To say we take our coffee seriously would be an understatement. Our latte glasses were hand carried from Australia because we couldn’t find the right size glasses in Indonesia. We work closely with acclaimed barista / coffee guru, Katie Allen from Revolver. Our house blend is 100% Arabica from Colombia, Guatemala and Papua. Fresh milk comes from expat Australian cows living in Java (yes they have visa's). But most importantly we always pour a double ristretto.... a single shot of coffee passing through a double hit of coffee grind. That means you get pure golden crema goodness which makes for the best coffee, full of oils, aroma, richness and taste that a single shot simply won't give you. All this coffee snobery is pulled through our gorgeous retro Marzocco at the hands of our expert baristas. Obsessed... only a little. We welcome you to linger over a perfect cup or swing by for a quick coffee-to-go.
Every morning while the roosters are still sleeping Monsieur Spoon wakes up at 4am and rolls out of bed. He does it for one reason only... his mad passion for baking the best croissants this side of Paris. They're crisp and flaky on the outside light and buttery on the inside... I’ve heard the word transcendental being used and that’s just the beginning... Moist carrot cake, creamy oreo cheese cake, flour less orange and almond cake, rich gooey lava cake with organic vanilla ice cream, salted caramel slices, pecan pie, and freshly baked cookies... all divine and all available every day at Watercress.
It's what got people talking about Watercress in the beginning when the original owners set up shop. A homage to the "warung", a smorgasbord of organic color, fresh abundant salads, quiches, lasagnas, fresh fish and all things good and yummy. We haven’t messed with it, it's perfect just as it is, but be quick, we run out pretty fast.
