Here you will see spectacular rice terraces unfolding from the foot of the mountain to the coastal side of Bali. Its name derives from Jati and Luwih. Jati means really and Luwih means awesome. Here is the largest and most picturesque expanse of paddies in Bali and perhaps the whole of Indonesia. The incredibly green terraces spread over a great distance. At 5pm visit a coffee, cocoa and tea plantation on your way home. The coffee is made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by Luwak the Asian Palm Civet and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract. In their digestive tracts, fermentation occurs. The coffee beans finish the journey by passing through the civet’s intestines before they defecate. After that the farmers will collect the still-intact beans from the forest floor followed by the cleaning, roasting and grounding process just like any other coffee. You will be shown the process of making this coffee and will also be able to taste all coffee and tea drinks, except for Coffee Luwak (which you can purchase). Arrive back at your accommodation around 6:30pm.
