With a third wave of coffee sweeping across Asia over the last decade, we wanted to share the very best spots for coffee in Bali that you simply can’t miss out on.
We focus for the most part on small independent coffee shops who go above and beyond to bring new flavours and techniques to their local communities. The businesses and people who are super passionate about coffee, in terms of how they source, roast and serve it.

This coffee haven takes things to another level: Seniman is a green bean processor, coffee exporter, roaster, designer, maker, explorer, and proudly based in Indonesia. The boutique cafe roasts all their own beans on site, so every brew here tastes incredible.

Kynd Community is a popular cafe in Bali that you’ve more than likely seen all over your Instagram already – those smoothie bowls are some of the prettiest we’ve ever seen. Their coffee menu is actually even better; try their homemade plant milks such as creamy coconut or date and almond.
This Australian coffee spot opened in April 2014, bringing excellent cuppas to Cangguu. It’s a funky place with wooden pallets, the menu painted straight onto the walls and a trendy clientele.
The coffee stands out as being some of the best coffee in Bali, and yes, the flat white is as good as you would expect.
