Java, an island in Indonesia, was first introduced to coffee in 1699. Blue Java’s name is attributed to the bluish hue that is visible in the raw coffee bean. This coffee is produced on farms completely surrounded by the jungle. The inhabitants of this region find their identity in the jungle, so the coffee farmers do everything they can to protect it. Farmers use permanent shade trees such as Erythrina, Albizia, and Leucaena on their farms. Shading intensity generally ranges from 30% to over 50%. This coffee is washed and patio dried.
Tasting Notes: Sweet, buttery body with a fresh, spruce fragrance. A pleasant, lingering finish.
Some of the ways we love to enjoy this coffee at home are the Clever and the Chemex.
