will not be shown online/infosheetJAVA BLUE SUNDA ARABICA COFFEE.The coffee is coming from a village named Loa, Bandung- West Java. With elevation range 1,100 m- 1,300m above sea level, the village has approximately 500 farmers with total coffee farm areas 300 ha. The total production of this area is just about 100 to 150 MT/year. The low production caused by no usage of any synthetic fertilizer.The dominant varietal in the village is linie S, but the farmers also plant some other varieties like Andung Sari, Kartika (varieties promoted by Indonesia Coffee and Cocoa Researcher). They are not using any chemical fertilizer on their coffee farms and all of them manage their farms organically. They even use the composted skin of the cherries as their fertilizer.//-->

Around 17,000 islands make up the Republic of Indonesia. They stretch over more than 5,000 kilometers along the equator. Naturally, landscapes and cultures vary from region to region. There are Indian, Arabic, Chinese and European influences to Indonesia's identity and a broad spread of religious beliefs. Nevertheless, Indonesia is often held as an example of peaceful co-existence and tolerance despite divergent lifestyles. As diverse as the Indonesian people is Indonesian coffee. Flavors differ significantly from island to island. Exploring them can truly turn into an exciting and adventurous activity.

Coffee cultivation in Indonesia holds a 300-year-old history. Today, Indonesia is said to be one of the top five coffee-exporting countries in the world. Out of the roughly 17,000 islands, only about a handful emerged as major Indonesian coffee-producing regions. Among the better-known ones are Sumatra, Sulawesi, Java, but also smaller islands such as Bali and Flores. Approx. 92% of the coffee production is in the hands of small producers using traditional techniques such as the semi-washed processing technique called "giling basah". "Giling basah" literally means "wet grinding" and hints at the major difference to the (fully) washed process.

After mechanically de-pulping the cherries, the beans are dried for a day. Next, the mucilage is washed off, leaving the parchment to dry. Here comes the essential difference: the parchment is only dried to 30-35% moisture content and immediately hulled in this "semi-dry" status. Usually, the parchment remains onto the beans until shortly before shipping. Now the hulled beans are set out to dry until they reach their desired moisture level of 11-12%.

As a result of this semi-washed process, the beans shimmer bluish and only have little acidity. They tend to have a full body and strong, spicy notes such as earthiness, tobacco, and herbs. However, due to the scattered smallholder structure and their autonomous processing, sourcing a homogenous coffee can sometimes result in a true challenge.
