"I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you
Yes there's a chance that I've fallen quite hard over you.
I've seen the paths that your eyes wander down
I want to come too"

Sunday afternoon, good song is playing along in the background. The heat of Kelapa Gading area was beaten by this new cool coffee shop: Porta Filter Coffee.

One step inside and I knew it. I fell in love with this coffee shop, even before I had my first sip. I felt like I was home: comfortable, friendly, and the ambiance was so familiar and warm. It was spacey, instaganic, with this 'hype' industrial grey decoration. Feeling rustic and cushy at the same time. My favorite part of it? Natural light at its best. Place to hang out? Checked.

They had some selections of food menu, beside the coffee they served. I recently went to some new coffee shops around in Jakarta, but sorry to say, they did not beat my previous favorite. Porta filter's latte, I had to admit, easily won my heart. First sip and I knew it was gonna turn my day to be a better one! (Yes, crappy coffee annoyed me!)

They had these selections of eclairs: chocolate, peanut, and coffee. The dazzling topping of their peanut eclair drooled me much and I thought I had this right decision by choosing it. It was crunchy on top, soft pastry, and tasty creamy filling inside. 
They also had some mouth watering cakes on display too! Oh I wished I had a larger quantity on my tummy!

Overall I really liked Portafilter coffee. The ambiance, the coffee, the food, really pleased me. I really wished Kelapa Gading is much nearer to my house (which is in west Jakarta). I had this favorite coffee shop in Kelapa Gading area (bet you know this one), but Portafilter is surely worth the visit!
