Jakarta Meets Bali: Buro x Common Grounds x Livingstone

Have you noticed how more and more people are into coffee these days? Artisan coffee shops open, normal people study their way to become baristas and tea addicts root for manual brew. Jakarta, Surabaya and now Bali have definitely picked up the trend quickly and it doesn’t look like stopping anytime soon.

Now it is no longer rare to hear your colleagues in Jakarta spending their breaks and meetings at Tanamera, Common Grounds, Giyanti or even Koultoura. They source their coffee from the ends of the world, join in around-the-world sabbatical coffee trips, send the crews to competitions, making up their names on the coffee-sphere, and suddenly the green lady coffee is in a tight competition, first after so many successful years of opening a store after another every other weekend.

For Bali, here I am, sharing up a good fantastic news! Common Grounds is coming to Bali in a collaboration format. Oh how I love that word. And they’re coming in full throttle.

By full throttle I meant, they don’t play play. Yoshua Tanu, the Indonesian Barista Champion in 2014 and Johni, the reigning Indonesian Latte Art Champion since 2014, both are the guys behind the successful Jakarta-based Common Grounds, will take over and caffeinate Seminyak, North Kuta, in a fashion. Buro plays host and Livingstone Cafe plays venue, I am indeed one happy guy. Buro sounds new to you? It does to me too! It claims itself as a shopping & retail place, with coffee shop (hence, Common Grounds, da!) and workplace & office. I am guessing it’s a social co-working hub with good coffee and vibes, which is what I’m always up for. About time to hit Bali. Let’s just wait and see.

This is all happening on Saturday, 25 April, from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday, 26 April, from 9 am to 3 pm. Head to Petitenget Street. When you find Metis on your left, go a bit further and voila, it’s the industrial looking Livingstone Cafe, just next to Kokonut Suites.

See you there?

For the love of (good) coffee,
