KOPI AND LOTI FACTORY
Our hotly sort after factory tour of good old fashion local coffee roasting. Tribe brings you to one of few remaining local coffee roasters in a nondescript neighbourhood that even locals take for granted. Here, you will learn about the coffee beans, where they are from, roasting techniques that is unique to this part of the world, coffee secrets, optimum brewing temperature, but more importantly, the Natives or heroes that is behind this factory.
The minute you approach, the strong and fragrant aroma of coffee hits you and depending on the time of day, you get to see the different stages of roasting and preparation of the finished product. Here, the 'uncles' of the factory speak no English but rather a dialect. They allow you to touch the beans, sample some coffee of course and if they really like you, allow you to rake to cool the piping hot coffee beans!
Just as popular, is our visit to a local bread factory where only five remain. Here, Tribe gives you a behind-the-scenes walk through to explain this oldie but goodie and why these are different from the mass produced bread off the shelves. If you love old retro stuff that is fast going out of fashion, you will love to see the old equipment and wooden boards still used at old factories like these.
What good is a bread factory visit without sampling warm freshly baked bread....
This tour takes places every Tuesday and Friday, 0900-1200hrs with a minimum of 4pax to commence.
