This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms located on the eastern side of the island of Java, Indonesia. Smallholder organic coffee production is atypical of the region which is dominated by large government run coffee estates established by the Dutch in the 18th century.
High altitudes and volcanic soil provide perfect growing conditions. Taman Dadar, meaning flower garden, aptly describes how smallholder coffee is cultivated - colorfully inter-cropped with parka beans, avocados, erythrina, albizia, and Leucaena trees, which produce food for shade and local consumption.
This coffee is wet-hulled, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed, producing a hallmark Indonesian flavor.
Support small family farms and feel good about the coffee you drink.
