INDONESIAN RFA ORG. BALINESE BLUE MOON
Hill Tree Roastery LLC
First new 2019 Blue Moon arrival and a very tasty one. Just starting to get into the new Indo crop year.
Bali Org. Blue Moon 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 priest who practice Tri Hita Karana (the three sources of prosperity), a philosophy focused on the harmonization between the environment, humans and God.
A very rich, clean, and smooth cup. A cousin to Sumatra or Sulawesi coffee; Blue Moon always is a bit smoother without as much earthiness. A little hint of sweet acidity balanced with a nice chocolaty molasses undertone. Medium to full bodied with low acidity, a nice daily cup. Hints of slight smoky tones and soft fruit can be found, especially in a darker roast.
