Bali is a tiny island– actually, a submerged volcano peak – just off the east coast of Java, with many small coffee farms. The farmers who grow Kintamani Natural belong to cooperative organizations known as Subak Abian (SA) founded on a Hindu philosophy known as “Tri Hita Karana” (the three causes of happiness). SA co-ops foster community in agricultural, social and religious activities, and have been certified Organic since 2008. Pesticides are never used on their coffee farms, and fertilizers are 100% organic.
This coffee is 100% sundried on raised beds; It’s perhaps the first-ever special prep natural Indonesian. Raised beds keep the cherry free of dirty flavour, and facilitate very quick drying in Bali’s high altitude sun and constant island breeze.
The natural coffee is extraordinarily exotic and unique with a rich, buttery mouthfeel while retaining Indonesia’s full-bodied character. A very fruity cup of lychee, tropical fruits like pineapple & mango on the first sip, very complex fruity cuppa.
