Java Dutch Estate Gourmet Coffee
The Java Dutch Estate gourmet coffee is a well balanced, medium roast coffee. It has a heavy body with a slight chocolate taste making this an exquisite coffee.
In 1696 Nicolaas Witson of Amsterdam was unhappy because coffee could not be grown in the Dijon region of Francs. He thought the climate of Indonesia would be more suited to growing the Arabica beans. The first attempt at growing the beans were in Jakarta. Heavy rains washed the seedlings away. He made another attempt about 3 yrs later. Only this time he planted the seeds in Java which lead to success. In the early 1800's all verities of coffees became infested with leaf rust except the Dutch Estate variety of Arabica beans. The Dutch Estate beans were leaf rust resistant. The Dutch Estate Arabica beans still grow today and produce delicious cup today.

Can I Store My Coffee in the Bag it Came in?
You will receive your coffee in a sealed bag with a one way valve. The valve is important because coffee releases gases for about 3 days after it has been roasted. These gasses need to escape the bag. You can store your coffee in the same bag if you seal the bag closed tightly and use the whole bag with in one week. If you purchase more coffee than you will use in one week, we suggest you read our article on "How to Store Coffee" for more suggestions.
