Belitung, Indonesia: part✌🏽
Travel to Indonesia and you will find unique coffee traditions on each island ☕ Jogakarta, for example, has the famous Kopi Joss — black coffee brewed with a piece of charcoal…. It's said to be therapeutic 🤒 And it's actually quite good.
On Belitung, we drank Kopi Manggar, or coffee with a generous dollop of condensed milk. The #foodiepackers
loved it 😍 A sweet treat to fuel endless hours of #nongkrong
, the Indonesian term for chilling out while chatting about everything and nothing in particular.
This type of coffee actually gets it name from the town of Manggar on the eastern part of the island. Manggar is also known the 'Home of 1000 Coffee Shops’ (#tbh
Chris read about this fabled place, there was no way we were not going 😂)
So if you find yourself on Belitung, and need to refuel after a long day at the beach, pick a coffee shop, order your coffee and some snacks, and settle in for #nongkrong
