Bali Coffee & Tea Tasting

A Taste of Bali in Tropical Surroundings

We have put this page in our Exploration Guide rather than the Local Adventure Guide as we feel it deserves special attention, to add, it is about 1hr 30mins away from Bali Sea Villas. The 'Coffee Break' (Subak Bali Agro) is an ideal place to take a brief rest from your journey to the villa from Denpasar or when you are returning home, it is also on the way to Ubud if you are taking a trip there.

This place is a little gem, you can stop here, have a personal guide (free of charge) that will meet you as you arrive and take you around the little forest which holds an abundance of naturaly growing coffee bushes, chocolate trees, pineapples, lemon grass, vanilla plants and so on, about half way round this plantation there is a stall that is set up for Coffee, Tea and Chocolate tasting and it is free!!.

After you tea and coffee tasting you will continue the guided tour and arrive at the home of the Lewak, the actual animal is there that eats the coffee beans and excreets them for collection by the staff, 3 x cleaning processes and then drying them ready for peeling and extraction of the coffee been that has been internaly processed by the Lewak, Amazing!!!. For information, the Lewak only eats coffee beans, it selects only the good and ripe beans, eats them whole and also deposits them whole, this is where the cleaning and pealing comes in by the staff. No wonder it's the most expensive coffee in the world.
