GOOLA – Authentic Indonesian Drinks, Jakarta

Goola or read Gula means sugar, it’s a new beverage brand focusing on authentic Indonesian drinks with modern twist by Gibran Rakabuming Rama the son of Indonesian president.

Out of many new beverage brands, Goola’s unique concept caught our attention immediately because unlike other brands, they focus on bringing Indonesian drinks to the next level, that’s why AnakJajan think it’s worth sharing on the blog.

Recently we visited Goola’s Plaza Indonesia outlet (near Foodhall) at the opening day, there was a press conference by Mr. Gibran and partners. We learned the fact that Goola uses Oxium Plastic that only lasts for 2 years so it is more environmentally-friendly, gotta give them thumbs up for the effort.

On another occasion we also visited Pacific Place Mall outlet since we were curious with the taste of Goola’s drinks. If we’re not mistaken, Goola’s has opened a few outlets: Plaza Indonesia, Pacific Place Mall, Cikini, MKG1, Tokopedia Tower.

There are many options to try:
Signature Series (Es Doger Jeger, Es Merdeka 45, Es Goola Aren, Es Cincau, Es Kacang Hijau, Es Ketan Hitam)
Tea Series (Teh Pandan Coco, Teh Melati Coco, Teh Papa, Teh Mama, Teh Markiskis, Teh Terong Belanda)
Refreshing Series (Jerit, Nano-Nano, Markiskis, Terong Belanda, Es Blewah)
Coffee Series (Goolatte, Kopi Hitam, Kopasus, Kopi Susu Gula Aren, Komandan – Kopi Susu Pandan)

Here are some of the drinks we’ve tried:

Es Doger Jeger IDR 27k (M)/ IDR 30k (L)
This one tastes as good as it looks! It consists of green sticky rice, coconut flesh, coco foam, fermented cassava and “dasar doger”. For us it’s more like a dessert instead of drink, wonderfully fragrant with nice texture and flavor combination between the ingredients. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Nano-nano IDR 23k
The tamarind based drink has nostalgic flavor for us. It reminds us of old-school tamarind candy, refreshing sweet with subtle sour taste. Personally we prefer it to be more sour though but nevertheless it was still enjoyable.

Es Merdeka 45 IDR 27k (M)/ IDR 30k (L)
Local version of bubble drink with coconut milk, red tapioca pearls, coco pandan syrup and signature coco foam. Love the fact that the coconut taste in it was smooth creamy without overpowering.

Es Blewah IDR 23k
For refreshing drink option, this one is our top favorite. Sweet and refreshing with basil seeds and cantaloupe, perfect thirst quencher on hot sunny day.

Es Blewah IDR 23k, Es Doger Jeger IDR 27k (M)

Overall, AnakJajan think that it’s a good idea to bring traditional Indonesian drink in a more convenient and more accessible concept. It tastes great as well, can’t wait to try other varieties soon.
