Description

Shady growing conditions and the volcanic soil of West Java make for an expressive coffee. Careful dry processing gives it an intense sweetness and a full body, which are neatly balanced by fruity notes.

Origin

The Indonesian island of Java is one of the oldest coffee-growing regions in the world and was the first region to cultivate coffee on a large scale that was not located in East Africa or the Arabian Peninsula. Coffea Arabica was cultivated on Java as early as the beginning of the 18th century, in the course of Indonesian colonization by the Dutch East India Company. And even after Indonesia's independence in 1949, coffee production remained a significant factor in Indonesia's agricultural economy. To this day, the Southeast Asian island state is the third or fourth largest coffee producer, depending on the source - with harvest volumes similar to those of Colombia. Robusta accounts for the majority of production (75%), as an outbreak of the fungal coffee rust disease around 1880 affected a large proportion of the Arabica plants, which had been the main crop until then. The most important Arabica varieties grown today include Typica and coffees from the Ethiopian line, in addition to some targeted crosses such as S-795.

This coffee here was grown in the volcanic west of the island of Java and is a blend of the Typica, Catimor and S-795 varieties. The coffee fields are located in the shade of larger trees, such as pine and eucalyptus. As is customary in Indonesia, the coffee was picked by hand and processed by the Klasik beans natural cooperative.
