    Taman Nadi Agrotourism, Gianyar, Bali

    Kopi Bali Employees of Taman Nadi roasting & harvesting kopi (kopi means coffee), the traditional Balinese way Coffee Roasting

    Luwak & fresh cherry coffee berries
    This is Luwak - a nocturnal animal which consumes fresh coffee berries @night

    Excretion from Luwak - which will be cleaned & considered the rarest gourmet coffee

    Coffee Beans & coffee roasting

    Ending my tour, I ordered Luwak kopi with cinnamon stick, 30 000 Rupiah

    Kopi Luwark are robusta or arabica coffee beans which consumed by and passed through the digestive tract of Luwak.
    Luwak belongs to the Mongoose family and this animal are responsible for the creation of Luwak Kopi.......Luwak kopi has unique flavours. They can only be found in the islands of Java & Sulawesi. Long regarded by the natives as pests, they climb amongst the coffee trees eating only the ripest, reddest coffee cherries.
    The Luwak then excrete and locals gathered the beans, which comes through the digestion process fairly intact. It is known that the enzymes in the Luwak's stomach, add something unique to the kopi's flavour through fermentation.
    If you are heading to Bali, you should try Kopi Luwak - its worth the try as its something rare and exotic which you'll never get to taste in Singapore!

    Cinnamon Tree

    Cinnamon Tree Bark
    Cinnamon sticks for curries, cuppuccino, stews....

    Fresh Vanilla Pod

    This is the pure Vanilla Essence which I bought in Taman Nadi (guaranteed no artificial ingredients were added)

    Ribena or Rosella Fower - harvested and known as the herbal tea drink

    Fresh Cocoa - it actually tasted like Soursop!

    Spices galores!
    Packet includes: Saffron, White/Black Pepper, Coriander, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Cumin, Anise & NutMeg

    I like this gift pack of: Ginger Tea (Teh Halia), Lemon Tea & Coffee Ginseng!

    Ending the interesting tour, we were given some tea & kopi for tasting:
    Bali kopi, Lemon tea with sugarcane, Ginger Tea, Ginseng kopi, Cocoa
    Am sharing our experiences in Bali with this wonderful tour to the Taman Nadi Agrotourism farm. Since I love coffee, we headed to the coffee plantation which suprisingly farm other interesting herbs, teas, spices, Cocoa etc.....

    It is a knowledgeable tour for children to see how coffee & cocoa were harvested and processed.....Most of the vegetation are organic and no harmful pesticide were used.
    We had an enjoyable and meaningful trip to Taman Nadi.
    A trip not to be forgotten and the friendly staff who patiently explained and answered to all our queries.

    To end my tour, we had coffee, cocoa & tea tastings.........I've also purchased some spices, coffee powder and mementos to remember our fun and enriching trip!
