The experience

This plantation is a 19th-century Dutch Colonial heritage with lots of history and locally-harvested coffee. It is managed by one of the most influential and respected families in Blitar and has been handed down from generation to generation. In 2015, the property was opened to the public, offering tours through the coffee fields, museums, and a warehouse -converted cafe that has the charm and relaxed vibes of a Dutch-Indies past life.
