Whether your coffee-making routine involves a French press, V60, moka pot, or espresso machine — every brewing method requires fresh, good quality coffee to start with. And if you want the freshest, most pure-tasting cup possible, then that also means grinding your beans immediately before brewing.
So, if you’re into home brewing, then that likely means you’re into sourcing nice coffee beans, too. Here are our recommendations for high quality coffee produced by roasteries here in Indonesia, which you can order online.
Possibly the leading coffee franchise in Indonesia, Anomali is also known for roasting their own beans. Just like the cuppa you can order at their stores, Anomali’s beans are also on the really affordable side. You may find the popular Indonesian beans such as Aceh Gayo, Toraja, their house blend Black Pearl, and even Kopi Luwak (civet coffee) at their stores or online.
Anomali has 8 locations throughout Jakarta (including Soekarno-Hatta International Airport) with 5 other locations in Bali, Makasar, and Surabaya. Order beans, merchandise, and equipment here. Instagram
Their store might be small, but their popularity has increased tremendously among local coffee connoisseurs. Smoking Barrels offers Indonesian specialty coffee such as Careb Ruteng from Flores or Limau Cirago from West Sumatra, imported beans like Ethiopia’s Hunkute Organic, and five house blends you can choose from (our current favorite is the Cannon Blend). By the way — Smoking Barrels supplies beans to many popular coffee shops in the city, so you might have already tried their coffee without even knowing it.

This popular Yogyakarta-based roastery is known for their unusual single origins, amazing house blends, and eye-catching packaging. Coffee enthusiasts are usually pretty excited to see the popular Halu Pink Banana (we’ve tried brewing it with V60, and yes, we can vouch for the banana aroma) or Yirgacheffe Wild Flower. Check out their three house blends too, with different flavor notes and strength (we love the nutty Originutt). And, some extra sweet news: Space Roastery offers free shipping throughout Indonesia, too.
You can’t talk about Indonesia’s coffee scene without mentioning Giyanti Coffee. At their Menteng store, Giyanti rotates their beans quite often — some of the notable ones are North Sumatra’s Siraja Biak Biak, or Aceh’s Gayo Meriah Sengeda. Online, you may find several beans such as Papua Wamena, SiUlak Bujang from Jambi, or Colombian, offered by the premium specialty coffee roastery.
Established in 2013, Morph Coffee has been consistent in producing high quality coffee beans. The long-time supplier of the popular One Fifteenth Coffee, you may find their signature house blend alongside premium beans such as Java Taneuh Sunda Gulali, or Brazil’s Fazenda Dona Nenem.

If you’re around Cilandak or Cipete area in South Jakarta, make sure to check out Gerilya Coffee & Roastery. Their house blends are nothing sort of amazing, and they offer quality arabica coffee such as Lintong Hasundutan and robusta coffee like Bali Kemuning.
If you’re constantly on the look out for Jakarta’s latest best brunch places, then you’ve definitely heard about Common Grounds before. The coffee shop might be known more widely for its excellent brunch lineup, but coffee enthusiasts know that it’s also a great premium roastery. You can bring home a bag of their signature Cloak & Dagger blend, or their newest Major Tom blend, and single origins such as Toraja Sulotco and Gesha Village.
Yogyakarta’s coffee scene is now one of the most popular in the country. Klinik Kopi, however, has long since been a popular choice among Indonesian coffee connoisseurs, even before the popular romcom Ada Apa Dengan Cinta 2 shot some of its scenes there. Don’t look for espresso-based drinks at their store, though, because they only serve manual brew coffees using single origin beans. Note, they’re very popular and you’ll most likely have to take queue numbers prior to ordering. At the moment, Klinik Kopi only offers West Sumatra’s Padusi Solok and Ethiopia’s Guji Natural on its online shop.
