Through the Coffee Experience Centre, Starbucks aims to highlight how the roasting process enhances the distinctive quality and eclectic flavour characteristics of Indonesian coffees. Tucked within the expansive Starbucks Dewata complex, the Coffee Experience Center is the establishment’s latest extension which offers interactive experiences that recognises the seed-to-cup journey, combining coffee sourcing, roasting, brewing and serving for customers to discover in one destination.

Spanning over 140 sqm, the Coffee Experience Center features a design inspired by rich copper tones and traditional Balinese Besek baskets, crafted with the same materials used in the Coffee Sanctuary like the terracotta brickwork and terrazzo floors. In keeping with local inspiration, the interiors feature stained glass windows that depict Indonesian coffee farmers.
