There’s nothing quite like starting your day with a good cup of coffee. On our first morning that we woke up in Bali, we ventured across the pool area to the thatched-roof restaurant area to see how much our morning cup of goodness would cost us. We couldn’t have been happier when we found out that the “Bali Coffee” was free. Free coffee, unlimited, all day long. It was like music to our ears. When they brought our cups of coffee – served in short glasses, with brown sugar and milk on the side – we were surprised at just how strong this Bali coffee was. In fact, after two of these we are ready to face anything.
We had to double up on the milk that they gave for coffee cup of coffee. Day after day, they didn’t seem to understand that we simply couldn’t drink our coffees without a good amount of milk added. The servers always brought us a small jug of milk to share. Even with the milk added, the coffee always had a thick black layer of undissolved reside at the bottom of it. Random point – I have since learnt that these are called “coffee dregs” (Those little grains of tea or coffee left at the bottom of the cup are known as the dregs. The dregs are the least wanted portion, or the residue.) Have a look at the dregs left from our Bali coffee…
I am not sure what it was about that Bali coffee, but we just wanted to keep drinking it all day. We felt a little loopy after 2-3 cups so we had to make mental notes to separate our cups of the coffees by a few hours.
Just another thing we loved about Indonesia – the Bali coffee!
Speaking of coffee from Bali. While on Bali, we had the opportunity to try coffee made from coffee beans that had been eaten by a Luwak (a cat-like creature). Eaten and then pooped out, I should say! Yup, we drank poop coffee. Haha, sounds just like something we would try,isn’t it? More on that in another post.
