Discover the benefits of Indonesian medicinal plants and make traditional Jamu in Jakarta

In Indonesia, herbal medicine has been seen, from generation to generation, as a traditional way to improve people’s quality of life. This is also Jony Yuwono’s belief, who is the founder of Acaraki. Acaraki is a place which specializes in making Jamu, a juice made from several medicinal plants authentic to the island of Java. 

Come and witness the making of Jamu, the recipe for which has been handed down from mother to daughter. While all Jamus contain the same ingredients (turmeric and ginger), the taste depends on each recipe, and you will discover that each Jamu has its own character. The one you’ll be making in this workshop is made out of coffee harvested in West Java, on the local Bogor farm.

As you make your juice, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the stories of the hosts, who will be delighted to pass on their expertise to you. Afterwards, you will be able to taste your own Jamu and give your body a boost.
