Bali Organic Coffee by Bard Coffee Review |
  • Bard Coffee

    Portland, Maine
  • Bali Natural Kintamani Organic

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: February 2010
Origin: Bali, Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Intense fermented fruit reads as sweetly pungent herb, aromatic wood, and a raisiny dark chocolate or carob. Muted acidity, syrupy mouthfeel. The unorthodox flavors carry deeply into a long, rich finish.

Notes: The exotic and colorful island of Bali produces a small volume of coffee in the interior highlands. This particular Bali is a dry- or "natural-" processed coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit is removed, as is the case with the wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Bard Coffee is a coffeehouse based in Portland, Maine that is co-owned by roaster Bob Garver of roaster Wicked Joe. Visit or call 207-899-4788 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of complexly rough yet sweet-toned beverages; coffee lovers interested in variations on the fruity dry-processed coffees of Ethiopia.


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.
