“These people know their coffee”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

As we're opening a cafe in Sydney we booked to do a coffee course with the 'Coffee master' here to learn about manual coffee making methods. the knowledge these guys have in indescribable. Not only the coffee master (Rodney) but the barista helped out too and we felt like we learnt so much. A course like this would never be available in Sydney so we were very lucky to find it. needless to say, if you're a coffee lover then you simply must pay this place a visit! The food is good and the atmosphere in the place made me feel like i was in a coffee shop in Amsterdam, just so laid back and chilled with people from all over sitting at communal tables and chatting away.

“Tried double espresso.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I tried double espresso in here on my trip to Ubud. It was so-so. Ice latte which was served for my GF... was not bad, but I think their blend is not much as I expected... I liked Revolver in Seminyak much better.

hmmm, being a roaster and specialty coffee master to hear you only thought our espresso was 'so-so' is a bit of a blow. especially when compared to another shop i know well (and know who roasts for them too....)
all i can say is come back and ask to speak to the owner and try some espresso shots together.
pretty sure you will change your opinion just by your tastebuds alone.. look forward to seeing you soon. thanks

“A welcome place to chill out and enjoy your coffee”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Coffee is king here and it is therfore treated like royalty. It is prepared in a labrotory fashion- the sources are well documented- and it is delicious. The patrons are all about the wifi and the decor is all about being spot on recycled, mid century modern/ casual perfect.
pesonally- I was won over by their very clean and yet soulful interpretations of the local food.
The iced coffee is also a life saver in the middle of a hot day tromping about Ubud. I enjoyed the wifi a bit myself- and if at times I thought this place was a bit silly with pretention I also enjoyed some extreme westernism in the midsts of my hot and adventerous days. Coming from Brooklyn it felt like Blue Bottle where you took your flip flops off at the door..... a very welcoming space over all.

“Something different in Ubud”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

It's different than other coffee shops in terms of decor, atmosphere or culture as you have to take off your shoes to enter. Also, you drink out of recycled sterilized cans as opposed to the usual coffee cup so the visit was interesting and unique. Also instead of the regular cookies or biscuits to go with the coffee, they served little Balinese cakes. The coffee is made and brewed right in front of you. We came in a large group with children and some being coffee addict, we found the place to be good, again unique in its own style. My husband being a cafe latte fan said their cafe latte was just normal, nothing profoundly amazing about it. Some of their mixed juice is good too. All in all we enjoyed the atmosphere. But smokers mixed in with nonsmokers and for kids, it's definitely not the best place to hang out for a long time.

I actually like their concept of recycling cans and bottles as a part of Bali's going green program.
