Our History

It all began in 2017, and in a way that probably will surprise you…

Because Malena Coffee Roasters wasn’t founded by entrepreneurs in the traditional business sense, but by singer and songwriter, Maleena, and a group of her musician friends. We never saw our coffee roasts or our Bistro as just a business — to us it’s a passion, just like our music!

Great music brings people together, to have fun, dance and enjoy each
other’s company… And so does a great cup of coffee!

As musicians we always enjoyed the way our music bring friends together, families closer and unite communities around having a good time. When we discovered we could do the same though another art from — Coffee Roasting — we knew that was what we wanted to do.

Only Freshly Roasted Small Batch Coffee

Preparing a great cup of coffee is much like writing a song; it begins with the fundamentals. A musical composition relies on its rhythm and melody, and coffee relies on sourcing high quality beans and gently roasting them for a complex symphony of flavors and aromas. 

We carefully roast our beans to preserve all the unique flavor notes and nuances in our small batch, ethically sourced coffees. While heavy roasting can disguise imperfections in lower quality coffees — just like stage acts can hide flaws in mediocre songs— we believe fully in sourcing exceptional regional coffees of the highest quality, so nothing needs to be disguised.

From “Roastess” to Hostess

When the opportunity came for opening our own Bistro and Boulangerie and serve our exceptionally high end coffee roasts directly to coffee lovers needing a much deserved break, Maleena immediately took it. Now our freshly roasted coffee is no longer only available to high end restaurants, cafés and luxury hotels, but to everyone passing by! 

Located in the Southern part of the Jakarta Shopping and Business district, the Maleena Bistro and Coffeeshop is now serving our gourmet coffee and cuisine to the area’s hard working office workers and sophisticated millennials looking for a cosy place to relax, remote work, study or meet with friends, colleagues or business contacts.

Maleena Bistro and Boulangerie — Passion For Coffee

Our mission is for our friendly and smiling service, masterfully roasted coffee, delicious gourmet dishes and sophisticated surroundings to play together like the instruments in an orchestra and create wonderful experiences for our guests. — We can’t wait to invite you in our doors on Pacific Place!

Brief History

Our Coffee Roasting Business was established on a simple mission – to bring great tasting, freshly-roasted coffee to the community.

We were aware that finding amazing coffee was rare and had to be sought out. In 2017, we started putting an immense amount of love and care into roasting and packaging for our customers. Now, we continue our commitment to constantly serve excellent coffee in small batches and wholesale.
