We are coffee lovers!

If you are a coffee lover, this is the perfect place. Our tour was full of excitement because our next destination is a small Balinese coffee plantation. In this tour, you can learn about how the local coffees being made and tasting the most expensive coffee in the world (the Luwak coffee). Luwak coffee came from the poop of the palm civet. It is recommended by many tour operators to visit this coffee plantation in Bali.

You can find cocoa, coconut, or other tropical plants such as medicinal plants or herbs on this plantation. It’s pretty cool to see the coffee-making process from the raw materials until the final product. You can also see the beautiful landscape with a free cup of coffee from the plantation.

You can also buy some coffee packages from their store the prices depend on the flavor of the coffee, hot chocolates, herbal teas you like. But for us, we brought the Avocado coffee, and the taste is different because the ingredients are coconut milk, pandan, and coffee.
