Visa Bali Info Buleleng Coffee. Coffee connoisseurs seem to have to listen to this one review, just to add to your insight about coffee from various regions in Indonesia.

Actually, many regions in Indonesia are coffee producers. But this time we will discuss coffee from Bali.

Who would have thought that Bali is also a producer of robusta coffee. Bali is not only famous for its tourism, at this time Bali will also introduce Balinese coffee.

History of Coffee Development


Many Indonesians think that coffee is a native Indonesian commodity. It should be noted that coffee is not native to Indonesia but from mainland Africa.

It is indeed proven in the history of coffee that the coffee plant was found in Africa. After the discovery of the coffee plant, then this plant began to be cultivated and spread throughout the world.

The history of coffee in Indonesia began when the Dutch Governor in Malabar (India) sent seeds of Yemeni coffee or Arabica coffee (Coffea arabica) to the Dutch Governor in Batavia (now Jakarta) in 1696. These first seeds failed to grow because of floods in Batavia.

The second shipment of coffee beans to Batavia is reported to have taken place in 1699. This plant grew, and in 1711 the first exports were sent from Java to Europe by a Dutch trading company, known as the VOC (Verininging Oogst Indies Company) which was founded in 1602.

For 10 years, exports increased to 60 tons per year. Indonesia is where coffee was first cultivated extensively outside of Arabia and Ethiopia. The VOC monopolized the coffee trade from 1725 to 1780.

Along with its development, in 1920 small companies in Indonesia began to grow coffee as the main commodity. Plantations in Java were nationalized on Independence Day and revitalized with new varieties of Arabica coffee in the 1950s. This variety is adopted by small companies through government or various community development programs.

Busungbiu is the Largest Coffee Producer in Buleleng


Several villages in the Busungbiu sub-district are the largest Robusta coffee producers in Buleleng. Until now, the production can reach 2 to 3 tons per hectare.

With a fairly large amount of production, it is hoped that there will be coffee with its own distinctive taste, one of which is coffee from Pucaksari Village.

Buleleng Regent Putu Agus Suradnyana said he would continue to strive to maximize coffee as one of the main plantation commodities. With a high production volume, he hopes that the Department of Agriculture will be able to produce coffee with a distinctive taste.

The topography gives an advantage to the coffee commodity. From the lowlands to the highlands of 1,200 meters above sea level, the distance is no more than 20 kilometers. So the variety is very complex.
