This fully-washed coffee was produced by a group of farmers who cultivate plots of land in a unique agroforestry model near the village of Tenjolaya in West Java.
The Flavor Profile
A distinct cup with notes of fresh blackberry, molasses and exceptional honeyed sweetness.
Java is an island within the archipelago of Indonesia, and it was the first place coffee was cultivated in the country, brought by the Dutch in the 1600s. In many parts of Indonesia, particularly Sumatra, coffee is processed using a traditional wet-hulling method. By contrast, this coffee from West Java is fully washed, highlighting unique cup characteristics.
In this production model, coffee producers cultivate land in protected forest blocks that have been designated for sustainable agriculture. Coffee is encouraged because it limits soil erosion compared to other crops. Stumptown’s Java Tenjolaya is a selection of coffees grown in the Tenjolaya Ciwidey forest block, which represents 63 producers. We first started purchasing coffee from this group in 2018 and we’re thrilled to offer a washed Java again as a single origin coffee.
