Javaheads and latte-holics rejoice! We hunted down Bali’s best coffee spots for your daily caffeine hit – strong, locally-sourced, and everything in-between!

If the struggle is oh-so real to get through each day without your morning coffee fix, we hear you. But luckily for our fellow coffee-holics, Indonesia is home to some of the best beans around, and Bali is fast becoming Asia’s coffee capital, with straight-up strong espressos from award-winning baristas, to three-quarter double shot lattes with organic beans from Aceh. So, to help you curb your coffee cravings with a really good (and we mean REALLY good) caffeine hit, we’ve hunted down the very best coffee spots in Bali – the best brew bars and coffee-serving cafes across the island, from Seminyak and Ubud, to Canggu and Uluwatu. You’re welcome!


BGS Bali

Every day we thank the golden gods for the Almond Milk Latte at BGS

Word on the street is, BGS serves the best Almond Milk Latte on the island – and after knocking back hundreds (if not thousands) of these thick, creamy and vanilla-roasted cups of gold, we can confirm this big coffee claim. You won’t wanna just grab-and-go either, because BGS is also where you’ll find friendly faces in a community-driven space that also happens to sell all of your surf essentials, from boards and fins, to wax, tees and bikinis. Just don’t be surprised if you’re still propping up the bar ’til late, buzzing off their brilliant brews and discussing the morning’s surf report with locals, resident expats, and even their Bali dogs.
Psst – for more BGS brews, check out their flagship store in Uluwatu.
BGS Bali, Canggu: Jl Munduk Catu No.1 || Uluwatu: Jl Raya Uluwatu No77x || p. +62 878 6181 3103, e. Open daily 8am – 10pm. 

Ritual Coffee & Eatery

We love the cosy, work-friendly interiors of Ritual – and we love their coffee even more!

Epic coffee, a cosy work space and homemade brekkie and lunch dishes – Ritual Coffee & Eatery has become an all-day staple for a top-notch caffeine kick. Its uber-special blend of high quality beans from Sumatra, Flores, Bali and even Brazil have been specifically hand-picked for Ritual and roasted manually (not in bulk) – and the result is pretty darn spesh. With hints of almond, sugarcane and milk chocolate, Ritual’s coffee is best enjoyed with their signature Pancake Stack. And if you’re in the mood for an afternoon pick-me-up, they even serve an ice blended Liquor Frappe, with double espresso, a shot of Baileys and stracciatella ice cream. YUM.

Hungry Bird

Hungry Bird is the proof in the pudding that passion pays off

A temple of coffee enthusiasm, Hungry Bird is a real-life coffee fairytale. The owner, a young Indonesian guy called Edo, used to roast beans in his bedroom when he fixed – with his bare hands – a broken coffee machine that he bought online. Self-taught and quite literally self-made, he then opened Hungry Bird, previously a teeny tiny hole-in-the-wall style coffee shop. Eventually, it became uber-popular with the local surfers (the breakfasts were the most affordable around) with the coffee as the real kicker. Edo kept his clientele well-and-truly hooked with beans from all over Indonesia, and now, as one of the most popular spots in the ‘Gu, Hungry Bird sits in a proud new location right beside the shortcut, complete with its own micro-roaster and cupping room – a great reward for true passion.
Hungry Bird, Jl Raya Semat No. 86, Canggu, p. +62 898 6191 008. Open daily 8am – 5pm.

Ain’t no run-of-the-mill coffees at cool and creative RUKO Cafe

Because everyone knows that any hip Canggu resident wouldn’t be seen dead sipping on a conventional, run-of-the-mill brand, RUKO Cafe in Berawa custom-makes its own Indonesian blend for the perfect brew of strong, bittersweet magic. And the cups themselves are a work of art, too, artisan-made by a local ceramics artist. In fact, everything in this cool neighbourhood coffee shop screams creativity: the hip urban vibe, the sketch books with colouring pencils provided, murals on the walls (inside and outside), and a cool crowd that keeps you sticking around for one, two, or maybe even three more premium piccolos.
RUKO Cafe, Jl Pantai Berawa No. 99, Canggu, p. +62 8123 963 077. Open daily 7.30am – 4pm.

Satu-Satu Coffee Company

If Satu-Satu’s coffee is good enough for the Indonesian Government, it’s good enough for us too!

Satu-Satu in Berawa opened in honour of the Sudana family, who are well-known in Bali for producing some of the island’s finest quality coffee since 1985. They have family-owned coffee plantations in Lawak, Belok, Sidan, Petang and Badung, and have always focused on producing coffee the natural way. They use only traditional Balinese methods to ensure the highest level of organic coffee, and to guarantee superior freshness and flavour. In fact, the coffee here is so esteemed, the Government of Indonesia actually provided the Sudana family with machinery and equipment to help facilitate its growth and expansion, including the opening of Satu-Satu cafe in Berawa, where you can sip on these legendary, government-approved brews!
Satu-Satu Coffee Company, Jl Raya Pantai Berawa No. 36, Canggu, p. +62 878 6207 7011. Open daily 8am – 4.30pm. 

Bootstrap Cold Brew Coffee

Bootstrap is Bali’s cold brew trailblazer, now available in Singapore, too!

Apparently, cold brew is the fastest-growing coffee trend in the world, which suits us just fine considering Bali’s balmy climate. And there’s one island brewer that’s been one step ahead of the rest, because Bootstrap began brewing quality cold brew coffee in Bali back in 2014, and it’s so good, it’s now bottled up and sold to other top spots across the island – including Singapore, too. Using Kintamani Single Origin Arabica beans, the cold-brewed result is a low-acid, high-caffeine coffee that’s both smooth and refreshing. Not only that, it’s sugar-free, dairy-free, healthy and organic – because this is Canggu after all.
Bootstrap, Jl Tumbak Bayuh, Canggu – Mengwi, p. +62 361 9079 433. Open Mon – Sat 9am – 5pm.

Cafe Vida

This boutique espresso bar in Canggu is always positively pumping from dawn until dusk, filled with coffee aficionados and good-food fiends sipping on expert brews and wholesome bites throughout the day. Set within a traditional Balinese compound, with a cute tropical courtyard and the scent of great coffee all around, Cafe Vida specialises in sourcing quality, local and organic beans. They make their own blend of espresso coffee – locally roasted and brewed – alongside an Ethiopian Single Origin and Bulletproof’s espresso blend with grass-fed butter and raw coconut oil. Heck, they even have a whole list of herbal lattes for when you’re going caffeine-free, from healthy matcha and chai lattes, to the red velvet beetroot cacao latte. Delish.
Cafe Vida, Jl Pantai Batu Bolong No. 38A, Canggu, p. +62 813 3988 6864. Open daily 7am – 10.30pm.
