Bali: Organic Blue Moon, Kintamani Highlands
Cupping Notes: A smooth and syrupy body with an anise flavor adds spice to the dark chocolate and vanilla bean flavors. It is a tad sweet and very complex.
The Indonesian island’s government has heavily regulated Bali Blue Moon’s birthplace since the 1970s, which is a bittersweet situation––on the one hand, farmers may have less individual control over their crop. However, it also means the quality, handling, and processing are consistently excellent.
Moreover, Bali experiences significant social, economic, agricultural, and technological enhancement because of this regulation. No matter your viewpoint, it can’t be denied that this complex bean is of high quality.
