Our Current Coffees

 

Bali Blue Moon

In Indonesia lies a hidden Jewel, the island of Bali. The

eruption of the Gunung Agung Volcano in 1963 caused

a delay in the progress of modern-day coffee cultivation

in Bali. In response to this situation, the government

enacted programs to help rejuvenate coffee production.

With the distribution of coffee seedlings to local farmers,

an island wide coffee growing campaign began. Today,

the coffee growing area in Bali is an estimated 7,500

hectares. Coffee tree varieties include Bourbon and Typica,

along with shade trees. The Subak Abian is a traditional

farming structure organization in Bali, similar to a farmer

cooperative. There are 13 different Subak Abians that are

currently growing and processing coffee. The promotion of

improved coffee growing practices is expected to enhance

not only agricultural technology but social and economic

standing in Bali as well. This Jewel among coffees stands

out with smooth body and overwhelming chocolate flavors.
