This aged and monsoonedcoffee bean develops flavours of it's storage as it pales, expect syrup tones with hints of spice and pipe tobacco smoke.
Old Brown Java is an aged, monsooned coffee grown on the old colonial estates on the east end of Java Island in Indonesia.
Old Brown Java is the coffee of dark burgundy libraries and billiard tables. Aged over a period of five years, over which time the beans are transformed from green to brown, this is an old boys’ blend which calls for the very best Cuban cigar.
The unique ageing process was discovered in the 16th century, back when the Dutch introduced the first coffee seeds to the island of Java in Indonesia. As the spice ships carried their cargo back to Europe, the raw beans would be stored away in the hold to act as ballast. After several months at sea, the result was a robust, full-bodied bean, tempered by the wood and the brine to produce an exceptional earthiness of flavour with a hint of sweetness.
