1-2 hours

The Segara Windhu Coffee Plantation in Bali is one of the most-visited coffee plantations in this region, which gives you an insight into the world of coffee production. The highlights are the view of Bali's lush landscapes and the tasting where you can try the luwak coffee.

When you enter you will get a short guided tour through their lovely garden to witness the coffee-making process firsthand. They will explain the various stages of coffee cultivation, from seedling to harvesting and processing.

Located amidst picturesque surroundings, the plantation often includes a tasting session where guests can sample different types of coffee and teas, including the famous Luwak coffee, renowned as one of the world's most expensive and unique coffees.

Luwak Coffee

You will also see how luwak coffee (also known as Kopi Luwak) is made. This coffee is made from coffee beans that have been eaten and passed through the digestive system of luwkas (civet cats). So yeah, you will basically drink your coffee from beans which were the poop of the luwak. Do not worry, they washed the poop / the beans before roasting :) You will also see a luwak there.

As the beans travel through the luwak's digestive system, they undergo fermentation and enzymatic treatments, which are believed to alter the beans' composition and reduce their bitterness, resulting in a smoother and less acidic flavor profile.

Of course the plantation has a souvenir shop as well where you can buy all the products you tried during the tasting session.


A visit to Segara Windhu Coffee plantation is insightful especially if you do not know how coffee is being made from ground up and how the coffee plants look like (arabica vs robusta).

We would recommend to visit this coffee plantation after hiking Mount Batur if you not too tired. It is on the way back to Ubud from Mount Batur.

One of the highlights is the awesome view while you are tasting your coffee. The tasting itself was free for us, however, we needed to pay for the luwak coffee. Honestly, we did not like the luwak coffee that much (it was too strong), but it is definitely worth a try.
