About the coffee
Hailing from the remote island of Java, lying between Sumatra and Bali in Indonesia, comes Old Brown Java coffee. A fascinating story, with it’s unique ageing process, which was discovered in the 16th century, back when the Dutch introduced the first coffee seeds to the area. As the spice ships carried their cargo back to Europe, the raw beans would be stored away in the hold to act as ballast. After several months at sea, the result was a robust, full-bodied bean, tempered by the wood and the brine to produce an exceptional earthiness of flavour with a hint of sweetness.
