Bali "Paradise Valley" Gourmet Coffee 1 lb. Bag


Eight degrees south of the equator, among the chain of small islands that make up Indonesia, lays the beautiful island of Bali. Bali is the world's third largest coffee exporter, and for good reason.

Rising above the steamy jungles, are villages settled in along the high altitude volcanic peaks that offer ideal cooler conditions for growing coffee trees. On these smaller plantations, ripe, red berries are often harvested by hand and then pulped the very same day. After fermenting for 60-72 hours, the coffee beans are washed in a water channel and then dried with the help of nature. The beans are spread out evenly on large concrete drying pans and are then given time for the sun to works its magic on them. To make sure the quality of the drying process is undeviating; the beans are raked regularly and consistently at a very specific pace to ensure that each bean has reached its potential.

The Balinese philosophy believes that the cause of happiness is a good a relationship with both people and environment. This belief system is evident in the painstaking work of hand sorting the beans numerous times to remove discolored, broken, unripe, damaged or poor quality beans. Tourists that visit plantations in this region are likely to find most of the labor, including harvesting the trees is done by hand.

Just as Bali possesses natural beauty in its people and agriculture, you will find this cup a true taste of its tropical pleasure. With its traces of the earthy Indonesian character in the background, and a low intensity, it's lighter body and a very mild character will soon prove why the coffee of Bali, Indonesia is known throughout the world.
