JAVA COFFEE



Java Coffee features the low-toned richness, familiar to Indonesian Coffee lovers. It is a bit more acidic with lighter body and a hint of smoke and spice.


Java Growing Regions

NOTES FROM OUR IMPORTER:

Javanese coffees are brighter and cleaner Indonesian coffees. Javanese coffees are fully wet processed, unlike Sumatrans, and this process kicks off the acidity, drops the body, and reduces the earthiness of the cup a tad, while retaining the overall Indo funk.

Javas are a great cup! As mentioned in the Yemen information, Javas were in the first blend, Mokha-Java. The brighter clean Javas were a perfect companion for the funky Yemens. This historical accident of a blend carries on today!
