Indonesian & Asian Coffee Beans

Indonesia, Australia, India and Vietnam produce a great variety of coffee beans, which vary in flavour enormously. Java and Sumatran coffee beans (Indonesian Coffee regions) are prized for their richness, full body, long finish, earthiness and gentle acidity.

Indian coffee is typically wet-processed and is smooth, sweet, and medium bodied. Indian monsooned coffee mutes the acidity and has a heavier body often appropriate to add depth to an espresso blend. If you are interested in buying a monsooned coffee then the best is Monsooned Malabar, which can be bought online. Our Vietnamese coffee is 100% Arabica and has good body and strength with a hint of pepper and spice. It is ideal for the popular Heavy French roast styles.

    This coffee comes with a gentle warning: described as a brute of a coffee and not for the fainthearted, it is heavy by name and heavy by nature. The dark roasting of this coffee brings out smoky, earthy tones but as it is 100% Arabica it wont leave you with a "Robusta headache."

    Facts

    Coffee was introduced to Vietnam in 1857 by the French and the country slowly grew as producer of coffee in Asia. Vietnam is now the second largest coffee producer in the world after Brazil, accounting for 14.3% of the world market share. Large quantities of Robusta are grown in the tropical south of the country for the instant coffee and blending markets. Less well-known, however, is that Vietnam also produces high quality Arabicas too. The North of the country has a climate of cold winters and showers particularly suited to Arabica cultivation.

    Taste

    Full-bodied and refreshing, Arabicas from Indonesia are some of the world's best. This Java Jampit Government Estate coffee has earthy tones leading to creaminess but with a bolder hint of fruity acidity and a stronger dark cocoa aftertaste. This is excellent in the cafetiere or aeropress and works well with milk or cream.

    Facts

    Government Estate coffee is recognised as being of higher quality. In processing, the ripe cherries are taken straight to the mills after being harvested and undergo a wet processing method which results in a heavy-bodied, good and sweet coffee.

    Coffee is produced throughout the Indonesian archipelago and Java is one of the great names in coffee history. Coffee trees were introduced to Indonesia by the Dutch in the mid-seventeenth century although it is rumoured that Java coffee was sold in Amsterdam as early as 1712. Today Indonesia produces nearly 7 million bags of coffee a year and top-grade Arabicas are still produced on Java as well as on Sumatra, Sulawesi, and Flores.

    This Java Government Estate coffee produces a syrupy, full-bodied espresso or Americano which is not for the fainthearted. It is also great with milk, still cutting through to give a bold, brave shot. Earthy tones lead to a bitter dark chocolate and the dark roast delivers strong flavours and spice.

    Taste

    This Indian coffee is complicated and intense with its smoky, moist, cigar, earthy flavours adding to an already earthy and smoky bean. Traditionally a brewed coffee, it is worth trying as an espresso; if only for the complete craziness. Not to everyone's taste, but definitely an experience of a coffee.

    Facts

    Monsoon Malabar is one of the most popular and well-known Indian single origins due to its unusual processing method and distinctive flavour. The beans are picked, dried, then left to age in open huts against the monsoon season Indian weather. The result is a distinctive yellow coloured bean. Monsoon Malabar (Malabar, along with Mysore, is a region) is graded in size and quality, with AA grade being the highest.

    India is the 7th Largest coffee producing country in the world with most produced in the hill tracts of South Indian states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. An Indian Muslim pilgrim, Baba Budan, brought the first seeds to India from Mecca (Saudi Arabia) in around AD 1600.

    Takengon is a remote town situated in the region of Aceh, deep in the Gayo Highlands of northern Sumatra. It is an area famed for coffee production: the highlands are the largest producing area of Arabica in Indonesia, with a vast area of 84,000 hectares planted in three districts - Aceh Tengah, Bener Meriah and Gayo Lues. It has beautiful scenery, and is known for the lush mountainous terrain that surround small fishing communities around the landmark of Lake Taut Tawar, at around 1100 metres above sea level.

    In the rural areas that lie north-west of the lake is Lampahan, a small coffee producing town that sits between 1300 and 1400 masl. There are 372 smallholder producers in the area, each cultivating coffee on farms an average size of 1 hectare each. Varieties grown include Catimor, Caturra and Timor Hybrid (also known as "Tim Tim"). A shade canopy and companion planting of staple food crops is found throughout the area, along with diverse indigenous wildlife.

    Coffees from Sumatra are known for their balanced and intense smooth, sweet body. This Fairtrade certified Gegarang is deep and full-bodied with a tangerine sweetness layered with heavy chocolate. We recommend this one rests for a few days after roasting to ensure the flavours are allowed to develop.

    Facts

    The history of Gegarang village was part of the Indonesian transmigration program that brought many Javanese people initially to the northern region of Aceh around Lake Tawar to reduce the over population of Java during the 1980s. The village has 46 members who grow their organic coffee on plots of around one hectare at an altitude of 1,500 to 1,600 metres above sea level; other crops include potatoes and beans. Gegarang village is only 4 kilometres from Jagong and is situated between Takengon and Lake Tawar.

    Coffee was planted in Sumatra by Dutch colonialists in the late 1600s under the guidance of the Dutch East India Trading Company. With Europe's ever-increasing thirst for coffee at that time this commodity played an important role in the trade of Indonesia, as indeed it does today.

    Facts

    Vietnam is the second largest coffee producer in the world although most of this is Robusta for the instant coffee and blending markets, its Arabica production is little known. The South of the country belongs to the hot and moisture tropical climate and is suitable for Robusta cultivation. The North, with cold winter and showers, is suitable for Arabica cultivation.
