He shared that it is the unique flavor profiles of Kintamani coffee that have helped propel Bali coffee to the world stage.

There are a series of important factors involved in the growing process that give Kintamani coffee that iconic taste. 

This includes the quality of the soil in the highlands, soil, temperature, the types of plants planted around it.

Many small-scale coffee growers in Kintamani use companion planting growing methods, and the type of fertilizer treatment given or not given by farmers also affects the taste of coffee.

Bali coffee is in ever-higher demand, both on the island and around the world. The tourism sector has played a huge role in putting Bali coffee on the map, too, and cafe culture is absolutely thriving in Bali.

With more than 4.5 million international arrivals predicted to visit Bali this year, that’s a lot of coffee needed to keep everyone happy. 

Travel trends show that tourists are keen to do more than simply kick back and relax during a vacation to Bali. Data shows that travelers are seeking more immersive and off-the-beaten-path experiences.

This is great news for farmers in Bali who have begun to invest even more in developing agrotourism initiatives.

In areas like Kintamani and Batukaru, and other agricultural areas in Bali, tourists can now visit coffee plantations, food forests, and farms to learn about where their food comes from and rural life in Bali. 

While social media may give the impression that all the best of Bali’s coffee shops and cafes can be sound along the southern coast in Canggu or Uluwatu, in actual fact, some of the most highly regarded coffee baristas and roasters can be found in Kintamani.
