“Tourist Trap?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013

I was here last week on my way back to Seminyak from a day trip in Ubud. I thought that its gonna be a big coffee farm and I was really going to see the whole coffee-making process. But it wasn't anything like it.

The girl greets you at the entrance, shows you a couple of coffee trees, shows a Civet in a cage, then shows an old lady roasting and a kid grinding the beans. The whole area was about 150 sqm, then they take you to a tasting area nearby where you get to taste 5 different coffees and 5 different teas. Then there's a shop on the way out where you can buy the products.

The whole thing looked 'staged' and the coffee was way too sweet. I asked the girl if they had a bigger farm elsewhere, she said yes, but then I wonder, why didn't they just show us that?
