“Culture and my City - What goes up and what comes down?”

Jakarta's consistency in drinking coffee is unquestionable. From the very traditional form, into its current adaptation of the globalized “café” trend, we can consider it a culture of its own, complete with its evolution over time. Finding coffee physically intolerable myself, I'm asking a writer-cum-urban-activist Rika Febriyani to initialize our proto-intervention on this culture.

PS: This is the first of following series, where I no longer have “agents” running around, substituted by “partner[s]-in-crime” instead, where I discuss possibilities of a topic, since the initiation stage of an idea.
