About the region

Producing Region

Islands of Sumatra and Java as well as Flores, Bali, Sulawesi

Harvest

October - March

The first coffee seedlings arrived in Indonesia in 1699 from the Dutch before first exports were sent to Europe by the Dutch East India Company in 1711.

Cultivation continued from strength to strength along with their reputation for producing fantastically complex coffees. Indonesia is most blessed in its geography which creates unique micro-climates perfect for coffee cultivation – rolling hilltops and volcanic mountains just south of the equator.

The majority of Robusta is produced in Southern Sumatra whereas Arabica is grown predominately in North Sumatra as well as Indonesia’s eastern islands such as Bali, Flores and Sulawesi.

Our Indonesian coffee range benefits from Dariusz’s time spent growing coffee there. His extensive personal networks among the growers and regular visits ensure what we buy is the best available. Nothing typifies an outstanding Indonesian coffee more than our Blue Bianca, scrupulously sourced and managed from seedling to processing.
