Bali is a tiny island– actually, a submerged volcano peak – just off the east coast of Java, with many small coffee farms. The farmers who grow Kintamani Natural belong to cooperative organizations known as Subak Abian (SA) founded on a Hindu philosophy known as “Tri Hita Karana” (the three causes of happiness). SA co-ops foster community in agricultural, social and religious activities, and have been certified Organic since 2008. Pesticides are never used on their coffee farms, and fertilizers are 100% organic.
This coffee is 100% sundried on raised beds; It’s perhaps the first-ever special prep natural Indonesian. Raised beds keep the cherry free of dirty flavour, and facilitate very quick drying in Bali’s high altitude sun and constant island breeze.
The natural coffee is extraordinarily exotic and unique with a rich, buttery mouthfeel while retaining Indonesia’s full-bodied character. A very fruity cup of lychee, tropical fruits like pineapple & mango on the first sip, very complex fruity cuppa.

Good body & aroma, no need to adjust the brewing time with my mokapot + water (lungo) brewing method.
Taste good ....smell good
Second brew only manage to get the expected taste note of the coffee bean. However feel that the water is somehow drain faster through the ground than other coffee bean that i used to brew even though I have used slow pouring method with thin flow. It's still a good cup of coffee though.
This. Really. Captivated. My. Heart. Bright like a morning sunshine in your mouth. Magnifique taste note of tropical fruits & raisins with a hint of citrus. Great tasting coffee!

I have always been loving to taste the fruity taste of a clean cup. This mango & lychee taste worth to give it a try.

The roaster suggests filter method is best; but I prefer the French Press.
Wow! Sweet notes up-front; full body. Lots of flavours.
For me, this is a subtler version of Liberica. I like both - which I will prefer depends on my mood at that time :-)

Very fruity sweet aroma from grinding till brewing. The brew with moka pot tasted good. I am going to try it out with V60 soon.

Indonesia's own finca la esperanza that produces one of the best single origin coffee in this region. It's 'tingling' fruity notes does not compromise the coffee character.
personally I felt that it taste very different from the other Indonesian bean I tried before. Surprisingly sweeter than expected.
Use this coffee bean for cold brew.
Add fresh milk to make cappuccino. Taste very good. Like it very much. Also use the used ground coffee to purify air in kitchen. Smell so sweet and refreshing .
