If you work remotely or just need to catch up on some emails, this cafe is a great place to sip on some coffee and get some work done. Freak Coffee is a favorite in Ubud for many locals and expats. Freak actually stands for “Fresh Roasted ‘Enak’ Arabica from Kintanami”. They source local organic arabica beans from a small plantation in the northeastern part of Bali, which makes for espresso that is served fresh to customers within 24 hours of roasting.
