Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow! So glad we stopped here! If you are feeling deprived of an exceptional coffee experience, visit Paksi Coffee and your faith will be restored. Being discriminating coffee devotees, we are not easily impressed, but we had two different wonderful coffees on our visit that...were the best we’ve tasted in Java so far. There is nothing better than a perfect cup of coffee, lovingly made, and this was enhanced by the enjoyable company and conversation with the owner, Maya. Sharing thoughts, artistic vision, and philosophies with a kindred spirit made this an ideal moment in our coffee history.More

Best coffee in Borobudur. You can choose for a wide variety of coffee beans. After that you get a french press which gives you 2 cups of good coffee. This is a great spot to just relax, hang around and enjoy some silence for when...you're done with all the tourists :DMore

We went to Paksi Coffee for a drink before heading to Borobudur. The lady who runs the cafe was very accommodating, and explained where the different coffees were from and what sort of flavour we could expect of each of them. She also offers chocolate...drinks, tea and juice. We all enjoyed our selections, so much so that we returned after our trek up and down the ancient steps of the temple and through the labrynthine market for round two. The lady of the house is also responsible for the wonderful oil paintings and butterfly strewn branches around the edges of each room. The cafe has beautiful ambience. Head here if you need a place to relax admist the Borobudur tourist hustle and bustle.More

After cycling around the Borobudor area, we got pretty thirsty and it started to rain just as we were passing Paksi coffee house. To seek shelter and rehydrate, we popped in for a quick drink. The owner, who runs this place on her own, was...not only extremely friendly, but had so much knowledge of coffee, it was amazing. We ended up spending hours talking with her, trying different beans from different parts of Indonesia. Indonesia has some of the best coffee in the world, but many places don't do the great beans justice, usually adding tonnes of sugar or condensed milk, even if you ask them not to. Not at Paski. They make a proper brew with proper beans, and let you decide how you want to drink it!More

I just got back from a morning walk in Borobudur temple and passing this homey coffee house on the way back to the hotel. Since the door was opened, I thought it was already opened. Then the lady who owns this place greeted us and...saying that today they're not opened. And she opened the door bcoz she has friends coming over. I was so disappointed. All I want that morning is a good coffee after my long morning trip. But then I think she saw my sad face and finally she agreed to serve us coffee. I cant imagine how happy I was that time, like a lil girl getting a cotton candy. So anyhow, she invited me to come the coffee house to choose which kind of coffee I would like. She has many options of Indonesian coffee beans. And then she explained the specialities & character of each coffee. I finally decided Toraja coffee to be the chosen one. After a while my coffee brewed and served in french press style. The chocolate and sweet scent was to die for! And after a sip, I got blown away. It was ah-mazing!! I usually dont really drink black coffee, I usually add milk in my coffee. But this one was exceptional. I think that was the best black coffee I have ever had in life. The lady who owns this place was also very nice, we had a chat a while. And she is so polite, the genuine hospitality. Before we left she also brought us fried banana with cheese topping for free. She said she has extra after serving for her friends inside the house. I will definitely come back here when I am around. This place is very recommended for the coffee and the service. Thank you Ibu for having us!!More

I have been to Bali many times and had this growing unease that I have not really seen or spent much time in the rest of Indonesia. I decided it was time to fix this so booked a few nights after Bali in Borobudur and...Yogyakarta. I booked into Paksi and asked that she arrange a pick up for me from the airport. Pick up worked well, and then I arrived at Paksi. The room is great, comfortable, simple, but full of personality. Maya's personality. She is wonderful. Friendly, generous, accommodating and just a pleasure to be around. The room is great, comfortable and quiet ( although bring earplugs for the call to prayer at 4:30am) and has everything you need. The location is excellent, it is literally a 5 min walk from the temple, if you are doing a sunrise visit this is the place to be. ( Others will be paying 3 times the rate to be staying at the hotel in the park for the same privilige) Maya was generous with her time and took me for a meal to a local warung ( which was so delicious) and that night as it happened there was a local festival on, she invited me to accompany her. I had such a good time and felt very special. The next day post sunrise at the temple we had arranged a tour and Maya came along ( shutting the cafe) and I had the pleasure of her company for the day. If meeting people and having the chance to get to know them is something you enjoy then come and stay here. I got way, way more than just a room when I stayed at Paksi. Book a tour with Wando as well, Maya's sidekick of sorts, he will look after you... Thank you Paksi, I will come back.....More
