This is BALI BLUE MOON, but naturally processed:

"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. The idea of a natural processed coffee was suggested to address an issue of water scarcity. It was an easy step to drying whole ripe cherries given that raised beds were already used for drying parchment. The project has been fully implemented and the results have been exceptional."

"Natural (dry) processing adds layers of complexity to coffee. Some people find that distracting, while others find it exciting and intriguing. The Indonesian character is still evident with the relative earthiness and rich body, but with the natural processing you’ll get more fruitiness coming through with notes of strawberry, raspberry and a little bit of orange. You’ll also notice a subtle hint of baking spices, like nutmeg and clove. Along with the fruitiness of the coffee, there is a sweetness like cane sugar coming through the cup. The cup has a smooth, velvety texture and pleasant, lingering finish."
