Background Details

JAVA ORGANIC RFA KAYUMAS FARMERS RED CHERRY GRAINPRO is sourced from 66 family-owned farms located near the villages of Kayumas on the island of Java, Indonesia. In the 17th Century Java coffee was first cultivated in low lying areas, but by the late 19th Century coffee leaf rust had destroyed production, forcing new coffee cultivation into the highlands where high altitudes and volcanic soil provide ideal growing conditions. Organic coffee production on small plots is atypical in the region, which is dominated by large government run coffee estates established by the Dutch in the 18th century. The coffee's hallmark Indonesian flavor is the product of wet-hulling, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed.
