Bali Blue Krishna
Our most popular coffee is back! This is the coffee just about everyone has been asking for. Bali Blue Krishna is shocking Indonesian coffee. It's full of rich fruit aromas and volcanic earthiness. The aroma is overwhelming; it's bursting with sweet tobacco, Brazil nuts, and caramelized sugars, and chestnuts. In the cup, the body is deep, earthy, and mysterious. It's full of baker's chocolate, rich cherry, and bright, overripe plum. Bali Blue Krishna is bold, strong, and velvety coffee. The finish is rich and lingering, with a bold licorice flavor, full of robust cacao. There's fantastic intense gritty anise spice, reminiscent of Good -n Plenty candies. This is a stunning coffee, from the heart of Indonesia.

Our Bali Blue Krishna 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 priests who practice Tri Hita Karana (the three sources of prosperity), a philosophy focused on the harmonization between the environment, humans, and God.
