You may be wondering why coffee is sometimes called java. The term itself actually means "coffee grown on the island of Java," and Java is the largest of the Indonesian islands. These Java 'Dutch Estate' coffee beans have a piquant aroma and offer a quick finish with a zingy tinge and a chocolately undertone that will make you understand why everyone wants to attribute their coffee to be 'Java.'
Grown in volcanic soil at 4, 500 feet, this medium roast has a classic Indonesian coffee flavor. However, coffee cultivation hasn't always come easy to Indonesia. With the Dutch originally bringing Arabica coffee plants over, the Arabic did not grow as well as the people of Indonesia wished. Instead of giving up on coffee production, the people of Indonesia and Java sought after a different kind of coffee bean tree and discovered Liberica beans. To this day, Indonesia's Java 'Dutch Estate' coffee beans still come from these successfully growing trees.
In Java, it is tradition to share a cup of coffee with any visitors that come to your house. With Java 'Dutch Estate' you can keep it to yourself or share if you want, but regardless, you will bask in the sweet flavor, heavy aroma, and feel indulged in the chocolate undertones.
