Coffee Rant - Bali Blue Moon

Bali Blue Moon coffee is a product of the island of Bali, in Indonesia.  Bali has a rich history of growing coffee, but in 1963, a volcanic eruption caused the island to have problems that persisted for almost two decades, severely stunting the coffee industry during that time.

Blue Moon is a figure of speech that connotates the idea of rarity.  Something that happens every once in a blue moon... doesn't happen very often.  Like finding a unicorn, the Loch Ness monster, or a governmental tax decrease.  Sure, there are stories about Bigfoot, but no one carries size 52 sneakers.

Blue Moon coffee might just be the Fountain of Youth of coffee-dom.  A quest for some mythical water sculpture frozen solid somewheres underneath the Epcot center in the swamps of central Florida.  Explorers have scoured the mosquito infested tropical jungles and the back halls of Hogwarts looking for a rumor of better coffee.

Rich and smooth with a pleasant aftertaste, hints of a tropical monsoon, and Hovitos!
