Munduk Moding Plantation History

A detailed tour into the history and production of the largest and also most successful Bali coffee plantation.

It was actually the Dutch who first introduced coffee trees to this area, recognising that the micro climate here was ideal for this crop.

Hence, from the 1880’s up until the 1980’s, the hill stations of Munduk were the most productive areas to grow coffee in Bali.

In fact, Munduk Plantation still relies on descendants of the original coffee trees that were imported by the Dutch.

In the 1990’s coffee prices fell dramatically. Many farmers abandoned coffee farming, switching to other cash crops that brought in higher revenues.

This naturally harmed the environment, with soil erosion and falling water tables following suit.

In 2007, the current owners discovered this hidden gem situated high above the forest canopy. A dedicated team cleared old growth and planted shadow trees.

They planted Arabica coffee seedlings, found fresh water sources, purchased necessary machinery and also created many jobs.

What To Expect At Munduk Moding Plantation

A small boutique hotel was established to create extra income for the project.

That small hotel is now known as Munduk Moding Plantation Nature Resort & Spa, and the Balinese run team thrive on showing daily tourists and guests of the hotel around the plantations growth and how well it has developed.

From the planting process, to the vegetable gardens and of course the roasting machines, you’ll get a thorough walk through and explanation of everything on the site.

Munduk Moding Plantation pride themselves on not only serving organic and cruelty-free coffee, but also offer breakfast blend, arabica classic and honey-roasted, as well as a few other varieties.

Over time, Munduk Moding Plantation has grown to become the fertile, sustainably managed organic coffee farm it is today.

If you’re looking for an ethical and worthwhile Bali coffee plantation tour, then this is one of the top things to do in Munduk.
