Background

Kintamani Region is located in the northeast of Bali between longitudes 115o5’ and 115o30’ east and latitudes 8o10’ and 8o20’ south. Most Arabica coffees are grown between 1,100 and 1,500 meters above sea level and the topography range from flat to hilly and rarely mountainous. Although suitable for coffee cultivation the higher altitudes of around 1,500 meters are largely used for citrus plantatior vegetable farms. The temperatures could reach as low as 10 degrees Celsius at night with maximum day temperatures of 26 degrees Celsius. Average rainfall in Kintamani is slightly below 3,000 millimeters with approximately 140 rainy days per year. The drier months are in May and June as well as in September and October. The water sufficiency from to July to November is countered by shade trees and the application of organic manure to the soil in order to keep the soil moisture up. The loamy sands of Kintamani are quarter age and the volcanic Inceptisols and Entisols have good physical and chemical properties conducive for coffee farming. Located at the slopes of the active Mount Batur volcano and being in the vicinity of Mount Agung the Kintamani area is ideal for coffee cultivation.

The name Kintamani became synonymous with Bali’s coffee production and since 2008 the coffee produced here is placed under geographical indicator (GI) protection being the first of its kind in Indonesia.
