Where to find the Best Coffee in Bali

It’s a well-known fact that of the many tourists visiting Bali at any given time in the year, a large percentage will be Australian (the flight is as short as 3 hours from Perth to Bali’s Denpasar airport). It’s also a well-known fact that Australians love their coffee – and GOOD quality coffee at that. So, it may come as no surprise that Bali’s coffee industry is growing at an exponential rate. New coffee shops are constantly opening their doors to caffeine-hungry travels, expats and locals alike. So, when you’ve confirmed your Mayaloka Villas accommodation, packed your bags and you’re ready to get that cafe/restaurant itinerary going, add these places to your must-do list for a fantastic coffee hit in the beautiful haven that is Bali.

UBUD

Gangga Coffee: This speciality coffee spot is a short 5-minute drive outside of Ubud’s town centre. It’s a great spot if you’re looking for somewhere a little quieter to relax and enjoy some great coffee while you read, do some work, or chat with the friendly staff!

Anomali Coffee: A great spot to have breakfast and drink coffee, Anomali serves premium coffee beans sourced from many parts of Indonesia. Located on Jalan Raya Ubud, this is a top pick for your daily brew!

Seniman Coffee: At Seniman, coffee is taken very seriously. They mostly offer hand-brewed filter coffee and offer workshops, too.

Revive Bali: Soon to be turned into a roastery, Revive Ubud opened in 2017. The atmosphere is second to none – there are often locals playing music, singing and chatting to each other. This is a popular spot for expats or those wanting to venture away from the bustling main streets in Ubud.

SEMINYAK

Revolver: It’s hard to find a cooler coffee joint in Seminyak or Bali for that matter. Revolver is located down an alleyway. Once you open the door, a large, dark bar area is revealed. They also have merchandise (t-shirts, mugs) on display for you to purchase.

Baby Revolver: This is Revolver’s baby sister, situated on Jalan Petitenget. If you think you’ve been to a tiny cafe, think again. Baby Revolver has room for about 6 people, but it is adorable and the baristas are always lovely. If you’re a Bonsoy fan, these guys have you covered.

Expat Roasters: The café is tiny but really sophisticated and sleek. When you order a flat white, the barista will pour the latte art right in front of your eyes!

CANGGU

Hungry Bird: The owner of Hungry Bird, a Javanese barista, is extremely knowledgeable on coffee and selects beans from all over Indonesia to roast in-house.

Cafe Vèda: This espresso bar became popular as soon as it opened. If you need a coffee hit late at night, this is the place to go! Cafe Vèda is open from dawn to (literal) dusk.
