Culture

Our Bali Blue Moon Kintamani coffee is as mystical as the Island of Bali itself. Bali, known as the exotic jewel of Indonesia is located west of the Island of Java on the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands in the Coral Triangle. The Coral Triangle has the largest marine biodiversity in the world. Kintamani, located in Southern Bali is home to Mount Agung, the highest peak in Bali, Mount Batur Volcano and Lake Batur. Our coffee is grown on the slopes of Mount Agung.

Coffee has made a comeback in this region after the eruption of Mount Agung in 1963. In the 1970s and 1980s the government started to redevelop coffee in the region by granting coffee seedlings to the farmers. Today the volcanic soil is rich in minerals and the region has an abundance of rain to grow coffee and citrus. Citrus trees provide shade for the coffee and additional income for the farmers.

Coffee production is organized around Subak Abian, an organization of farmers developed more than 1,000 years ago by Hindu priests. Subak Abian refers to ecologically sustainable irrigation systems. The priests practice the Hindu philosophy of “Tri Hita Karana,” which translates to “the three sources of prosperity.” The philosophy is focused on the harmonization between man, God and the environment.

Origin

Flavor Profile:A complex coffee with an exotic syrupy body and hints of chocolate, vanilla and spice.
Origin:Kintamani, Bali, Indonesia
Plant Varietal:Bourbon, Typica, Catimor
Altitude:3,900 ft. to 5,250 ft.
Process:Wet-hulled and dried on African beds. In wet hulling, the skin and pulp are removed from the beans after harvesting. Once the skin is removed, the beans are partially dried on African beds. African beds are elevated screens that allow air to flow through and around the coffee. The partially dried beans have the mucilage and parchment removed before final drying. The final drying is completed when the beans reach 11% moisture content. The result is a fuller bodied coffee with less acidity.
