A fragrant toffee aroma with flavors of walnuts and semi-sweet chocolate, with a crisp black cherry finish; this coffee comes from the Kintamani Highlands in North Bali, Indonesia.
Our Bali Blue Moon is grown at an altitude between 3200 and 3900 feet, under shade trees, with orange and tangerine trees planted between the rows of coffee. Harvesting is done from May to October when only ripe fruit is picked, and the coffee is then semi-washed with a two-step sun drying process.

People: Arabica coffee farmers in Kintamani are organized into traditional groups called Subak Abian. The groups act as rural cooperatives, which sell coffee in concert with export groups, and are founded on the Hindu philosophy of "Tri Hita Karana" (The Happiness Causes). This philosophy consists of the importance of the relationship of human beings to God, to other humans and to the environment.
Process: The coffee is organically farmed, althought not certified. Harvesting is done from May to October and only ripe fruit is picked. The coffee must contain 95% red fruit to be accepted for processing. The coffee is semi-washed, with a two-step sun drying process.
Pairing: Chocolate brownies and bagels.
