Background: Java has been an important destination in the coffee trade for over 300 years, going back to the 1700s when the Dutch East Indies Company first introduced arabica coffee to Indonesia. At that time a number of indigenous spices, prized by European traders sparked the formation of direct trading routes to Indonesia, but it was ultimately arabica coffee and its ascendant popularity that coined the widely celebrated nickname, ‘Java’. Most Java is wet processed, producing a distinctly clean cup with low acidity, big body, some nice chocolaty notes and a sweet, syrupy finish.
