Tours by Ijen Plateau
- Start Bali
Bali is easily connected to East Java and its magnificent Ijen Plateau. Take your chances, visit the most acidic lake on earth.
- Start Yogyakarta
Too many intriguing spots in between Yogyakarta and the famous Ijen crater lake. It is more than worthwhile to visit one or more. Take a look.
- Start Surabaya
As Surabaya is connected to the world with its international airport, the Ijen Plateau is closer than you might think. Captivating Sukamade turtle beach may perhaps be added to your list.
- Start Jakarta
Just scheduled; you can fly from Jakarta to Banyuwangi via Surabaya. Then you will meet the Ijen Plateau the same day.
The coffee beans are eaten by the animal luwak. The meat of the bean is digested, but the pit remains intact and passes through the gastrointestinal tract. The fermentation in the animal gives this coffee its beloved and exquisite taste. The pits are found in the defecation of the civet. The pits are collected and washed. To preserve the flavor as much as possible, the seeds usually are lightly roasted.
At the Ijen Plateau some civets are held in captivity. A worldwide discussion is going on about the living conditions of this animal. Nowadays it is also possible to get luwak coffee that exclusively is produced from beans found in the wild.
