Bali, Indonesia

Chef Simone had the opportunity to discover the island of Bali in Indonesia and its beautiful local culinary traditions. 

The most curious one is probably the process to make "Kopi Luwak": The civet (a nocturnal wild cat) selects the ripest berries from the Arabica coffee plants, eats the whole bean and it expels them among its feces. The local farmer crumble and separate the layers, which cover the green beans. The green beans are washed and are immediately dried with warm air, after this, the beans are roasted in special pans and grounded by hand with a big mortar.

 

Three words to describe the experience in Indonesia:

"Big smiles everywhere"
