$5.50 ˝lb.

In 1699 the Dutch governor in Malabar (India) sent a Yemeni coffee seedling to the Dutch governor of Batavia (now Jakarta). In 1711 the first exports were sent from Java to Europe by the Dutch East India Company, established in 1602. Within 10 years, exports rose to 60 tons per year. Java was the first place, outside of Arabia and Ethiopia, where coffee was widely cultivated. VOC monopolized world coffee trading from 1725 to 1780. This coffee is the true “Java” part of the famous “Mocha Java Blend”. It is produced in an area of Western Java in the mountains west of the city of Bandung called Preanger. It has a creamy mouthfeel with hints of flowers and spices. It has a bright, but very subtle earthy finish as is natural with this semi-washed coffee.
