Do you know where the biggest Starbucks outlet is in Southeast Asia? Apparently not in Jakarta, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. But on Sunset Road, Bali! Yes, the Seattle-based company opened a unique store called Starbucks Coffee Sanctuary or Starbucks Reserve Dewata. This outlet was designed as a tribute to the important role of Indonesia, the fourth largest Arabica coffee producing country in the world. Starbucks itself has used Sumatra coffee on Starbucks drinks list since 1971, followed by other coffees from various places in Indonesia. Not just drinking coffee, visitors can also learn how coffee beans are processed starting from sorting, roasting, to serving. Starbucks Reserve Dewata is promised to be the single most unique coffee outlet out of 24 thousand in various parts of the world, as well as being the second largest in the world.
Let me not be curious, let’s take a peek at the cool portrait of Starbucks, located on Jalan Sunset Road, Number 77, Seminyak, Kuta, Bali.
