Old Brown Java, is also known as Old Brown coffee, or Old Government Java. The coffee is grown on the old colonial estates on the east end of Java Island in Indonesia.
Old Brown Java was traditionally used as ballast on sailing ships travelling to Europe in the 17 & 18 hundreds, where the sea water gave the coffee a distinct flavour. Its mild acidity, heavy-bodied taste and sweetness is still attained through a weathering process which can take from 2 to 7 years.
The green coffee beans which are milled but not yet roasted and are then exposed to the region’s moist, warm air throughout the rainy season. The ‘monsooning’ process results in a strengthening of the coffee’s taste, a weakening of the acidity.
The flavour of these Arabica coffee beans is truly unique, in spiciness. The musky complex aromas are matched by the rustic earthy flavour notes. The long finish and big body makes this coffee especially impressive
