Black Honey Processed from Ciwidey

Refreshing mix of berry and citrus 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, labors 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. Many were abandoned by the Dutch and the laborers began to take over small plots of land. This smallholder growing structure still exists on the island today. 

This black honey processed 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 it transported down the mountain by bike, then truck, towards the town of Ciwidey to the Pikole Camp Washing Station. 

Black honey is the most labor intensive and expensive of all honey processing, a process that involves leaving some of the mucilage on the bean during drying. Black honey coffees require a longer drying time, up to 15 days, and constant monitoring throughout. The result is a sweet, fruity cup with strong notes of berry, maple syrup, and sweet meyer lemon. We recommend a 1:16 brew ratio, filtered water at 208-210℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.
