Fresh out of the roaster, and just bagged… Java Kopi Sunda!
This is the second yea of a small-yet-ambitious project in Western Java – to build an outpost in the oldest coffee growing region in Java, work with the local farmers, and wet-process the coffee in tiny batches to high standards. This current lot was rigorously hand sorted with local labor from the community. It drove up the cost of the coffee, but resulted in a better cup, and is the spirit of this project to improve coffee and community in the area!
This is distinctive in flavor form all other Java coffee. All Java coffee sold in the U.S. is from Eastern Java.
In the cup it’s semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, red apple, and a wonderful tamarind note. The fruited aromatics add a depth and complexity unlike any other Java coffee. An amazing cup.
