Your sleepy eyes slowly open, your are comfortable. That feeling you get when waking up in a warm cosy bed hasn’t left your mind yet. A breeze flows through your hair as you take your first sip of hot coffee. It warms you up inside and leaves you speechless for a second as you enjoy that first sip full of flavour. For me, this is a moment of pure happiness.
Since I moved to Canggu in Bali I have been looking for the perfect cup of coffee to create these moments of happiness every morning. After many cups in many different cafes I have finally found the cafe that never lets me down and always leaves me in my coffee dreamland.
Welcome to Satu Satu, my little piece of coffee heaven.
Satu Satu is a cute cafe in which you feel cosy the moment you walk in. The smell of freshly baked croissants and grounded coffee fills the air. Apart for the coffee I also absolutely love going for breakfast here. My two favourite meals are the ‘Banana chia jug’ (40k Idr/ 2.10 pounds) and the ‘Satu Satu style porridge’ (40k Idr/ 2.10 pounds).
Both meals are the ultimate breakfasts to have on any day. Full of delicious goodness to keep you energised! The ‘Banana Chia Jug’ is made with a papaya smoothie, banana, chia seeds and topped with coconut and granola. Its fresh, healthy and delicious!
The ‘Satu Satu style porridge’ is made from oatmeal, quinoa, chia seeds, banana and coconut milk topped with fresh fruit, granola and served with caramelised banana. Honestly every spoonful is an explosion of flavours. Its also an extremely healthy start of the day and this meal will keep you energised and full throughout the morning.
Now, about their coffee. At Satu Satu they make their own coconut milk which is absolutely delicious. I found that many cafes in Canggu use a very oily coconut milk, which I am not a fan off. It overpowers the coffee taste and leaves an oily after taste. However, when coconut milk is home-made it usually is amazing. Perfect for a cappuccino! If you are a coffee lover like I am then you will be happy to hear that they offer 3 different cup sizes here – small, medium and LARGE! (For those Monday mornings)
My regular is a large cappuccino with coconut milk and it fulfils my coffee dreams every time! The coffee itself is full of flavour. Its rich and smooth. Its not bitter but has a little sweet after taste. Unlike usual Bali coffee its not watery at all and actually has rather strong flavours. Mix it with some milk, especially their freshly home-made coconut milk and you have yourself a match made in heaven!
I definitely recommend you to visit Satu Satu for breakfast, lunch or go by for a snack and a coffee!
Satu Satu is open everyday from 8am – 4.30pm.
They are located on Jl. Pantai Berawa No.31, Canggu, Bali.
