They even distribute their beans to numerous places in Bali so you can get Revolver when you’re travelling around.

Open brick wall, hand painting mural, stack of books on one side and vintage decorations on the other, this industrial themed coffee shop is one of the well-known coffee shops in Seminyak—if not the most. Aside from their excellent coffee and splendid foods, in our opinion, Pison Coffee has one of the coolest music playlists to accompany your time. It’s fair to say that Pison Coffee is the perfect sanctuary in the middle of crowded (and most of the time insanely hot) Petitenget.

Their initial goal was simple; to serve great coffee in a place that promoted friendship and collaboration with the community. Started as family-run shop in Jakarta, it only took less than a year for their head barista to receive first place at the Indonesian Barista Championship and became the first Indonesian representative to compete in the World Barista Championships. The name itself derived from a well-known coffee-to-water ratio that yields an ideal cup.
