The Wonders of Bali Coffee: Your Local Guide

Discovering Bali’s coffee scene is a delicious adventure that covers a wide collection of specialty roasters and independent growers, making each cup a delight for the tastebuds. 

Due to Bali’s relatively stable climate, it hosts ideal conditions for coffee production all year round. Equally, Bali has reclaimed its privileged position as a coffee-growing region, which can certainly be seen in the growth of Bali’s thriving and social coffee scene in recent years. Whether you enjoy a warm or icy brew, join us as we take you on a journey through some of the best local coffee in Bali.

Suka Espresso, Uluwatu

Located close to Padang Padang beach, you’ll find Suka Espresso, a delightful cafe offering open-air dining in a laid back setting. Recognised as one of the most well-known cafes in the area, it was originally established from the belief that there just wasn’t enough good coffee in Uluwatu. Suka set out to create a vibrant, Australian style cafe with “fresh food and good vibes”, which they’ve certainly achieved. Now with two locations in Bali, their coffee beans pack a punch, sourced in small batches from Indonesia and South America. Best enjoyed alongside one of their scrumptious brunch items, Suka Espresso is a morning must before spending a day at the beach.

Hungry Bird, Canggu

This Canggu born coffee roastery delivers delicious coffee with humble origins, since being established in 2013. Indonesian founder, Edo, started Hungry Bird from a 7 by 5 metre space just two doors down from his office where he worked in IT. With a second-hand espresso machine, his small team would run back and forth from his office, catering to the hungry surfers and the Canggu community. Edo taught himself all there is to know about specialty coffee, which resulted in the opening of a larger location, awards won and Hungry Bird growing into a wholesaler for many cafes and bars in Bali.
