The Bayukidul Estate is a 100 hectare coffee plantation located in the heart of East Java amongst small-hold clove and sugar cane farms. The coffee is grown at some 900-1,200m around the village of Bondowoso, on the lower slopes of two active volcanoes. This terrain is highly fertile and ideal for growing these specialty coffees.
During the 1600s, the Dutch introduced coffee to Southeast Asia. They brought coffee trees to places like Bali and Sumatra, where it’s still grown today. Another island they began planting coffee on was Java, and it’s from this island that the name “java” arose.
