Indonesian Coffee Plantations

Post by poodlek » Tue, 02 Aug 2011 12:06 pm

Has anybody heard of tours of coffee plantations in Sulawesi or Sumatra (or anywhere else in the region)? I'm looking for an "easy" holiday to take in a couple of weeks where we can go for a few days with a 5 month old baby. We're not big fans of laying on the beach and doing nothing, we like to be tourists. We're big coffee drinkers so I thought it would be fun to see where it comes from but haven't turned up anything in google so far. Anybody done anything like this before or have other similar recommendations?

Don't know about coffee, but there are some nice tobacco plantations in Sumatra. A trip up around Lake Toba and the surrounds should present some nice memories. (I've been to Lake Toba many years ago (early '80's) and it is beautiful up there.

A tobacco plantation! That's something I never in a million years would have considered! I'll have a look. (And thanks for the reply on the other thread too :-) )
