Indonesia is the world’s largest island country, consisting of over 17,000 individual islands, historically called Nusantara, among which include Java and Sumatra. This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Surya Abadi Kayumas cooperative, which operates around the village of Kayumas on the island of Java.

Coffee production in this region is often dominated by large government run coffee estates, first established by the Dutch in the 18th century. This lot, however, is quite the opposite as it was cultivated by 66 small producers whose average farm size is around 5 acres. The coffee’s hallmark Indonesian profile is the product of wet- hulling, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed.
