ABOUT THIS COFFEE

This coffee is sourced from family owned farms located in the Kintamani highlands on the island province of Bali, Indonesia. Coffee is grown in the volcanic soils of Mount Agung along with citrus trees that provide shade and another source of income. Coffee production is typically organized around a Subak Abian, which refers to the ecologically sustainable irrigation systems developed more than 1,000 years ago by Hindu priests who practice Tri Hita Karana (the three sources of prosperity), a philosophy focused on the harmonization between the environment, humans and God. The idea of a natural processed coffee program was introduced in 2009 to address the issue of water scarcity. It was an easy step to drying whole ripe cherry given that raised beds were already used for drying parchment. The project has been fully implemented and the results have been exceptional.

Note from our roaster: We had coffee in the past from this group of growers and it was one of our most popular coffees, ever. We still get people wistfully reaching out to us, hoping we have it in stock. We chose this coffee as a follow up to our Good Food Award winning coffee because of it's similarity in flavor profile and sustainability standards. It is an amazingly excellent coffee that we can't wait to share with you.

    I first tried Modest coffee (the Collector) at the Farmers Market in Naperville and just loved the taste. So excited that I can continue to enjoy it in the fall and winter months as well! Great taste and flavor with mild citrusy undertones!

  2. Suzanne Kolars (verified owner)

    This coffee is so delicious, hot and cold! When I received the first bag, I noticed the roast date was only a few days before! I have never had coffee so fresh! I grind it and brew it in a french press. I make it extra strong and keep the brewed coffee in the refrigerator. I use this extra strong coffee to make lattes and iced coffees.I have never tasted coffee with a flavor so tasty and fresh. I want to drink it all day.

    Just like Suzanne said, it’s pretty wonderful to get coffee that has been literally roasted just a few days at most.

    Excellent quality. I always like a good light roast, and have been getting pickier over the years. I ordered online, came reliably, tastes great.
