Roasting the coffee beans is one of the most important factors that affects the taste of a cup of coffee as the right temperature turns raw beans into a distinctively aromatic, flavorful and dark brown coffee beans that we recognize. In Coffee Culture Roastery, they put emphasis in customized roasting to achieve the desired flavor of coffee. Most of their beans are locally sourced which is a big help to the local farmers. They also import beans internationally to provide a variety of selections for their coffee but their local blends provides the most interest for both tourists and locals. Their little shop sells packs of their very own roasted coffees but you can also sit down and relax at their place to enjoy a freshly brewed coffee together with a delectable local pastries which is also served in their store in a Balinese inspired setting. For the coffeeholics, you need not search far to experience a genuine roasted cup of coffee with the taste of our own local resources.
We went there early this year and we found the shop located along the street of Alijis Rd., although it looks quite inconspicuous at first glance, the shop provides a cozy and relaxed atmosphere inside. Their receiving area accommodates a minimal number of guests where they proudly display the two big roaster machines on the side and extended at the back to an outdoor seating area which was lined with ornamental bamboo plants. For our first coffee experience at their shop, we tried their espresso macchiato, black americano and hot chocolate together with ensaymada and banana cake. We were the first visitors of the day as it was still early and there was still the pandemic going on. We asked two of the staffs who were on duty if we could take pictures of their shop and they gladly gave us permission to do so, one of them even suggested that we should have taken a video while our drinks were being prepared. We greatly appreciate that they served us a free cup of latte in order to show us how it is done and even though we we would like to pay for the drink, they insisted otherwise. We highly recommend this shop, not only for their coffee but also the place and the staff who are well-trained and amicable.
Overall, we rate our coffee experience along with the food and service with a perfect 5/5.
