Background Details

BALI ORGANIC RFA UPTITI SARI RED CHERRY GRAINPRO is sourced from 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 coffee's 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.
