A Bali Blue is a fragrant toffee aroma with flavors of walnuts and semi-sweet chocolate, with a crisp black cherry finish; this coffee comes from the Kintamani Highlands in North Bali, Indonesia. Bali Blue has been a well-known "secret" among home roasters.
A coffee that is smooth and somewhat syrupy in the mouth. It has an anise flavor that adds spice to the dark chocolate and vanilla bean flavours. It is a tad sweet and very complex. All of this means 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.
