Caffeine addicts who have been to Bali would know that excellent coffee can be found in many coffee shops there. So it is unsurprising that we have found yet another cafe that has been building its reputation on great coffee—The Koop Roaster & Cafe.
No effort has been spared in sourcing for their own green Arabica coffee beans from the local farms in Bali and the baristas make it a point to roast their own coffee beans too. Do not be shy to spend on their specialty coffee and baked items such as Carrot Cake and Banana Bread.
Give this homey cafe a chance the next time you are looking for a place to chill and have a hearty breakfast in Seminyak. READ ON
