Indonesia - Java Old Brown
Matured for six years. A full bodied coffee - earthy and spicy with tobacco notes with a hint of sweetness and no acidity.
Grown on the volcanic island of Java in Indonesia, the coffee's distinctive taste is achieved through the unique ageing process of the beans. On their journey to maturity, the beans change from green to brown, hence their name.
In the 16th and 17th centuries, the raw beans were packed as ballast in the holds of sailing ships as they carried spices to Europe. The result was a rich, full-bodied coffee bean, tempered by the wood and the salt of the sea. Today, the beans are aged for up to 6 years underground, producing the same robust full-bodied taste, with a hint of sweetness and no acidity.
Old Brown Java's intense earthiness is unique. For many, it is the only coffee to drink. Its strong, intense flavour makes it perfect for espressos, ideal for a cappuccino or latte.
Sometimes called Old Government Java.
