TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A coffee shop called Mokka Coffee Cabana in Bintaro, Tangerang, features a well-known type of cappuccino art preparation style that makes this coffee shop stand out from other cafes in its vicinity. It is the 3D latte art, which was originally introduced and popularized by a Japanese barista, Kazuki Yamamoto, that you can enjoy here.
If you are a latte-lover, you will enjoy the variety of latte arts that Mokka Coffee Cabana has on their menu. This place serves 3D latte art on a regular basis since established in 2013. It is a style of serving on any coffee-based beverage with a three-dimensional foam art incorporated in and on top of the drink.
A three-dimensional milk foam art of a chubby kitten swimming in the coffee mug with its paws gripping the edge of the cup would make your day. Its ears, eyes, nose, and paws are drawn with chocolate paste. When you taking a sip, the kitten gets smaller in size and drowns a little deeper into your cappuccino.
According to the café’s supervisor, the 3D latte art is mainly ordered by female customers, ”Maybe because it looks cute,” says Vendi.
You can order a small sized cup of cappuccino at Mokka Coffee Cabana for Rp39,000. The espresso that they use is a special mix of Robusta and Arabica where it still maintains a balanced taste of milk and the bitterness of coffee. Vendi says that this menu is available in all Mokka Coffee Cabana cafes throughout Jakarta and Surabaya.
Another coffee shop that provides the 3D latte art is Ninotchka in Kalideres, West Jakarta. They, of course, have their own unique identities. A cup of 3D latte art in Ninotchka can last a little longer since it is 2-3 centimeters more puffy and thick. The artwork will not instantly disappear once you have taken a sip of the cappuccino.
Talking about the taste, the mixture between coffee and milk can be considered to be at the medium level. No flavors dominate the cup as it is beautifully balanced.
Ninotchka also serves 3D latte art on top of other types of beverages such as Nutella Latte, Green Tea Latte, Hot Chocolate, Vanilla Cookie Latte, and Babycinno. The price of these beverages vary from Rp15,000 until Rp30,000 per serve.
