Share The Article

The Bali Tourism Office is facilitating the creation of a new coffee plantation and agrotourism initiative in Buleleng Regency in North Bali.

The project, located closed to Munduk, will give tourists seeking an off path experience in nature the chance to connect with Bali’s thriving coffee culture and rarely visited villages.

The Head of the Buleleng Regency Tourism Office, Gede Dody Sukma Oktiva Askara, has confirmed that the tourism department is supporting the development of a new coffee-inspired educational agrotourism destination called the Heritage Coffee Farm Roasters in Munduk. 

Speaking to reporters, Askara said, “The Buleleng Regency Government welcomes the presence of this agrotourism and eco-edu-tourism destination and is ready to facilitate its future development.”

Askara said that the creation of the Heritage Coffee Farm and Roasters is a good stimulus for boosting the coffee sector in the Munduk area and the northern regions of the province.

He noted that agrotourism initiatives, which integrate agriculture and tourism, provide both educational opportunities for domestic and international tourists, help farmers diversify their income sources, and allow tourists to visit areas they may otherwise overlook. 

Askara announced that in order to promote agrotourism and the Heritage Coffee Farm and Roastery further, the Bali Tourism Office will create the North Bali Coffee Festival.

The event would act as a celebration of the country’s favorite drink and be a forum for the coffee-loving community, hotels, restaurants, and Bali’s thriving cafe scene to come together in Buleleng to celebrate their love of all things coffee.

Askara told reporters, “We will do this during the season of high tourists in Buleleng, with the aim of being able to further popularise how the coffee heritage of North Bali can synergize with the increasing number of tourist visits, so it is not only for local consumption.”

The owner of Banyuastis Coffee, Gede Lusaka Harsadina, told reporters that Munduk is overlooked as a coffee destination and noted how the variety of coffee grown in the area is unique compared to coffee grown elsewhere on the island and around the country. 

Harsadina told reporters, “The coffee served at ‘Heritage Coffee Farm and Roastery’ is coffee grown in our own garden and processed ourselves, and visitors can experience this through Eco-Edu-Tourism here. We grow the coffee ourselves, we produce it ourselves, and we enjoy the results directly from our own garden.”

He shared that Munduk became a coffee-growing community during the Dutch colonial era as the temperature and altitude of the region were perfect for growing value-high-yielding coffee crops.

Harsadina said that the plantation spans over 70 acres and that each coffee plant take two years to come into fruit. He was happy to share that the plantain still uses traditional techniques.

He said “we do this processing process traditionally, What we mean is by traditional as in ancient times. So it is dried in the sun for serval weeks, then sorted and processed in the roastery.”


Tourists in Bali are increasingly interested in both educational and agrotourism attractions. Agrotourism is huge in Bali; from visits to ice plantations to coffee plantation tours, visits to food forests to forage before a traditional Balinese cooking class, and more, tourists have heaps of opportunities to connect with Bali’s natural landscapes and cultural heritage through agrotourism initiatives. 


Tourists are also increasingly on the look out for ethical coffee plantation tours.

After its come to light that the world famous kopi luwak, or civet cat coffee is produced in ways that create a whole host of animal welfare abuses, tourists are eager to support initiatives that promote ethical farming practices for land, wildlife and communities.

Well good luck with that. Wait until people try Vietnam coffee bean. As Indonesian I never find any coffee beans all around Indonesia that can compete with Vietnam coffee beans (nescafe classic use lampung beans n it's near Vietnam quality). I've tried Bali coffee beans yes it's fruity taste for some people it's good but it's not strong not bold one. Once u try such as G7 Vietnam coffee u know the difference is real!

We live in Lovina and would always take our visitors to Munduk Moding Plantation for lunch and their coffee tour. Post covid they stopped day visitors unless you paid $50 each for lunch and a coffee. And no coffee tour. I hope other establishments embrace the wandering tourist.
