Luwaks

Luwaks are elusive, cat-like creatures that roam the coffee plantations and eat the fruit of the coffee trees. Once the coffee cherries have passed through the animal's digestive tract, they are used in the production of ‘Kopi Luwak’, one of the world’s most expensive types of coffee.

Coffee tasting

A highlight of any coffee plantation trip is the coffee tasting, where you get to taste a variety of different teas and coffees. This usually takes place with a coffee expert who can help explain subtle differences that you may not otherwise notice.

Shop

Almost all coffee plantations have an onsite shop where you can purchase coffee and other souvenirs. This is the ideal opportunity to buy gifts and keepsakes to take home with you and learn more about Bali’s coffee industry.

Most coffee plantations in Bali are open daily from 8 AM to 5 PM.

When is the best time to visit?

Bali’s dry season is from April to October, and this is the best time to partake in any sort of outdoor activity on the island. Many people opt for a morning tour of the coffee plantations when the temperatures are slightly cooler.

  • Bring along some extra spending money for buying gifts and souvenirs.
  • Book your coffee plantation day trip in advance to guarantee your spot.
