JALAK COFFEE & CACAO Takamatsu
- Environmental Planning Studio
Ethical Style Coffee Shop, Bakery, and Chocolatier from Indonesia
The new style coffee shop occupies the site of a fully renovated bakery. The coffee and chocolate use only fair trade coffee and cacao beans exclusively imported by the owner. These products, including high quality baked goods, are made on site and you can watch the process through the glass window while looking for a special treat for yourself or a gift for someone else. The concept was to create a space that was comfortable, friendly and new, but with minimal decoration.
The shop is divided into 2 areas, a cafe area at the back and the product retail area at the front. The graphic design used on various items including paper cups and the large outside mural symbolize the region of Indonesia that the beans are sourced from.
