Green Coffee: Blue Dragon, Flores
Farm: Flores is a small Indonesian island east of Bali, known as the “island of flowers”, not for its flora, but for the colorful coral reefs that surround the island. Besides Komodo, Flores is one of the few places where Komodo dragons can still be found in the wild and is part of the Komodo national park. At an average altitude of 1,500 meters, 13,900 coffee growing families passively farm 5,769 hectares. Unlike many other Indonesian coffees, Blue Dragon is dried on raised beds instead of the ground. This method exposes the coffee to air on all sides, allowing for a clean, crisper flavor profile.
Cupping Notes: Sweet chocolate and floral notes, earthy and smooth body, with a hint of smokiness.
