BALI Uptiti Sari Red Cherry


36 family owned farms located around Desa Lemukih, in the Kintamani highlands on the island province of Bali, Indonesia. Coffee is grown on the northeastern slopes of Mount Bratan along with citrus trees that provide shade and another source of income. Coffee production is organized around Subak Abian Manik Galih, a community organization that manages the subak irrigation systems developed more than 1,000 years ago. This religious organization times the flooding of fallow rice fields to a lunar calendar, with major flood gates at special water temples. This coffeeí«ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_í�í«í�ÌÎÌ__í«ÌÎ̦s hallmark Indonesian flavor is the product of wet-hulling, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed. The Red Cherry Project coffees offer a premium to farmers who deliver ripe coffee cherries.

Tasting Notes: Very clean cupping for an Indonesian í«ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_í�í«í�ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_Ì_•À_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_Ì_å« reminds me of the top years for the Blue Moon. Great medium to dark roast coffee. A little hint of a citrus acidity; almost a little orangeish type tone and very chocolaty. Medium roast is our preferred roast, retains just a hint of that citrus acidity with a thick and creamy chocolaty undertone. Dark roasts are awfully tasty as well but will add a smoky tone along with bittersweet chocolate.
