We're just regular folks sharing the same passion for coffee and obsessed with consistency. But the journey is never about us. It's always been about coffee, people and all acts of happiness we experienced and shared around this neighbourhood and everything in between. On top of that, we're more than just a coffee shop. We're a fair trade coffee supporters aiming to take an active role in the ecosystem by helping to promote and grow the nation's specialty coffee industry. We love what we do and we're proud at it. To us, this is our way to contribute to the community as well as Indonesia's coffee scene.

“I have five years of experience in the coffee industry. I started when I was living in Sydney. A career as a barista had never crossed my mind, but I love coffee and I’d always dreamed of owning a coffee shop. While I was studying in Australia, I had some spare time and I wanted to earn a little cash. I became a barista and quickly fell in love with the job. After I returned to Indonesia in early 2014, I worked in a cafe here in Jakarta. So here's our humble beginning. We're living our passion, our dream. We wanted to set an example to all aspiring baristas out there to work hard and live their passion. We need more competent, professional and self-motivated baristas because great coffee doesn't just happen; it requires knowledge and consideration of every aspect of the environment. We hope Goni can be a place where new baristas can learn, exchange knowledge and help them in channeling their passion.

“I love coffee and 4 years ago I moved to Sydney to learn more about coffee, working as a barista from one coffee shop to the other. I always dreamed of owning my own coffee shop and serving coffee to my customers. I saved up all my savings as I wanted to run my own coffee shop when I go back to Indonesia. I came back from Sydney in 2014 and worked in a coffee shop here. Never imagine that I would have open my own coffee shop this soon, but it's been a long journey and struggle I guess. I believe the first step of appreciating coffee starts with the barista and they play an important role in advancing the coffee industry. That's why they got to have skills and passion. Barista is a skilled profession and part of our mission at Goni is to spread our passion for coffee, help and germinate new legions of great baristas and make them feel proud in what they do. So here we are, entrepreneurs in struggle as we call ourselves whose living our dream and doing what we love.
