Bali Pulina - A visit to the Most Expensive Coffee Plantation

Tripoto

During our stay at Bali, apart from the beaches and the mountains we made sure to explore the greenery offered by the city. One day of the stay was planned to the visit to Kopi Luwak Coffee Plantation near Ubud. We started our journey for the day from Seminyak and after visiting the Kintamani Volcanoes we headed out to the coffee plantation.

Some facts about Luwak Coffee:

Kopi Luwak is the coffee produced from coffee beans digested and excreted by Civet Cat(Luwak). The excreted beans are then collected, processed and roasted to prepare the coffee beans. The taste of this coffee is arguably considered to be the best because of the method by which it is prepared. The digestion of the coffee by the cat ensures that it reduces the bitterness and increases the smoothness of the coffee.

We understood the entire process of the coffee preparation from the lady who was roasting the beans there. Once done with the coffee process, it was time for us to taste some tea and coffee samples offered to us.The presentation was really good and we had a choice of 8 samples to choose from. I tried the ginger tea which was quite refreshing whereas Saumya preferred to have their coffee and lemon tea.

The site is covered with rice fields all around and gives a beautiful look to the entire area. They also had some placards to be used for photography purposes which added an extra zing to fun. While we got ourselves clicked, we also sat there for sometime to soak in the beauty of the nature around us.
