Story

Forty-seven miles from the heart of Bali lies mountain scenery and a clean breeze in Kintamani. Kintamani is well known for its fertile soil and is the source of the well-known ‘Bali Orange’ and other agricultural products including coffee beans.

Beaneka’s trusted local coffee farmer from Subak Abian, Mr. Wayan Warta gave us the experience when we came to witness the beauty of what used to be called ‘Bali Arabica’ in Desa Sastra Banjar Sanda, Kec. Kintamani, Bangli, Bali. Banjar Sanda has a 3-hectare coffee plantation which is run by a co-op with 69 active members by Mr. Wayan as its founding member.

Coffee in Banjar Sanda has been growing since the Dutch colony, but it was never the main concern for the Indonesian government until 1975 when the local government started introducing a new variety known as ‘Line S795’. Mr. Wayan walked us along the visit about his experience since 2000 starting with the “Harvesting Red Cherry Movement”, Mr. Wayan started processing coffee back in his facility with traditional equipment made of wood in 2003 until 2007 when he realized the urgency of modern pulper, huller, and storage facility to obtain a better yield.

Mr. Wayan’s determination, hard work, and care for his coffee as he talks, is an interesting story that is well blended and reflected into the cup of coffee which he humbly offers us today.
