Washed Processed from Ciwidey

Satiny mix of violet and chocolate to liven your morning

Java, the most populous island in Indonesia, has a long rich history in coffee. Dutch traders first introduced coffee plants to the island in the 1600s. By the 1700s, Java had become a powerhouse in coffee production. While exports thrived, laborers and locals alike suffered under Dutch colonization. In the 1860s and 1870s, a coffee leaf rust epidemic tore through the island, devastating the large plantations. The Dutch abandoned their plantations and the laborers began to take over small plots of land. This smallholder growing structure still exists on the island today. 

This washed coffee is grown deep in the forest in the Western portion of Java. The farm, led by Pak Dudy A. Busyori, is only accessible by modified off-road motorbikes. After being picked, it is transported down the mountain by bike, then truck, towards the town of Ciwidey to the Kebun Bintoha Washing Sation for further processing. 

 In the past, we have not sourced many coffees from this region of the world. With younger producers pushing innovation and quality, we are seeing fruit-forward and clean coffees unlike ever before. Indonesia is a complex origin to work in, with its diverse social and political culture. But that makes these coffees all the more compelling. To say we are honored to have this coffee is an understatement. Dial into satiny flavors of violet candies and chocolate milk by starting with a 1:16.5 brew ratio, filtered water at 206-208℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle
