Bali Paradise Valley by Morghan Rake Coffee Review |
  • Morghan Rake Coffee

  • Bali Paradise Valley

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: April 2007
Origin: Central Bali, Indonesia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Extraordinarily sweet-toned, lyrically delicate coffee, softly acidy, with orange, molasses, flowering grass and white wine notes. Clean, sweet, rich finish. Only a slight stiffening in the finish as the coffee cools holds this coffee back from an even higher rating.

Notes: The market name for this coffee is Bali Shinzan. Conventionally wet-processed by a mill in the central part of the island of Bali, this coffee resembles the coffees of East Java in its sweetness and delicacy, but appears to add certain distinctive and quite original aromatic nuance. Morghan Rake is a line of lighter-roasted, super-specialty coffees offered by Greencastle Coffee Roasters, a small-batch roasting company that offers a particularly wide range of exotic single-origin coffees.
