The Best Coffee in Bali
As one of the premier foodie destinations in the world, Bali is a common holiday hotspot for Australians. One of the major reasons why so many travellers flock to this tropical paradise is due to the amazing java that is grown, harvested, poured and perfectly frothed into perfection.
Background on Balinese Coffee
The central mountain regions of Bali paired with the near-perfect weather make this an ideal destination for coffee farming, and farmers quickly took note of it once coffee started becoming a commodity centuries ago. Today, the Balinese people take great pride in the fact that their coffee is recognized as some of the best in the world. Even families with small homes on the countryside are known to have at least one or two coffee trees in their backyard, so growing this versatile plant here is practically a pastime.
The traditional way to drink Balinese coffee is to process the beans into powder after the they have been dried. Many people ship these beans all over the world, but if you decide to plan a Bali holiday, you can pour a cup of the world's finest brew in its freshest form.
