5oz. whole bean coffee
Processed using a local traditional processing method called “Gilig Basah” which is commonly known as wet-hulling. This unique processing results in coffee beans with a distinctive dark bluish green color. That’s why the local producers call this delicious coffee “Blue Moon.” Wet-hulling also imparts a distinctive flavor profile: low acidity, complex woody earthiness and spices like pepper, cinnamon and black pepper. Bali Blue Moon is no exception but something about the local growing conditions and careful farming practices cleans up this profile a bit. Think of it as Sumatra but with the edges rounded off! It’s just a bit brighter, a touch sweeter and a little cleaner.
This coffee is sourced from family owned farms located in the Kintamani highlands on the island province of Bali, Indonesia. Coffee is grown in the volcanic soils of Mount Agung along with citrus trees that provide shade and another source of income. Coffee production is typically organized around a Subak Abian, which refers to the ecologically sustainable irrigation systems developed more than 1,000 years ago by Hindu priests who practice Tri Hita Karana (the three sources of prosperity), a philosophy focused on the harmonization between the environment, humans and God. Additionally, it should be noted that while this coffee isn’t certified organic, the use of pesticides on the island is prohibited and all fertilizers used growing this coffee are 100% organic!
