This coffee is a regional blend from the mountain peak ( peak is called "Gunung") of Tilu. The intermediary we are doing business with works closely with local farmers in West Java, wet-processing coffee in small batches to high standards. Java Sunda (West Java) was the original coffee area , but you would find few trees here of late.
Most Java coffee is grown in the East, where the big estates are. But farmers in Java Sunda always kept small coffee plots, although they mainly grown rice, onions, cabbage, carrots and other food crops for local markets in Bandung and Jakarta. Here amongst the Ateng and Jember coffees are some old Typica trees, the original Typica, which is quite amazing. (Java was the first destination for coffee from Yemen, with a stopover in India).
