Photo By: Elin Chow

Driving downward the route from the rice terraces of Tegalalang, nosotros stopped at Luwak Coffee Plantation where nosotros convey the chance to sample a keen diverseness of local teas as well as coffees, including the highly prized Luwak java (also known every bit Kopi Luwak).

We met upward amongst a local lead who walked through a lush tropical garden where nosotros were shown the diverse types of herbs as well as plants that are used to brand the diverse types of coffees as well as teas. The lead was really friendly as well as patient, explaining to us the Luwak java making process.

Luwak java is ane of the most expensive java inward the globe amongst retail prices reaching US$700 per kilogram. Luwak (or Asian Palm Civet) is a pocket-size nocturnal mongoose similar beast native to Southeast Asia. Part of their diet consists of java cherries which they unable to digest as well as are passed out inward their droppings. Luwak java is made from the undigested java edible bean excreted past times Luwaks. The droppings are collected, cleaned, roasted as well as brewed for coffee.

Luwak java is known for its nice, shine as well as less acidic taste. Its rarity as well as odd procedure made it the most expensive java inward the world. However, footling did people know that behind the most expensive java inward the globe lies horrific beast cruelty. 

Near the entrance of the plantation, at that topographic point were several pocket-size cages where a few Luwaks were kept. The Luwaks sure does non await happy at all. 

Luwak java has larn hugely pop worldwide, which Pb to a spike of beast cruelty every bit the demand of java beans increase. As a result, many of the plantations inward Bali are keeping the Luwaks inward cages to ensure a high as well as reliable render of Luwak java beans, which inward turn, threaten the wild population of the animal.

H5N1 normal diet of a Luwak would consists of fruits as well as another pocket-size animals similar birds, reptiles as well as insects. Apparently, java cherries simply made upward a pocket-size per centum of its diet. However, captive luwak are fed a diet alone of java cherries, which caused wellness problems due to unbalanced diet as well as express space. 

Luwaks are nocturnal animals that slumber during the twenty-four hr menstruum as well as wake upward at night. However, captive Luwaks are generally kept inward cages nether the broad daylight, causing them unable to ease during the day. As a result, captive Luwaks are oftentimes often malnourished, suffering from fur loss, blood inward their faeces, stress of beingness caged as well as shorter lifespan.

We were led to a pocket-size sampling surface area where nosotros were offered gratis samples of 8 dissimilar coffees as well as teas. If I did non recollect wrongly, at that topographic point was Lemon Tea, Ginger Tea, Ginger Coffee, Ginseng Coffee, Bali Coffee, Chocolate Coffee, Vanilla Coffee as well as Coconut Coffee. 

I genuinely detect the coffees a footling also sweetness for my liking. But I create similar the Ginger Tea really much. Of course, Luwak java is non included inward this sampling. H5N1 sample of Luwak java costs 50,000 IDR (about MYR 15), which was a footling fleck also expensive for a pocket-size loving cup of coffee. 

The sitting surface area offers a overnice stance of the surrounding lush greenery as well as rice terraces. Visitors tin relish sample of many varieties of coffees piece taking inward the beautiful scenery.  A perfect house to relax as well as unwind.
There was a footling store adjacent to the sampling surface area for visitors to purchase the coffees as well as teas. But create non worry every bit the lead volition non pressure level you lot to purchase anything. Out of curiosity, nosotros bought a bottle of Luwak java abode to try. At that time, nosotros were non aware that our innocent purchase genuinely supported such beast cruelty. We definitely volition never purchase this java if nosotros convey known close the ugly truth behind Luwak java then.

Although at that topographic point are many companies inward the marketplace position that convey stated that their Luwak java is 100% genuine as well as wild, it is almost impossible to tell whether the java that you lot are buying comes from captive or wild Luwaks. I would non encourage anyone to fifty-fifty watch buying this coffee. We should non supporting such an unethical industry. Continuous demand volition simply encourage people to capture as well as abuse to a greater extent than Luwaks. Apparently, Luwak java is a highly lucrative draw organisation as well as everyone volition desire a mitt of it. 

I volition urge everyone to halt buying these extremely rare as well as thence called ''luxury'' coffee. If luwak java are genuinely rare, I believe the authorities volition boundary the total of java each someone tin buy. But you lot tin yet see a Luwak Coffee Plantation inward Bali. Most of them offering a skilful choice of other coffees as well as teas that are worth trying!
