NOTES: Spices, Hot Chocolate, Herby/Earthy
The wet hulling method performed in Indonesia delivers a bluish hue to the bean that provides the name for this coffee. Most coffee comes from family farms in the highlands of Bali where each farmer carefully processes their own beans. The main difference in processing from other regions is that the parchment is removed when the coffee still has a high moisture content. Most farmers still follow a traditional rural lifestyle and avoid fertilizer usage while practicing sustainable practices. The coffee has some earthy and pipe tobacco aromas. The cup has a creamy body and a low acidity with a well balanced sweetness with notes of hot chocolate, spices, smoky and herbs. A lovely south east Asian coffee with its distinct terroir characteristics.
