    A bit slow, some tendency towards melodrama, but charming and sincere

    The film tells the story of two friends who grew up together, Ben and
    Jody, as they struggle to manage a funky little specialty coffee shop
    in Jakarta (Filosofi Kopi) that Jody has inherited together with a pile
    of debt. While Jody handles the business side of things, Ben is the
    (often-precious) creative genius who really understands both the
    aesthetics and the philosophy of coffee. The success of the enterprise
    hinges on Ben’s brewing the best house coffee in Indonesia. The
    backstories of the main characters are explored as the pressure
    increases, and tensions rise between the two of them.

    The film is not exactly action packed—it’s a bit slow at times—but
    the dialogues are well-structured and realistic and the acting is good.
    The movie starts out particularly strong, but tends a little towards
    melodrama in the last half when the backstories of the main characters
    are developed. Overall, the story line is charming in its sincerity.
    The movie is visually strong: the recreation of the environment of the
    coffee shop and the nice exterior shots of the coffee plantations of
    Indonesia are particularly notable.
