The Indonesian island of Bali is pristine: chemical fertlizers and pesticides are outright illegal. The coffee is grown on the volcanic soil up in the mountains, and processed in traditional Indonesian wet-hulled method. The result is a rare and special coffee that is rich and warming. The temples of Bali are protected by Guardian statues that are said to house demon spirits who have converted from evil to good and now guard the temple as restitution for their past evil deeds. So Mr. Mug dressed up like a Guardian to protect the coffee beans from anyone trying to drink them all when you aren't looking. This is a dark roast, slightly darker than we roast the beans from neighboring Sumatra, and this coffee has a distinct taste specific to Bali Island. We like it and roast a few bags of it when it comes in season in late fall and into winter.
Tasting Notes: Bali Blue Moon -- rustic, vanilla, licorice, bitter cocoa, thick body, low acid
