IO – Juliet Capulet, Coffee and Comfort Food, located on Jalan Margonda Raya Depok, is the right choice for a cup of delicious coffee. Juliet Capulet was established in February 2013 under the name Juliet Cafe. In March 2019, the name Juliet Cafe was changed to Juliet Capulet with a different concept. The name was taken because the owner of Juliet Capulet, Dr. Yuliana Resolina Pateh, inspired by Juliet’s real name in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
Yuliana founded a cafe because she was interested in developing coffee roasting, palm sugar, tea, pepper, and others under the brand name Sari Alam and Blue-Green. Raw materials processed in the factory are obtained directly from farmers in various regions of Indonesia, such as turmeric, ginger, kencur, Maluku sago, and various types of coffee such as Maluku Coffee.
“Cafes as displays for products, and menus in cafes use our own processed products that have used computer technology so that the result is always the same,” said Dr. Yuliana, originally known as a cosmetics entrepreneur with Nefertiti Paris, Arumdalu and VJ Cosmetics brands.
In running a business, dr. Yuliana has the vision to better the health of others, so she chooses natural ingredients for health. According to her, healthy is obtained from food, while beauty is obtained by using natural cosmetics.
Juliet Capulet’s hommy concept: the cafe has white nuances, with flowers arranged on a shelf. In front of the cafe door, there is a decoration like entering a dwelling or residence. To the right of the entrance, there is a cafe kitchen where Juliet Capulet’s typical coffee mixers are made.
The cafe which consists of three floors has a capacity of up to 300 people. On the second and third floors, there are gathering or function room facilities that are used for meetings, seminars, photography or aerobics with friends. The available facilities are very suitable for the target audience of students, workers, and businesspeople.
