One century ago, Arabica coffee in West Java used to be the world’s finest coffee. It faded for a while as it was slowly being replaced with tea. Since 2002, when the coffee market recovered, Arabica Coffee in West Java was replanted. Due to agroclimatic advantages and good management, West Java Arabica Coffee plantations yielded a good quantity of specialty coffee. The farm where this coffee is produced by Rimbun Jaya Abadi is located in Kamojang Mountain in West Java, Indonesia. The red cherries are selectively handpicked during the harvest. The coffee from this farm is also environment-friendly as it is planted using the agroforestry-permaculture method and processed using high standards of equipment.
