Some days ago, I got a suggestion to visit a coffee-shop with an Italian name...
Casa Verde, a welcoming and easy place, simply designed, trim and well-conceived in its limited available space.
A black partition with a white sketch, depicting the theme of the place, contrasts with the red tubes of the lamps and the wood all around the hall.
Behind the corner counter, there's a big board with the beverages list and, after you ordered your drink, you can choose to sit on a stool at the bar, at one of the tables with benches or on a bar-chair in front of a long wall-table.
Staff is very kind and, while I'm waiting for my drink, oh sorry, for "the drink!", we have a chat about coffee, cup and Italian inspiration of the spot.
Let's check for Criteria...
Cappuccino, at Casa Verde, is presented in a classic-size cup, metal spoon, two different kinds of sugar and no-cocoa on the top.
Pattern is simple and likable.
Temperature is perfect! Espresso is good with its Medan-Brasil beans blend, milk is well-steamed and foam is rich, if it had been more creamy, this Cappuccino would have been great!
Taste is very good and balance of flavour is proper.
So, Casa Verde, Rumah Hijau in Bahasa Indonesia, is a place that I recommend if you want to have an enjoyable Cappuccino experience along with courtesy and competence of the staff.
