We're so glad to be bringing back this coffee from Karana Global, who last year succeeded in making it to the Top 20 in the Indonesian Cup of Excellence, being the only Balinese company who have scored above 87 in an international auction.
Karana Global is a collaboration between Rodney Glick (Australian) and Edi Kadek (Indonesian) two like minded coffee professionals with a wealth of knowledge in the specialty coffee industry. Using their experience in Q grading, coffee chain supply, roasting and making coffee they focus on producing and processing excellent Balinese coffee.
Located in the center of Ubud, an hours drive from the coffee plantations of Kintamani and Tabanan, they value the importance of quality at each stage from the farm to the finished product. Training and employing locals to contribute on projects focused on community education and environmental conservation.
From Karana we have chosen this S795 and Kartika varietals, which exhibit strong red fruit flavours after being naturally processed. This year it tastes like dried strawberries, red plums and butterscotch.
