Lately it’s getting much easier to find good coffee shops in Bali, a fact that makes my coffee addicted heart truly happy. After a shopping tour in Seminyak, me and my girlfriends went to Anomali, a Jakarta based coffee house chain in Oberoi.
To my great delight they use Indonesian coffee beans only, in my opinion the best in the world.
They offer the sorts Jawa, Toraja, Bali Kintamani, Papua Wamena and a few more what in combination with high quality grinders and coffee machines leads to a delicious cup of the brown gold. You can choose from the classics (Espresso, Cappuccino, Macchiato…) in hot or iced or ad flavored syrup. They also offer a large selection of tarts and cookies to enjoy with your drink.
The interior of the shop is very special with an industrial charm. What looks like an old factory hall with concrete walls offers many cozy corners to sit and a lot of little details to look at. The mix of concrete, natural fabrics, wood and art creates a special and creative ambience that I really enjoyed.
I ordered a large iced Cappuccino for drink and the lemon tart. The coffee was very aromatic and delicious with a very intense flavor. The lemon tart was a bit too sweet for my taste, but for the coffee I’ll be back for sure.
If you’re looking for a coffee place that’s not Starbuck’s but offers tasty coffee and a nice atmosphere you may like Anomali and should give it a try. For info about coffee beans and machines you can visit their website, they also offer coffee classes on different levels.
