THE NEW CROP IS HERE!

Bali Blue Moon has been a well known secret among home roasters. It is a coffee growing region that has been heavily regulated by government, which may seem like a bad thing, but it means that both the quality of the stock used and the handling and processing are excellent. So what does all this give you?

A coffee that is smooth and somewhat syrupy in the mouth. It has an anise flavor which adds spice to the dark chocolate and vanilla bean flavors. It is a tad sweet and very complex. All of this mean that it has gone beyond previous comparisons with Kona. It has a wonderful sensation that may vary a little with different roasts to include citrus notes, since these trees are often shaded with orange and tangerine trees.

It has changed quite a bit since the last time I ordered it. It tastes kind of like a weak tea.

I didn't believe the reviews, but figured I'd give the Bali a try. WOW! I bought 2 pounds a couple of weeks ago, but I really like this coffee, so I bought 5 more pounds today. I like it just past the 2nd crack and with two days of rest. Oh, and it's fantastic when mixed 3:1 with Ferdelance Espresso Blend. WOW again.

This is one of my favorite variety of coffee and this particular bean is very good. Roasted to full city (dark for some) I just love the balance of acidicidty and sweetness with a earthy chocolate finish.

Definitely needs to be medium-dark to dark roasted to get the full flavor. Filling the hopper to about 3/4 capacity and roasting 5 minutes made a huge difference in the fullness and richness of the flavor. Frequent (but not constant) popping and a tiny bit of very light smoking got the potential out of this one. LIght to medium there was just no flavor at all.

I purchased the Sample Pack of Bali Blue Moon beans, and quite frankly I’ve been disappointed. The first roast was about one minute after the first; the second I let go until I heard the second crack. The reports of tasting chocolate, berries, and other nuanced fruits didn’t show up all. What I did taste was light cardboard (yes...I washed my paper filter and rinsed my metal filter), earthy tobacco, and slight vanilla. I aged the roasted beans for 5-7 days. Using a Fresh Roast 500, the Bali beans took somewhat longer to roast than other beans.

This is one of the nicest, perhaps the best, Indonesian beans I've ever tried. It has this earth and spice, but in a sophisticated way. Made a very nice espresso when blended 50/50 with Brazil Blue Daterra.

Probably my favorite bean overall, I prefer it over Konas. I discovered it with the 2017 batch, and 2018 is just as good. I like it just at the start of second crack, not too tangy, slightly chocolaty, flavorful, and smoooooth. Its easy to roast, not a lot of chaff so good with the finicky roasters. And you know that wonderful smell the beans make before the first crack, this one will have your mouth watering its so good.

This one is a family favorite, makes a nice rich cup of coffee. Much better than the Sumatrans we’ve roasted. We always add this to our orders

This is our household go to coffee While I enjoy a good Kona I don’t enjoy the price, so I run to Bali blue moon when ever it is in stock usually buying 10-20 lbs to make sure I have enough! Great flavor and aroma

One of the best coffees I have ordered from CBC! The berry undertones are not undertones in my opinion...they are very prominent. Very Sumantran! Heady aroma too!. I am going to try to mix this into a good columbian and see how that goes. The wife however likes it just as it is. I highly reccommend this one.

This is a very unique coffee. It has some of that Sumatran flavor but it does not overwhelm it. The beans themselves are smallish and dark - not sure if it is dry processed. It absolutely has nice berry hints in it as the previous reviewer said which might indicate dry processing. And if you like a full bodied chocolaty coffee you will like this. Bottom line is if you are looking for something different this fits the bill.

Follow the roasting notes in the description and you can't go wrong with this coffee. At home and at work, everyone I have shared this coffee with has raved about it. I roasted it light and it was smooth and tasty, almost like candy. I thought I tasted a hint of berry in there too. Great stuff!

Great Stuff. I blend with Ethiopian Harrar in equal parts for my daily coffee. Doesn't get any better. Others that have tried it are usually too shocked to comment. But I do get asked where I buy such wonderful coffee? There's danger there, in that I don't want to roast for a living. But with so many people asking for coffee, it's hard not to at least think about it. That's what Bali does to you.

This bean roasts GREAT in a wok, or skillet! It has HUGE body and hits the sides of your toungue in a ristretto like a BOMB! I imagine bare-breasted women, picking these luscious beans by moonlight! I ACTUALLY bought these Blue Moon beans from another supplier (sacrelige?) BUT ... I should have checked here FIRST! The Guatemalan I replaced it with just doesn't compare! TRY this bean ... you'll like it!
