Originally, our plan was to continue our journey even north, to Bedugul or perhaps Singaraja. But nature directed us to a different path.
As we arrived in Ubud, drizzling rain soaked our clothes without stopping. So we decided to pull over in a cafe while enjoying the rain.
The cafe was Seniman Coffee Studio. Seniman is Bahasa for artist.
It was a cafe with an interesting concept to me. It was very different from the typical cafe that I usually went to in Denpasar, Kuta, or Seminyak. It was modest yet grand in a way.
They grilled their own coffee beans. They opened classes for people who wanted to learn how to process cofee beans. They used recycled objects as cups, plates, ornaments, and almost all parts of their cafe. They divided their tables not based on specific groups, but share even with strangers. We ourselves shared a table with some foreigners.
I enjoyed our 2 hours there. I enjoyed the company of my husband and his friends, the brisk rain, and everything else. I had a very great time.
