The attention to detail encompasses you the minute you set your bare feet inside…
Welcome to Seniman Coffee , founded in 2010, it’s Ubud’s go-to for aficionado’s and curious palettes alike. They believe there is a revolution in coffee and Seniman conducts themselves accordingly — “World- class design meets world-class coffee.”
“We have the DNA of design in us. It’s not just about the coffee, it’s down to the music, the ambience, the seating, the presentation, the glassware, the table you’re sitting at, the chair, the staff wearing Charlie Chaplin hats. The details culminate in an experience that is unique. That excites me and helps me to get up in the morning”
— David Sullivan, co- founder, courtesy of Ubudnownandthen.com
Seniman has access to unique and special crops of beans in Indonesia but they carry curated selections of “Single origin” coffee beans from South and central America and Africa too.
Each coffee is hand brewed to order and there’s some difficult choices to be made — for the unfamiliar, the menus come with flavour maps built in. You’ll never be left to stumble through your “Flat Black” order, while you franticly try to remember the expertise you swear you captured when you glimpsed at Barista Magazine, that one time, at Starbucks.
Welcome to the world of artisan coffee. If you’re a real coffee nerd or just curious, you can learn from the experts and take a workshop — the history, growing and methods of brewing or tour a local farm, like Kintamani. It’s more than worthwhile.
Short on time? (or attention span) you can hang out at the “Micro-Roastery” across from the cafe and watch their head Barista, Dea, roast and prepare these badass beans. (they also serve a selection of beer and grilled goods in the evenings)
