Orange You Glad

The oranges from Kintamani are so deliciously sweet that it didn’t take much to convince my aunt to buy us a few bags; after one bite, everyone wanted at least a truckload of these oranges. At this particular farm, they also showed us how they brewed their own coffee called Kopi Luwak which basically means coffee beans from the feces of the Asian Palm Civet. Don’t worry, the coffee beans are still in tact once they pass through the civet’s digestive system. Some producers say this adds more flavor to the coffee but others disagree and say it’s unnecessarily expensive and sometimes cruel to the civets who are sometimes force-fed coffee beans.
