Coffee is not the main agricultural commodity in Bali, but the culture of drinking coffee is not a new habit in Bali. Long time before Luwak coffee was introduced to the world wide, Balinese people often drank it. Balinese think that coffee is just a sleepy remedy, not enjoying coffee as an art show. Therefore the culture of drinking coffee does not get more attention in Bali. Only when the Luwak coffee variant became known in the world, Balinese people began to concentrate on working on this sector. Bali has several coffee plantation locations, most of them are located in highlands such as in Susut area which is close to Kintamani. All of the coffee plantations are managed professionally, not only as coffee-producing places but also open for tourism as agrotourism. Like other regions, Bali also planted only two types of coffee, Arabica and Robusta coffee. Furthermore Luwak coffee is a type of arabica or robusta coffee which is processed naturally in the digestive organs of animals called Luwak. Luwak is a kind of civet animal that only comes out at night and they really likes to eat the fruit of coffee. They only choose coffee with high maturity, then eat it and remove the coffee beans with their feces. Coffee beans that come out with feces of Luwak then collected and processed into coffee powder with extraordinary taste and aroma. This makes Luwak coffee become as the most expensive coffee in the world. At one of the coffee plantations you can try for free several cups of coffee with different flavors, while to try Luwak coffee you must pay for it.
