Indonesia Old Brown Java Green Coffee Beans for Home Roasting


Green beans carefully selected for your home roasting.

This Java bean originates from small holders primarily based within the Ljen region in the Java islands. This is a wonderfully rich and full-bodied coffee with an immense flavour profile and should be carefully roasted in order to bring out the smokey earthy flavours.

Decaf tasting notes




Old Brown Java was traditionally used as ballast on sailing ships travelling to Europe in the 16th and 17th Centuries, where the sea water gave the coffee a distinct flavour. Aged over a period of 5 years, this ‘monsooned’ green coffee is grown on the old colonial estates on the east end of Java Island in Indonesia. These green coffee beans which are milled but not yet roasted are exposed to the region’s moist, warm air throughout the rainy season resulting in a this naturally matured bean with a stronger taste and weakened acidity. The unroasted beans show a distinct colour change from the original green tint of the coffee beans to a light brown colour.
