Only he couldn't find it. He dropped me a good km or so from where I should have been, so again, I had to walk along in the heat asking the locals along the way where to go.

After about 40 minutes of driving he pulled over and asked if we wanted to come and have a look at his coffee house. He wasn't pushy like his mates in Kuta but just asked if we wanted to, but didn't have to. We said yes, as we bloody love coffee!
