Tazz and I visited the Luwak coffee plantation in Ubud, Bali. It was a really informative tour of the plantation to give you an understanding of how to coffee is made from start to finish.
The Kopi Luwak is a little possum-like creature that eats the coffee berry. Once the Luwak poops the coffee berry out, it is collected and harvested, hence the name ‘cat poop coffee’.
At first, I was unsure if I wanted to try the ‘cat poop coffee’ but we learned that it is a completely sterile process.
We enjoyed a tasting of their different teas and coffees, whilst watching how the coffee is made.
