Here's the Grind: Coffee Cartel, Seminyak


Welcome to the two-story chic and modernized cafe with some cool and collected vibes. When it comes to Bali, you truly are in the wonderland of creative, cozy, and vintage cafes all spread across the island – Coffee Cartel being one of them.

Here's the Grind:

Where: Seminyak, Bali
What: Dirty Coconut - espresso + coconut water
What’s playing:  “Running Back to You" - The Juan MacLean

The two-story coffee shop is a great place to get some work done or even have a private lunch date on the second floor. With gluten-free and vegan-friendly option, it's the perfect place to kick back and relax on some cushioned pillows away from the busyness of the Seminyak shopping malls.

I wanted to explore beyond my soy latte and came across the "Dirty Coconut."

"Hey, a tropical Americano!" I thought. Time for bolder adventures.

Well, it was bold, alright! Way stronger and bitter for my taste and I've had my fair share of Americanos, but was refreshingly different from what I was used to on my coffee roundabouts.

It got the work done and maybe I threw in some sugar in there too. Maybe.
