Coffee Cup on CoffeeWondering whether you should forgo your Starbucks run in favor of a cross-country run before work?

In fact, the caffeine could enhance your performance — particularly your legwork.

Coffee DumpingFOR three months last year the price of Arabica coffee behaved like a toddler who has drunk a few espressos, jumping wildly to a price of $2.27 a pound ($5 a kilo) in October—the highest level since 2011. A comedown was inevitable: the price of coffee has since plummeted, falling below $1.28 for three days last month. It has recovered, slightly but steadily—but the calm is likely to be short-lived.

CoffeeDripKit-m-0608Coffee may jump-start the day, but it has also given a jolt to world politics and economics. Hundreds of years before Starbucks became a hot spot for making social and business connections over lattes and laptops, thriving coffeehouses of a much different type were widely popular in the Arab world. Those first coffeehouses were in the holy city of Mecca in present-day Saudi Arabia. Nothing like them had ever existed. These were public places, known as kaveh kanes, where people gathered for the same reasons they go to Starbucks today, for coffee and conversation, to discover and share the news of the day, and to conduct business. They also enjoyed music, but not through earbuds plugged into mobile devices, of course. Those early Arabian coffeehouses were vibrant places that pulsated with singing and dancing performers gyrating to the rhythm of Middle Eastern music.

Bali Blue Moon 2Balinese Blue Moon coffee is a rare and unique Arabica specialty coffee produced by smallholding farmers in the fertile volcanic highland area at the heart of the colourful paradise island of Bali.
Arabica coffee planting in the Kintamani Highland was disrupted by the eruption of Gunung Agung in 1963. This eruption caused the production of Arabica coffee in the area to drop significantly for almost 15 years. Recently, the growing area of Arabica coffee in Bali is estimated at 7,500 hectares.
Farming techniques in Kintamani are relatively uniform. The manure used for coffee is produced organically by the animals inside the farm (cattle, goats, and poultry); pesticides are never used. The population of coffee ranges from 1,111 to 2,000 trees per hectare. The farmers generally prune their coffee trees using a single stem system.
Harvesting begins in May or early June and ends in September or early October. After picking the cherries, the farmers sort through to pick out cherries that do not meet their quality standard. After sorting, the outer skin of the cherries is removed by the pulping machine. Then the pulped coffee is put into a fermentation tank for 24-36 hours. After washing, the coffee is sun-dried on patios and drying racks. We have just received the first shipment of the new harvest. Call us for orders and samples.
