Modern take on a traditional Indonesian herbal drink
More than just herbal drink
Owner Jony Yuwono has done four years of research seeking the best ingredients from across Indonesia’s archipelago and mastering ancient techniques of jamu making. For centuries, jamu is believed to have healing and immunity benefits. More than that, jamu bears a deep philosophical meanin: it has 8 main recipes that stand for the 8 cycles of life and 8 points on a compass. This is why a traditional Jamu Gendong (jamu-seller lady) always carries 8 bottles on her back…
Acaraki experiments with modern brewing pressing and dripping techniques to introduce the jamu legacy to a younger audiences. Our favourite picks are Golden Sparkling; a refreshing cold jamu with soda that the ingredients that boost blood circulation and healthy skin; and Saranti is also on our list. Beras kencur (kaempferia galangal) with creamer will mprove your appetite.
