Java Kayumas Taman Dadar is sourced from family-owned farms located near the villages of Curah Tatal and Kayumas on the island of Java, Indonesia. Smallholder organic coffee production is atypical of the region which is dominated by large government run coffee estates established by the Dutch in the 18th century as one of the first coffee-producing regions outside of East Africa and Arabia. A massive rust outbreak in the late 19th century wiped out a considerable part of the coffee crops. Cultivation began again at higher elevations, where rich volcanic soil and high elevation provided excellent growing conditions for specialty coffee.
Taman Dadar (meaning “flower garden)” aptly describes the way smallholder coffee is cultivated, colorfully inter-cropped with beans, avocados, Erythrina, Albizia, and Leucaena trees, which produce food for local consumption and shade. Java Taman Dadar is “wet-hulled,” a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed, producing a hallmark Indonesian flavor.
The flavor profile is earthy but clean, with notes of butterscotch, dark chocolate, walnut and peat in a superbly rich, bold cup.
Organically grown and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
