Revolver Espresso came across our little chit chat during our lunch at The Cafe at The Mulia, Bali. Diana mentioned it as the most popular coffee joint in Bali at the moment.
Since I don’t feel like I want to miss this famous coffee during my trip, Gaby and I went there for a brunch on Monday morning. Besides, the breakfast my hotel served was really awful. Even their coffee doesn’t taste like what coffee should be. So I decided to skip my breakfast at the hotel and went for a decent brunch instead.
Revolver Espresso was located in an alley in Seminyak (near the Seminyak Square) just exactly as their official facebook page says, “Revolver Espresso at Gang 51”. Gang means alley in Bahasa Indonesia. So… They’re telling you the truth.
I was like… how could a small coffee joint in an alley be so popular? We even lose our way and take another round to find this one. Even the door itself was written “Do not enter or you’ll get shot“, don’t you think?
I was surprise as I enter the room. The coffee smells so good and strong! That makes me think they have some kind of coffee perfume or something. But anyway, we also hardly find a table for us. It really is crowded for a small hidden coffee shop like this.
I found that Revolver Espresso actually only takes a small room behind a boutique and decorate it with vintage furnishings and stuffs, and Voila! It turns out to be so quirky for a coffee shop.
About the coffee…
Since I love Flat White so much, I always make sure I have one if there’s any. I was so glad that Revolver Espresso does serve Flat White as it’s kinda hard here in Indonesia to find a coffee shop which serve Flat White. Most will probably say “Do you mean latte? It’s actually the same.” or “We can make you a small latte. Is that what you mean by Flat White?”
And I would probably just answer : “Well, latte’s good. I’ll have one.” or “I’ll take black coffee instead, please.”
But actually for me, Flat White and Latte is two different things. I found that Latte is somehow milky… and has a layer of foam on top. While Flat White tasted like an even mix of milk and foam and espresso. They don’t have a thick layer of foam on top. And it tasted stronger. And of course, yummier. But again, I’m not a coffee expert. So it’s just based on my coffee drinking experience and observation.
And here’s the Flat White Revolver Espresso has offered. So smooth and strong!
Gaby had a cup of good cafe latte and it seems that she really enjoys it. She even ruined the latte art before I took a good picture of it.
We also had some breakfast meal.
Mine was The Revolver (45k) which is basically a sour dough with avocado, perfect pouch eggs, and homemade relish. Tasted so good! I really like how the sour dough smells like.
Gaby had something called KGB (45k). It’s a delicious grilled polenta, with sauteed mushrooms, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. And a sprinkle of freshly grin black pepper and salt and it’ll tasted like heaven.
It’s actually our first time eating this kind of breakfast. We didn’t even used to see such meals before. It somehow does look strange for us. And it’s a lil bit pricey too. But we enjoy our breakfast as much as we do.
Until next time! We’ll definitely come back for more good coffee! And I’m so gonna try their Long Black.
It might be tricky for you to find Revolver Espresso. So, the easiest way for you to do is to look out for Bali Clinic as it’s located just at the opposite of the clinic. And they also serve Lunch menu if you don’t feel like having breakfast.
