Our local Villa driver recommended this place as part of our day tour. The coffee plantation isn’t too far if you’re residing in Ubud, journey was roughly 15mins give or take with traffic.

The coffee plantation isn’t big, but you get an idea with what goes on once you go inside and employees of the plantation show you around, the types of tree, coffee and the special Luwak coffee.

Once you’ve been shown the Luwak, probably sleeping as the animal is nocturnal, seen the process of getting the coffee bean from the Luwak into your cup, you’re shown your table and given roughly 13 variations of coffee to try, for free! If you want to try the Luwak coffee, is Rp. 50,000 - which works out to roughly £2.75 for a luxury coffee.

Obviously this place will be filled with tourists, so don’t expect the locals to be here, however when you’re given an ample amount of free samples, it makes up for it, plus the on site shop sells the samples of coffee in 100g / 200g bags if you wish to take them home, along with spices and other commodities you may wish to purchase.

The staff on site are very knowledgeable, very friendly and welcoming and not at all pushy if you don’t wish to purchase anything from the shop.

This place is a gem. The grounds were lush and green and so well maintained. Everything was labeled so you knew why you were looking at and so healthy and vibrant. The coffee processing was amazing and we got to get in there and play around with roasting and grinding in the giant mortar and pestle. The hosts were great and they had a flight of coffee and tea that was free. The only one that was 50,000 rupias was the kopi luwak. Of course we tried it. It was very rich and a little grainy. But overall good. Great gift shop as well and we were able to see the animal that the coffee comes from. Great place! A must see!

It was informative and clean for tourists.
But you do not see the "real" plantation. So the production of coffee is described, but this they do professional (for tourists).
You get a free coffee and tea tasting. And you can have a Luwak coffee (kopi) for 50rpi.
This is all good.

Ok, you see two luwaks in a cage sleeping...
I cannot tell how these animals are treated in the farm. But what we read in the internet in general is, that it is not good to support that industry, concerning the well-being of these animals.

What is not so good are the prices in the shop.
Immediately after the show you go through that. You are really not forced to buy something.

And you shouldn't (specially for the Luwak coffee)!
You can find that coffee as retail product in every other bigger supermarket for 30% of the price.

We wished we had read the reviews before we were brought here because we would have skipped this.

When we arrived we were immediately met by a guide who gave us a whistle stop tour of various plants in this tiny garden. She pointed out a couple of quite young looking coffee trees which we thought odd; given we were supposed to be in a coffee plantation we expected to see many more coffee trees, and mature ones, for the amount of coffee being produced and sold.

The tour ended at a cage with a couple of civets: one was pacing manically while the other was asleep - these are nocturnal animals and it was the middle of the day! This made us feel very uncomfortable and suspicious about the place.

We were then shown to a table and presented with a tray of assorted teas and coffees. Everything tasted of too much sugar - the coffee was milky. We paid 50k IDR to sample the Luwak coffee which wasn’t really that great to justify the price tag.

The worst part of this experience was the shop that you are made to walk through in order to exit: 1) none of the food items had ingredients listed; 2) we noticed some of the boxes had written on them “less sugar” so we asked for tea without sugar at which point the guide appeared uncomfortable and said we don’t have and walked away from us. This part made the whole experience feel like an elaborate scam. Given other reviewers have described exactly the same, I’m more convinced that this is a TOURIST TRAP and a SCAM. I can’t understand the glowing reviews.

This is a tourist trap. It’s most unlikely it is even a coffee plantation or do any of their own processing or roasting. There were scattered plants of random native fruit trees and robustas coffee plants but no arabica in sight. 1st red flag. Everyone is assigned a personal guide to explain about the Luwak cats, their harvesting methods and traditional roasting. It is very scenic and beautiful with the valley and vegetation surrounding you but don’t let this fool you, calling this a plantation is a real stretch. I didn’t see more than 5 coffee plants and less than 10 cats in total. There’s no way they would be able to produce anything on a commercial level supplying the souvenir store with their product. This place is more for taking pictures (swing and nest extra$)and Instagramming your experience, and I’m almost 100% sure tour companies and drivers get a kick back from bringing in visitors. The biggest joke of all was their free samples of coffee. Everything tasted like heavily sugared watered down instant coffee. Worst than tassimo or any of those junk coffee pods. If you want good coffee or maybe just decent coffee, there are plenty, PLENTY of wonderful espresso bars all over Ubud that take coffee seriously. I ended up purchasing the avocado coffee and dark chocolate out of guilt for the free tour and samples they provided us. Upon arriving home, I opened up both products to try. Neither product was edible. The coffee had specks of instant coffee granules in a mountain of powdered creamer and the chocolate tasted nothing like chocolate, more like a bar of palm oil. Also both products did not list their ingredients. Red flag #2. I would have been so embarrassed had I gifted these as souvenirs. Everything in their store was astronomically over inflated, I feel duped and cheated.

The product tasting is good but the actual product they sell is pretty bad. Their luwak coffee is expensive but tastes worse than a normal Starbuck coffee. Also, they sell the incense for 50k while in the market, the same incense is just sold for 10k. What a rip-off.

We visited the coffee plantation, where we were taken around by a guide. He showed us the different types of trees used to grow coffee, cacao and lots of other spices/fruits. We were able to see coffee roasting and were given fruit teas and flavoured coffees to try for free.

They also sold luwak coffee for 50k, a special type of coffee made from the poo of a civet. They had a civet in a cage, ‘for display purposes only’, and wrote on a nearby board that these civets were released every week and a new one taken. Not sure how true this was.

At the end of the tour, we were taken to a shop where we could buy teas, coffees, oils and more. The guides do not pressure you to buy, but since the tour is free, you feel obliged to get something.

Great place for free. No entrance fee or anything. Yes there will be a guide that explains process after you go thru the garden area (nice). No obligation to tip or buy anything. Yes you get to try 16 or so teas/coffee for free. No one has a guun to your head to spend more. For 50k yeah pricey but ok if you think killing 1-2 hrs for $4 is not too bad. Also free tobbaco to roll while you sample. Most teas are sweet as hell and prob artificially flavored but the sampling is fun ... You're a tourist so no biggy to do touristy things.

Yes of course at end there is a gift shop. But your not obligated so just say no thanks and pay for your Luwark coffee if you ordered one. If not, you are free to go. Very close to the HOLY Spring Temple and free parking for your scooter.

We did tip the guide a buck or 2 ....

Enjoy
this is supposely better than the more popular Pumia one near the rice fields. We tried going there but didn't find so we just came to this one on our way to the Temple.

The main reason to visit was the Bali Swings which is part of the coffee plantation.

We had the tour of the small plantation, sampled the various teas and drank the Luwak coffee which is reputedly to be very expensive. We just shared one cup. Tasted like Nescafe to me once you put milk and sugar in.

There is a popular gift shop where you can buy the various teas and coffees. However Bali has no shortage of these types of shops and I can never vouch for the genuineness of the Luwak coffee beans.

Once the tasting was done, we went to the swings. That is what the kids wanted to do and we also had a nice stroll around the area.

... Other than that this place is a Must to visit.
Not just a tea and coffee plantation tourist centre but one with a difference!
Allegedly £75 a cup in some London venues you could be quite correct in calling it crxp. It's that coffee made from the coffee beans eaten by a local furry critter, passed, separated, skin removed and then called the rarest coffee in the world.
After free tastes of 13 of their coffees, teas and hot chocolates, I had no qualms about spending a couple of pounds on this, £73 well saved. So mild as to be bland. Obviously personal taste.
A great place and great staff with great t shirts.
