Limited Reserve Indonesia - Bali Blue
Author | groundwork coffee Date | January 10, 2018
Background: Bali . . . the name invokes a tropical paradise. And while coffee doesn’t generally come to mind, as part of Indonesia, it should. BALI ORGANIC is sourced from family owned small-holder farms located in the island’s Kintamani Highlands. The volcanic, mineral-rich soils around Mount Agung provide an almost perfect growing environment.
Intrinsically tied to religion in Bali, agriculture is expressed through a cooperative land/water management system based upon the traditional philosophy of Tri Hita Karana, which promotes harmony between the spiritual, human, and natural realms. As a result, agricultural practices emphasize farm and land management methods that are models of sustainability.
Coffee production is arranged around an organization called a Subak Abian, which manages both the agricultural and religious activities of its members. In keeping with Tri Hita Karana, the use of pesticides is prohibited and all fertilizers are required to be 100% organic.
