Set 12 km outside of Ubud, the Bali Pulina plantation is based in Tegallalang, Bali. The entrance is free, and you will be greeted by a knowledgeable guide who will show you around the complex, and also take you through the processes involved in making the most expensive coffee in the world.
Kopi Luwak (Indonesian for Civet Cat) is produced from coffee beans that have been digested, and excreted, collected and roasted & ground to make Kopi Luwak coffee. This process ensures that the coffee loses it’s bitterness, and it’s now worldwide fame for it’s smoothness.
The grounds themselves are immaculately kept and houses an array of plants and spices that you will see, taste and smell along the tour and are used in their samples that you will get to taste. These include ginger,cinnamon, chocolate and vanilla teas and coffee’s. You have to purchase the Luwak coffee for a small charge but otherwise the samples again are free and a nice surprise at the end of looking around the plantation.
At the end there is the shop where you can buy singular or multiple packs of all the samples that you have tried. There is no pressure but couldn’t resist the chocolate coffee which was my favourite. Overall, with it’s picturesque views and tranquil setting a great experience and not to be missed.
