    Green Bean
  1. hallo titan_uk Indonesian farmers rarely use aging their beans for a long time, usually traders do that technique. aging beans for long time period didn't provide more benefits. genetically Indonesia coffee sent by the Dutch governor in Malabar (India) seedling to the Dutch governor of Batavia (now Jakarta) in 1696. so there's slightly similar between the malabar and java coffee. but in the matter of taste, it may now be quite different titan. are you interested ?
  2. thank you so much for responding my comment Glenn, as we know sometimes bad news is a good news in media perspective. but unfortunately the unfair trade practices still exist in other parts of the world, including in Indonesia. hopefully with the forums like this, can be a trigger point for fair trade practices to all. thank you coffeechap i'm extremely happy you are visited my thread. honestly this is my first time I intend to export to the UK, previously we just export in Asia and the Arab region. can't wait receives an order from you thank you so much Brewdog, it's nice to know you. best regards Iman
  3. I think that's not true in west java, but i don't know if there's happen in another area. West Java has association of farmers who are committed to fair trade, and it is not an easy movement. we have to go through a complicated bureaucratic barricades, so it can be like this now. as long as farmers have direct access to the buyer, then the brokering practices that are not profitable for farmers can be reduced. so the farmers have a strong bargaining position. i'm so happy to hear that you are already tasted Indonesian coffee. i hope you'll taste ours too. as we all know, coffee has its own uniqueness even though it planted in the same area, coffee would have some significant differences. best regards Iman

Thanks DFK 41 for your suggestions and input for me. to be honest I’m still confused to provide more in-depth information regarding buying and selling process that I have done so far, because I was afraid to violate the existing rules at this forum. perhaps for the first step I will seek advice from Glenn about buying and selling procedure in this forum. or if you don’t mind, you can enclose your email here or pm. thank you for your attention dfk41, it's nice to know you. best regards iman

  9. thank you for your warm welcome glenn, we just planted arabica varieties in our plantation, and our main markets is for export. there is absolutely no problem if in this forum does not have a lot of bean buyers, I just want to make a good relationship in the UK coffee culture, but if you want to try my coffee, I would love to share, and do not worry about the quantity I will provide the small scale, and quality-oriented for u guys. hi taff, thank you for your question. Java has a unique position among Indonesian coffees. It is the original coffee planting area, with coffee coming to Batavia (Jakarta) and being planted in the area of Bandung ciwidey, early in the Dutch colonial era. The arabica coffee plant was brought to Indonesia from India in 1696. Java coffee had a legendary status around the world until the last century. Mocha and Java coffees commanded huge premiums, often 10x to 15x more expensive than Brazil coffees in brokers lists from the 1920s. Aside from history, Java is unique in that it is most often natural processed. This cleaning method is also called natural process or unwashed. Simply put, the core of this process is the drying of whole coffee fruit with seed in it-like-drying grapes into raisins by drying in the sun. This process allows the natural fermentation that make up the final flavor profile of coffee. In this method, the beans began to separate from the fruit and dried skin in the later stages, namely grinding. Characteristics results of the process: smooth, soft body, medium acidity, with flavors berry crisp. in addition we also typically use wet processed, so the cup is relatively clean, without earthy or dirty flavors found in some lower grade coffee Indonesia such as Sumatra hulled wet. Characteristics of process results: a balanced, clean, and bright / vibrant, with a soft fruity essences. Our farms are located in West Java in the vicinity of the mount cibeber. The range of altitudes suitable for coffee production is at an more than 1,600 meters above sea level, air temperature 15-21 C, rainfall of 2000 mm / year which is very suitable for Arabica coffee productivity. hi Mr O my favourite color for the cherries is red and light-brown for roasted beans
