A Taste of Ubud's Coffee Culture

Bali's coffee scene is a vibrant tapestry woven with tradition, innovation, and the exotic allure of Kopi Luwak. Nestled amidst the lush greenery of Ubud, BAS Coffee Plantations welcomed us with open arms and the enticing aroma of freshly brewed coffee. 

How Safe is Kopi Luwak?

One of the first questions that came to mind when we learned about Kopi Luwak was its safety. After all, the beans used in this unique brew pass through the digestive system of civets before being harvested. Rest assured, the beans undergo thorough cleaning and sanitization processes to ensure they are safe for consumption. The final product is meticulously crafted to deliver a smooth, rich flavor without any compromise on safety. Exploring the Price Range

Now, let's talk about the elephant in the room—Kopi Luwak's price tag. Often referred to as the "world's most expensive coffee," Kopi Luwak certainly commands a premium. The labor-intensive process, from the civets' selective eating to the meticulous cleaning of the beans, contributes to its hefty price. On average, a cup of Kopi Luwak can range anywhere from $30 to $100, depending on the location and quality of the brew.

Sampling the Flavors

Our adventure truly began when we met the adorable civets, the stars of the Kopi Luwak show. These furry critters play a crucial role in the coffee-making process, selecting only the ripest cherries for their special treatment. It's a quirky tradition that adds a fascinating twist to the coffee experience.

What Makes Kopi Luwak Unique?

The magic of Kopi Luwak lies in its process. After the civets have selected the finest cherries, the beans undergo a special fermentation process in their digestive system. This fermentation is said to impart a unique flavor profile to the beans, resulting in a smooth, low-acid brew with hints of chocolate and caramel.


While Kopi Luwak has captured the imagination of coffee lovers worldwide, it has also faced its fair share of controversies. Some animal welfare groups have raised concerns about the treatment of civets in the coffee production process. To address these concerns, reputable plantations like BAS Coffee Plantations ensure ethical practices and prioritize the well-being of their civets. Visitors can witness firsthand the care and attention given to these furry friends.

Tasting the Exotic Brews

Our visit to BAS Coffee Plantations was a feast for the senses. We indulged in a delightful coffee tasting session, sampling a range of blends and flavors. The coconut-infused Kopi Luwak was a standout, with its tropical notes and velvety texture—a true Balinese delight.

Pairing our coffee with local treats added another layer of flavor to the experience. From crispy snacks to sweet delicacies, each bite was a perfect accompaniment to the bold and robust brews. It was a symphony of flavors dancing on our taste buds. Soaring High Above Ubud

As the day drew to a close, we found ourselves soaring high above the lush fields of Ubud on the iconic Bali Swing.
