This shade-grown Balinese coffee is harvested in the Kintamani Highlands atop a large volcanic plateau at 1300-1700m. In Bali, there are traditional farming structure organizations called Subak Abians, similar to a farmer cooperative. There are 13 different Subak Abians that are currently growing and processing coffee. The promotion of improved coffee growing practices is expected to enhance not only agricultural technology but social and economic standing in Bali, as well.
The use of pesticides is prohibited on Bali and all fertilizers are 100% organic. After these beans are naturally processed, they are sun-dried on raised patios.
