Following the Coffee Bean Journey in Bali From seed to sip! [edgtf_separator class_name="" type="normal" position="center" color="" border_style="" width="" thickness="15" top_margin="" bottom_margin=""] Everybody loves a good cup of coffee right? The rich, smooth feel of something so perfectly brewed you can’t help but hold the mug just that much closer?

Bali ist eine Kaffee-Insel! Glaubt ihr nicht? Ist aber so! Ich meine damit nicht nur die Cafés und Coffee Shops, die es gerade in den Touristenzentren an jeder Ecke gibt – ja, auch Starbucks hat es bis hierher geschafft… Auf Bali wird sogar Kaffee geröstet und angebaut.
