West Blue Java
£20.00 – £38.00
The West Blue Java has an unusual taste for a Java coffee due to the wet rocessing and its unusual cultivation region. The slightly earthy character, which is typical for Indonesian coffees, is rather subtle in this Javacompared to its eastern neighbours. Instead, it impresses with its body and a sweetness, which is seldom found among Indonesian coffees. A hint of chocolate aromas underlines this special sweetness.
West Java coffee from the region Sunda close to the city of Badung. Even though this is the oldest cultivation region for coffee on Java, there are only a few coffee bushes left. The largest part of the exported coffees iscultivated in the east of the country, primarily state-operated. It is mainly rice, onions, carrots and cabbage, which are planted in the west for the local markets, and few farmers have kept their coffee cultivation. Thecultivation takes place at altitudes of 1,400 to 1,550 m and the beans are hand-selected from various varieties before being washed.
