A bit of storytelling on the man behind Java Soul Coffee, Mr. Martino! He is the 4th generation of coffee roaster from Milan where his family still has a 100 years old coffee roastery. He created Java Soul Coffee with different espresso blends and single origins coffee, 100% made from the best coffee farms in the country and roasted fresh every week in his roastery in South Jakarta. Well this explains why their coffee is SO SO GOOD!

Java Soul Coffee uses imported coffee machine all the way from Italy!

Also not to mention that Java Soul only use the highest quality of local coffee beans. By the way they also sell selection of local roasted beans they use, even the ceramic crafted cups and espresso machine. You can shop them all here: https://www.tokopedia.com/javasoulcoffee
