A coffee leaf rust plague in 1876 wiped out most of the original Arabica Typica variety.The Dutch responded by replacing the Arabica coffee with Liberica and subsequently with Robusta – which are hardier plants.After their independence in 1945, efforts were made to revitalized Arabica cultivation through introduction of new varieties by the government and various development programs.Today, the five largest estates in Java are Blawan, Jampit, Pancoer, Kayumas and Tugosari.Although these old colonial-era plantations provide just a fraction of the coffee grown on the island; they produce primarily the higher-valued Arabica variety.These estates transport ripe cherries quickly to their mills after harvest. The pulp is then fermented and washed off, using the wet process, with rigorous quality control.CharacteristicsA good Java has a good, heavy body and a sweet overall impression. They are sometimes rustic in their profiles, but display a lasting finish.At their best, they are smooth and supple and sometimes have a subtle herbaceous note in the aftertaste.Want to learn more about Coffee Origins?
