Never in my entire life had I imagined that I would taste something which will become unforgettable for the rest of my life. But that’s the fun of travelling and boons of being a traveller. You have so many tales and experiences to share with others. While travelling to Ubud in Bali I had an experience where I tasted the world’s most expensive coffee ‘Kopi Luwak’. And what shocked me more was it is made from a poop of an animal. Now, this is what I will be telling you here.

Travelling to Ubud, the most popular and Instagrammable destination of Indonesia, I stopped by a coffee plantation and see how this is actually made. Here they also give you ‘Kopi Luwak’ coffee to drink.

Cheers to the day when I dared myself to go for this swing. I only know how much I was scared and the way Skand was boosting my morale. Trust me, it was an unforgettable moment for me. Up above world so high….was the son hitting in my mind. 🎈 🎈 🎈 🎈 That day took me down to the memory lane and recalled my decision which I took year back. I had decided to start a fresh career as a blogger. With no sense of how to make content to woo the target audience, I just started my journey. I should admit that I have come a long way but still there are lot many things to learn. Like getting numbers on Instagram, comments and the list goes on and on. But I never regretted my decision as Skand is my constant support. And I can't be more thankful to god. 🎈 🎈 🎈 🎈 🎈 How many have you regretted your any decisions or not? Waiting for your comments. Please share your thoughts. #gopro #goproindia #hero7black #goprolandcape #goprolife #goprofamily #ubudtraveldiaries #goprotraveller #goprophotography #jaigopro #yourshot_india #sidthewanderer #mypixeldiary #cntgiveitashot #Indiantravelblogger #traveltheworld #creativecontentbuilders #incredibleindia #sheisnotlost #MaiBhiSadakChap #photographers_of_india #natgeoyourshot #anotherelement #travelphotography #travelgoals #_coi #_soi #dametraveler #femmetravel #atravelkatha
So, when we entered the plantation a pretty girl approached me and asked to follow her. Well dressed in typical Balinese dress and a sarong wrapped on her waist, the girl showed me the process step by step and explained the whole procedure. With Luwak coffee gaining popularity, Indonesia has also grown as a popular tourist destination.
Kopi Luwak is the world most expensive coffee and it is made from the poop of a civet, a catlike creature. Civets are given Arabica coffee beans which they partially digest and then poop out. A cup of Kopi Luwak is priced between $35- $100 (in Indian currency Rs 2,500- Rs 7,500).
Then the question arises, whether it is worth to give it a try. So, before you rush for a conclusion, please wait and read why this coffee is so costly and whether it is good? I would say yes because the civet is actually clever and only picks those coffee cherries which are most ripe. Second, their digestion changes the structure of the protein which again removes some acidity properties.
When my tour was completed, I was offered this coffee. I know you all must be thinking whether I drank it or not. Yes, I had the ‘unforgettable coffee sip of my life’.
