Besides being famous for its stunning tourist attractions, the Island of Bali is also famous for its coffee plantations. Indonesia is, in fact, a major producer, ranked fourth in the world. The cultivation of coffee in the Indonesian archipelago began around 1600 with the Dutch colonisation. Currently, there are over twenty varieties of coffee but Bali is, above all, home to the most famous, rarest and most expensive coffee in the world - Kopi Luwak. The production is strictly tied to the musang, a civet which ingests the berries which are used to produce an extraordinary and unique tasting coffee with a less bitter aroma and a chocolate after-taste. Today, the cultivation of coffee is prevalently biological in nature and is carried out in smaller farms which allow for people to tour their grounds and witness the roasting process, as well as all the other steps involved in creating Kopi Luwak, and then, of course, to taste it.
