Jalapa, Guatemala’s rich soils and high altitudes are ideal for growing high-quality coffee. The region is perhaps, less well-known than Guatemala’s more renowned coffee regions of Antigua, Acatenango and Huehuetenango, but the climate here lends itself to high grown Arabica production just as well. This relative anonymity is part of what makes this coffee such great value.
Farm in the region are overwhelmingly small-scale (usually under 5 hectares) and usually are managed with the entire family pitching in at key points during the year. Coffee is shade-grown, and most families still grow ‘traditional’ varieties are slowly being introduced. Coffee is the main cash crop for most families, where the majority of other agriculture is geared towards subsistence. Crops such as maize and beans are common.
West Java, Indonesia coffee is wet processed coffee grown on the island of Java in Indonesia, mostly on the east side in the Ijen volcano complex on the ijen Plateau at elevations around 1,400 metres.
Our finest Java coffee comes from plantations on the five largest estates established by the Dutch government in the 18th century when Java was part of the Dutch East Indies.
A Fine Java coffee has low-toned richness that is typical of Indonesian, but with a full body that is clean and thick, and medium acidity along with earthy qualities, but less earthy than some other Indonesian coffee.
Java coffee leaves a sweet impression overall, very smooth and supple.
