This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms in Java, Indonesia, particularly around the Kayumas and Curah Tatal villages. Coffee was first cultivated in Java in the 17th century, but 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. Though large government-run plantations are common, this lot is produced by smallholder farmers who also produce other crops for income diversity. Taman Dadar, meaning “flower garden,” aptly describes this production method.
