As a coffee lover and an art enthusiast, Martin loves visiting coffee shops, especially independent, specialty coffee corners that offer delectable taste coming from their unique blends of coffee beans. At times, he would scour the space to find unique things that intrigue his minds including interesting books/magazines to accompany him before his spouse and kids join in.
More often than not, he can only find outdated, ragged magazines or old news-paper. And some coffee shops do not welcome young kids as they can be noisy, run around making a ruckus. This has even become a growing trend in Korea to not allow kids to enter their business premises (read: ‘No kids zone’ – right not to be disturbed or excessive restriction?)
Feeling that something is amiss he came up with an idea to start Coffee Goods & Books Indonesia (Instagram @coffeegoods.id)
Its main objective to provide food & beverage establishments (including coffee shops) with design goods that can attract customers (especially parents with kids or anyone who enjoys good books) to spend more quality time, hence encouraging the customer to come and stay.
The business curates aesthetic works from our partner designers and businesses, that are coffee-related and promoting local culture, for all lifestyle and ages. It also provides online goods and books for coffee lovers and cafe goers.
As their first installment of product releases, it comes with products inspired by Where’s Wally and numerous folklores from Indonesia, where you can find hidden games and mind-stimulating illustration (sold in different materials):
