Estate Java by Batdorf & Bronson Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: April 2007
Origin: East Java, Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A strikingly distinctive coffee that suffers a bit in the finish. Splendid aroma: sweetly and deeply pungent, with floral, chocolate and pipe tobacco notes. In the cup low-toned but vibrant acidity, crisply nut-like with distinct orange notes. The nut notes turn very slightly stiff and dusty in the finish.

Notes: Most Java coffees are produced, like this one, on large government-operated estates in the mountains of East Java. These farms are old and quite traditional in their procedures and operation. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale quality-oriented specialty roaster with roasting locations in both Olympia, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia. Visit or call 800-955-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy things that are exotic but balanced.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
