Bali Coffee Plantation is one of the new Bali Tourist Attractions that offers a great experience during your trips to Bali Island where you can try to taste the local Bali Coffee, Ginger Tea, and Luwak Coffee.

Bali Coffee Plantation is one of the most famous Bali Interest Places and offers a wonderful experience trip on your holiday on Bali Island. The local Balinese farmers are very creative to plant a variety of coffees but two species of coffees that are mostly planted on this island include Robusta and Arabica. The farmers are stepping into a new idea to create their coffee plantation as a tourist attraction where you may visit it with some coffee for free testing.

The famous and the most expensive coffee with is the fastest growing on this island is called Luwak Coffee, coffee is produced from the fermentation process that takes a civet coffee bean and then removes it through the digestive tract. Coffee Luwak has a unique history behind the legend. In the early 18th century the Dutch established coffee plantations on the volcanic islands of the Dutch East Indies. This Coffee Luwak Arabica coffee hails from the mystical island of Bali.

During the early years, Dutch Coffee Plantation owners forbade the local natives from harvesting and brewing the coffee beans for their consumption. The indigenous people, being resourceful, soon discovered that the Asian palm civet favored eating coffee beans. These Luwak beans were collected, washed, sun-dried, and then roasted to produce a coffee with a deep richness, minus the acidity.

The process of the bean passing through the digestive tract of the civet chemically alters the proteins in the Kopi Luwak coffee bean to yield more complex and smooth flavors, not found in conventional coffees. The resulting coffee is said to be like no other in the world (literally). It has a rich, heavy flavor with hints of caramel and or chocolate. Other terms used to describe it are earthy, musty, and exotic.

The body can be syrupy and it’s the smoothest coffee you will ever have. One must wonder how this coffee came to be, and how was it discovered. Who thought of drinking coffee in an animal would eat and then expel. There are many theories out there but personally, this one is my favorite. It is theorized that local low-income families and natives could not afford to purchase coffee since they barely had enough to survive.

Therefore they picked up the Luwak dropping and prepared them for roasting. Of course, they were all well cleaned and proper steps were taken to make sure it was consumable. Guess what, Now this coffee Luwak is known as a worldwide delicacy.
