Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2008
Origin: Central Bali, Indonesia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweetly and intensely earthy, with distinct nut notes, fresh-cut fir, and a balancing molasses and cherryish fruit. Medium to full body, quietly lively acidity, and a finish that fades with rich dignity toward a mild nutlike astringency.

Notes: Available at $13.00 per two 12-ounce valve bags, or an equivalent of $8.67 per pound. The spectacularly exotic and colorful island of Bali produces a small volume of coffee in the interior highlands. This is an impressive price for a rare and exotic coffee like Bali. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Definitely a romantic's coffee, a surprising and (for a classicist perhaps shocking) variation on an Indonesian theme: sweet, pungently nutty and earthy.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
