In Bahasa Indonesia, “seniman” means “artist”—seems appropriate as Seniman Coffee Studio has completely turned coffee into an art form. Beans from various plantations around Indonesia are roasted in-house, and each cup is expertly prepared by hand. Whether you choose to have your brew hand-pulled or poured through a siphon, you’re bound to receive an excellent blend. Every serving even comes with a glass of water and a small Balinese treat, presented on a stylish wooden paddle.
The studio conducts tasting workshops twice a week, where you get to learn how to make the perfect espresso, as well as the basics of latte and milk art. They also have a shop dedicated to all sorts of coffee equipment. Scour their collection, and practice your newfound skill at home!
Common Man Coffee Roasters prides itself on a reputation for exceptional coffee, with beans sustainably sourced from quality producers around the globe. Their signature blends are prepared through a custom Synesso espresso machine, while the selection of filter coffee served in-house comes from single origins and micro-lots from Ethiopia. If you like to take your caffeine fix up a notch, there’s also the CMCR Academy where they teach a range of courses from fundamental barista skills to advanced latte art!
Western cuisine dominates at Common Man Coffee Roasters. Enjoy an all-day brunch menu of eggs benedict, brioche toasts, and the like; and coffee sourced from farmers around the world! Built on a partnership between Harry Grover of Forty Hands (Singapore’s third-wave coffee pioneer), Australian coffee roaster Five Senses, and the Spa Esprit Group, Common Man Coffee Roasters transcends your typical coffee shop. It’s also a roastery, academy, and wholesale coffee bean shop.
