About Us

My name is Sundari Ardiyati and I have been inspired to share my unique Indonesian culture with people around the world. Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world but with pandemic, many people have been unable to travel. I want to bring a taste of Bali here with delicious local coffee, artisan handmade products, and clothing.

I have always been impressed by the talent of the artisans in Bali who hand carve wood sculptures and paint incredible original pieces of art with bright colours and so much passion. I want to support the community in Bali and hope you’ll help me along the way.
We believe online shopping should be accessible, easy and enjoyable. This is the vision Shopee aspires to deliver on the platform, every single day.

The Bali Kintamani

Kintamani is the name of a mountainous region in northern Bali, and this coffee takes it’s name from that region.
Most coffees that grow within Indonesia have origins from the coffee plants brought by the Dutch in 1699. However, coffee plants were brought to Bali at the start of the 20th century by traders from Lombok, an Indonesian island directly east of Bali. These coffee plants from Lombok were of the Coffea Robusta varietal, making them more resistant to disease. To compete in the global coffee market coffee producers in Bali began to also grow Coffee Arabica as well.

Bali Kintamani coffee has taste characteristics that are very different from other coffees in Indonesia. There is a fresh sour taste like the taste of citrus fruits but does not leave a trace (aftertaste) in the mouth.

In addition, coffee beans emit a very strong and sweet aroma. Plus, the size of the seeds is medium. Bali Kintamani coffee also does not emit a spicy aroma like other types of coffee in other areas. Of course, this is more suitable for those of you who don’t like the bitter taste of coffee.
This coffee is an Arabica type of coffee that is famous for having a lighter taste. The acidity level is also lower than Robusta coffee. Not surprisingly, this type of coffee is popular among local and international tourists.

The Kintamani coffee plantations grow at an altitude of about 1500 meters above sea level. Coffee farmers here often grow it on the same land as oranges and vegetables. When harvested, Kintamani coffee has a green bean size that is larger than other Arabica coffees.
As previously mentioned, Balinese coffee has a sour taste like oranges. The citrusy aroma that comes from Bali Kintamani coffee appears naturally without the influence of chemicals. This happened because the coffee trees were planted near the citrus plantations.
