very well to the concept that they offer. Oh, and the slowly setting sunlight spilling off through the facade pulled me even harder to spend some time finding out what Tobi’s had to offer.
I took a seat and ordered the usual cup of Cappuccino, a tasty looking Salted Caramel & Speculoos cake, and a Blooming Flower Tea specially delivered from Lewis & Carroll Tea Jakarta. Beans were coming from CoffeeSmith Jakarta, a favorite establishment for coffee enthusiasts, which in my mind translated to a strong point for Tobi’s coffee. And what a strong point it was! The Ethiopian Yirgacheffe x West Java Pasundan blend from CoffeeSmith boasted a magical hint of jasmine and a slight taste of milk chocolate. Love it. With their sexy full white La Marzocco Linea PB, they created the best cup of coffee I had that week.
Their wide selections of tea from Lewis & Carroll are also available to browse, although their collection is not as complete as their branch in Jakarta. Don’t worry though, they have the crowd’s favorite: Blooming Flower Tea.
With that I rest my case. I am a happy target market. It sufficiently provides the best of both worlds: coffee and tea. And I hope, you, lovers of either or both would come and experience Tobi’s too.
