    The Coffee: Experience the rich, full-bodied flavor of our single-origin coffee from the stunning Kintamani region of Bali, Indonesia. Grown at altitudes of 1200-1600m on volcanic loam soil, this organic coffee is a blend of Bourbon, Typica, and Catimor varietals. The beans are meticulously hand-picked, wet-hulled, and dried on raised beds before being roasted to a perfect medium-dark. Savor the complex notes of dark chocolate, molasses, and brown sugar in every sip.

    The Inspiration: This coffee is named after Khaled Hosseini's debut novel, The Kite Runner, a tale of friendship, redemption, and the power of forgiveness set against the backdrop of Afghanistan's turbulent history. Just as the novel's characters navigate the complexities of their lives, our Blue Kite Blend invites you to explore the intricate flavors and rich cultural heritage of Balinese coffee.
