Old Brown Java single origin coffee beans | intense, whiskey, smoked oak


A uniquely special naturally matured bean with an immense flavour profile – rich and full bodied with whiskey, smoked barrel notes and earthy tones. Roasted at Iron & Fire to really bring out the immense earthy rich tones reminiscent of dark smokey libraries and billiard tables. Stunning and perhaps not for the faint-hearted! A great digestif after a hearty meal – perhaps enjoy with a Cuban cigar… stunning.

Old Brown Java 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.
