Starbucks Dewata Detail



The store’s façade is created with locally created red bricks in the shape of half circles to create the illusion of the many waves found on Bali’s famous beaches.

The exterior appears to move to passersby on Sunset Boulevard as they drive past the storefront, and combines modern building techniques with traditional Balinese architecture for an east-meets-west design.

The design is carried into the interior of the store at the core bar where baristas handcraft favorite Starbucks beverages.



Upon entering the space, customers are invited into a micro-plot of Arabica coffee trees.

This 1,000 sq. ft. plot will be a working, coffee producing farm cherrying during harvest season in the region, typically in the early springtime, and mirrors the size of 90% of all coffee farms in Indonesia.


90% of coffee from Indonesia is grown on small backyard farms (one hectare/2.47 acres or less 7 Zoetrope Spins As the zoetrope spins, visitors can peek inside and see the growth process of coffee tree. Interactive and participatory, the Zoetrope installation uses natural/synthetic rattan, and up-cycling material. It also features traditional Balinese carving (panel) to cover the Zoetrope.



Peek inside the zoetrope, animation devices that spin to give the illusion of motion images, to watch images of coffee seedlings mature into lush, cherrying trees.

These interactive devices are made from natural and synthetic palm stems, or rattan, and up-cycled materials, covered in a traditional Balinese carving.



As customers enter the café, their eyes are immediately drawn to the 30-foot tall hand-carved wooden mural from Jepara, reaching from the first floor to the roof over the second story.

The engraving features a depiction of the history of coffee in Indonesia, including images of the well-known coffee growing regions of Java, Sulawesi, Bali, West Papua, Brastagi and North Sumatra, home to Starbucks Indonesia Farmer Support Center.



To the left of the entrance, customers are invited to Starbucks core bar featuring a living wall filled with flora from the region.

The botanicals are arranged in the form of Bali’s signature gapura, split gates, a symbol to welcome guests into our stores. This living wall is set back behind the bar where Starbucks partners will enter the café to connect with customers and handcraft their favorite Starbucks beverages.



Around the store, customers will be enchanted by the surrounding flora, bringing the lush Indonesian environment inside. Trees throughout the space are planted in beautiful clay pots inspired by a traditional Sumatran pattern and the Starbucks Siren. Motifs of Indonesia’s mountainous terrain and coffee beans remind customers of the unique surroundings found only in Indonesia.



On the second floor, customers are invited into the first coffee seedling nursery to be located inside of a Starbucks store.

Our partners work with local farmers to take special care of these seedlings and invite customers to help tend to the delicate plants. Inside this greenhouse, customers can touch the first stages of the seed-to-cup journey that brings us our favorite coffee flavors around the world.



The experience continues throughout the expansive space where customers can find two interactive media installations to further immerse themselves in the coffee journey.

On the first floor, a first-of-its-kind digital wall can be accessed through pressing and twisting various portions of the wall to participate in the planting, processing, roasting, shipping and brewing processed.

Above them, customers can hear the stories of Starbucks Farmer Support Center in Indonesia. Two synchronized videos guide visitors through the FSC on walls fashioned from the traditional rattan weavings which inspired the Dewata Bali logo.
