Another stop our driver 'strongly recommended' - short tour of a few plants and then you're hustled to a long row of tables with a standard 'tasting platter' of coffees. To try the Luwak coffee is about $5 extra per cup, and I'd say thats where they make their money. Same guide escorts you the whole time, including to the shop and exit.
Feel like we've been to dozens of places just like this around Asia and Africa - go if you're interested to try the Luwak, see if you can convince your driver to forgo his commission if not!

Traveling with a family of four with college kids

Decided to take a day trip to Ubud from Seminyak. We booked one of the many all day private tours offered from Seminyak area.

As part of the tour we stopped at the Satria Coffee Plantation.

Tucked amidst a lush jungle setting, the Satria Coffee Plantation, also commonly known as Satria Agrowisata, is amongst the most famous coffee plantations in Bali. Located in the Gianyar region of the island, the Satria Coffee Plantation is best known for its production of the uncommon kopi luwak.

There is no charge to enter the Satria Coffee Plantation.

The Satria Coffee Plantation is within a lush jungle, with a short path through a botanical garden leading to open air hut where you can see the Asian palm civet which are small Indonesian cat-like tree-climbing animals found in abundance here.

Although not an actual coffee plantation you get to see plants that produce coffee and tea. Here the staff explain about the Asian palm civet as well as the coffee production process.

Commonly known as Civet Coffee, kopi luwak is produced with coffee beans that have been previously eaten, partially digested and thereafter excreted by the Asian palm civet. It is largely due to its unappealing and rather weird method of production that the civet coffee remains one of the most expensive coffees that you can find in the world.

Following the collection of the cat’s waste, the beans are carefully washed, dried, pounded and finally, roasted over an open-fire. Some coffee connoisseurs say that the natural process of fermentation leaves the final cup of coffee tasting much smoother and less acidic than any other coffee.

A bit skeptical at first, I enjoyed learning about the intense craft and precise art that is required in the curation of the world’s most exotic coffee.

Satria Coffee Plantation also boasts of producing over 12 different types of teas, some of which are local, and some that are imported from different parts of the world. Some of these include ginger tea, lemongrass tea, jasmine tea, rose tea, lemon tea, vanilla tea and chocolate tea, among others.

After the lessons in coffee making you are guided to a beautiful table overlooking a picturesque backdrop of green tiered rice terraces and palm trees for a coffee and tea tasting of approximately a dozen teas and four coffees they offer.

There is no charge for the coffee and tea tasting. However, to try the famous Cive/Kopi Luwak Coffee there is a small charge (around $2 USD). Well worth the money to try a cup of this exotic coffee. This cup of specialty coffee typically costs $50 a cup in New York City!

In addition to tasting the coffee and teas, you can also purchase them in their gift shop, of course.

Definitely a nice place to take a break and try the exotic Cive/Kopi Luwak Coffee.

Our driver took us here on our way through Ubud. We had a guide who led us through the gardens (it's not a plantation) and talked about the various plants they use and how they get the "special" coffee beans with a demo of the cleaning and roasting process. We then got to sample a variety of teas and coffees, but had to purchase a cup of the Kopi Luwak if we wanted to try it. Lovely place, but did feel a bit like we were getting rushed through.

We had a wonderful experience with the tasting! Our driver took us here and we didn't quite expect such a great experience. The coffee and the teas were amazing, the setting is beautiful too! We ended us buying a lot of gifts from here to take back home. It was a rainy day so we enjoyed the tasting thoroughly and paid extra for a cup of the famous Luwak coffee and ended up buying some!

Feels like a tourist trap. Clearly drivers are instructed to bring their passengers here in exchange maybe for a commission. A short tour of a few plants (clearly NOT where they grow coffee) followed by testing of samples which make most visitors feel obliged to purchase overpriced products

Although not an actual coffee plantation you get to see plants that produce coffee and tea. Then you get to sample 16 different varieties of coffee and teas as well as purchasing luwak coffee which was a pricey but delicious.

This was one of the highlights of our time in Bali!

You start the tour looking at the different plants that create the fruit and get too see the Luwak which is the animal that ferments the coffee bean through digestion. The guide explains the process of creating the famous Luwak coffee & you can roast some of the beans yourself!

You then get to try the different teas and coffees that they create at the plantation for free. It was here that we chatted to one of the guides about the life in Bali, the importance of tourism, and just the wonderful customs and traditions the Balinese people have. Ayun was truly amazing and open about sharing her experience and we learnt so much.

We would 100% recommend asking your tour guide to take you here. The tea and coffee was delicious, and the whole experience was enjoyable!

We had a good experience. It starts off with a short tour of the plants and explanations. You are then given 16 coffees to sample for free. You can purchase the Luwak Coffee if you want for 50 000 rupiah. There are beautiful places to take pictures and a lovely environment. Our guide was very attentive and friendly.

If your unfortunate enough to be allocated the sales host that we got yestetday, you'll likely be disappointed. It was clear from the start, from the speed at which she was leading us round that her only interest was her sales commission; definitely not customer service. Didn't even take the time to answer questions properly. She then left us to taste samples and didnt return because she decided to juggle another customer at the same time even though there was other staff available.
Sadly, the only bad experience so far on our Bali
holiday. Would not recommend visiting this place.
