Starbucks Reserve Dewata
It’s Southeast Asia’s biggest Starbucks destination — 20,000 square feet of space dedicated to all things coffee. There’s a model arabica coffee farm, a slick brew bar stocked with fancy-looking pour-overs and presses, and a themed video wall with enough nobs, buttons, and levers to keep a five-year old happy. And that’s just the ground floor.
Inside, the teak brew bar has been cleverly carved out to look like the famous rice fields of Jatiluwih. A vast wooden relief, apparently hand-carved by artisans in Jepara, Java, climbs some 30 foot up the wall behind. It fits the theme flawlessly, showing the traditional, everyday lives of Indonesian coffee farmers and would have likely earned those old craftsmen a good few rupiah.
