Tempatnya tidak terlalu besar tapi mudah ditemukan krn persis di samping jalan besar. Pertama kesini janjian sama temen dan kebetulan bawa mobil krn emang lg ujan, sempet bingung mo parkir dmn krn gak ada tempat buat parkir mobil 😅tapi ternyata pengunjung yg bawa mobil akan otomatis diparkirin sama petugas nya di aera perumahan dekat situ dan gak ada tarif vallet nya jd suka rela. Untuk menu banyak kopi nya, mereka punya menu breakfast sampai dinner klo gak salah. Harga ya setara klo jajan daerah seminyak lah. Hot chocolate nya enak bgt. Espresso nya juga Ok kata temen. Staff pun ramah.

I arrived at Pison at the worst time possible. It was 8 pm on a high-season Saturday and the place was completely full. I had to wait 10 minutes for a half-decent outdoor spot (I had to twist and duck down a bit every time somebody opened the door), and I was considered lucky as some had to wait 30 minutes just for an outdoor stool. A peak on the interior revealed a dungeon-style design with vintage vibes, composing of exposed bricks, dark wooden tables and stools, and hanging tungsten bulbs. In the center, there was a staircase that lead to a second floor. I was sat on a tiny outdoor area, which was well-decorated all the same, a barrier separating us from the parking area designed to look like prison bars, with the functional chains and ropes incidentally looking like additional decor. Inside, a jazz-pop band was chiming out song covers, creating a lively ambience. The coffee: Piccolo (IDR 38k) Their house blend was kept secret from curious enthusiasts, but I discovered that they were roasted by Jakarta-based Giyanti coffee and was 100% arabica. The piccolo was based of the traditional single ris and served in a 6 oz demitasse. The first thing I noticed was just how dark the drink looked. The initial sip revealed an empowering sense of bitterness, followed by rich dark chocolate overtones and medium acidity. With time, the bitterness died down, the sweetness developed, and the acidity became more apparent - it became more mellow and balanced with slight cooling. To me, it was a fantastic cup - a very rollercoaster-y kind of cup. The service: Having come at rush-hour period, I observed how the staff performed under pressure. Some were notably overwhelmed by the task of asking newcomers if they made prior reservations, ushering them to their tables, keeping track of the waiting list, and sometimes appearing somewhat rude to the customers - I especially discerned a bias towards international tourists, whom the staff appeared more friendly to. As much human as they are to me, I strongly believe that professionals in the industry should not carry out their duty in such a fashion. Something else that I might classify as frivolous, this was the first time in my experience as a reviewer that a café rejected my request for a glass of warm water from the espresso machine - and insisted I buy their bottled water. I get that businesses are naturally built to maximize profit, but I thought this was an impertinent move. To put it into perspective, all high-traffic coffee shops with an espresso machine have their own water purifying system that transforms tap water into pure, drinkable water, mostly for brewing purposes, at a cost of almost 0, if we’re talking about one glass of water. Ironically, I found that small trivialities as such are very annoying, grossly downgrading their service. A kind note for the management of Pison, I hope that this would be resolved in the future. Verdict: Without a doubt, the coffee at Pison is exceptional - gorgeous cupping, vibrant vibes, and an overall thrill to drink. The place is also well designed and decorated, creating a unique, one-of-a-kind ambience. But drinks and atmosphere aside, the management and service team are lacking manners and principles that I think demoted the whole customer experience in the café.

Banyak yang bilang coffee disini enak, langsung deh melipir kesini pas di bali. Tempatnya cukup cozy, interiornya dominan kayu tapi ambiencenya seperti coffee shop di jakarta sih, ga ada nuansa balinya. Servicenya sangat bagus harganya cukup terjangkau. Menunya cukup bervariasi dari mulai breakfast, lunch dan dinner. Gw pesen beberapa menu yaitu : - sop buntut : sop buntutnya enak, dagingnya empuk, kuahnya gurih! - nasi goreng pork belly : ini eenak juga nasi gorengnya gurih, pork bellynya crunchy. - corn fritter steak : gw expect tinggi sih ke corn fritter ini tapi sayangnya ga sesuai dengan taste gw. corn fritternya bland dan ada saucenya entah avocado or apa jadi seperti agak asam. - pancake : pancakenya cukup moist, penampilannya ok tapi satang rasanya kurang pas, agak pahit. - avocado espresso : avocado juice dengan campuran espresso shot dan ice cream vanila, enak banget suerr. Coffenya cukup strong ditambah avocadonya yang fresh - hot & ice chocolate : enak baanget parahh, milk chocolate tapi tidak terlalu manis banget. Top - piccolo : enak banget coffeenya, cukup strong tapi after taste tidak asam dan pahit di lidah. Ga heran ternyata biji coffeenya dari giyanti di jakarta. Rasanya mirip banget dengan giyanti. - mocha nutela coffee : this is the best! Rasa mochanya cukup terasa tapi coffeenya masi lebih dominan ditambah ada campuran nutela dikit. TOP! Overall minuman disini semuanya enak, bener2 TOP. Untuk makanannya juga enak tapi ada beberapa makanan yang masih perlu diimprove.
