Bali Organic Blue Moon


Starting at $7.00 / lb
As low as $5.25 / lb

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.

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!

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!
