Origin and Plantation
Indonesia Java Blawan coffee from the region Ijen Plateau in the East java Island. 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.
Character and Taste
The Java Blawan has an unusual taste for a Java coffee due to the wet processing and its unusual cultivation region. The slightly earthy character, which is typical for Indonesian coffees, is rather subtle in this Java compared 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.
