Cafes in Banda Aceh are popular among young people as a meeting place for talking and fellowship.
Coffee shops in Banda Aceh have had a long tradition history, passed down from generation to the generation. It is known as the city of a thousand coffee shops.
I was privileged to be given the opportunity to visit Banda Aceh, and did not want to miss the experience of drinking a cup of traditional Banda Aceh coffee. I decided to try the coffee at the NA Coffee Premium shop, but since I am no coffee connoisseur, I cannot give a valid judgment of its taste. However, the cafe was well-designed and had a wonderful ambience that compelled me to appreciate the coffee and made me feel glad to spend some time there.
I also noticed that there are not only coffee shops, but also other beverage shops at every corner of the city.
The coffee grown in Aceh has a distinct, rich flavor I have not tasted elsewhere. An owner of the NA Coffee Premium shop, whose name I cannot remember, told me that the popular coffee varieties in Banda Aceh are Arabica and Robusta.
Arabica coffee beans require specific climates and must grow in cool, subtropical regions. The plants also need a lot of moisture, rich soil, and partial shade.
Robusta coffee beans come from resilient plants that can be grown at lower altitudes.
Coffee Shopsin Banda Aceh are the best way to experience the locally made coffee and access the Internet while doing so.
Coffee is one of the most popular beverages among young people in Banda Aceh, and first-time customers often find themselves coming back for more. Young people sit in cafes located at the heart of the city, which are good spots to watch people passing by, especially at night when it is most lively. They are also good places to meet and greet friends and talk about life in Banda Aceh.
Homegrown coffee beans are available for purchase and they might just make you forget about visiting popular coffee chains like Starbucks.
