Java Kayumas Estate by Orleans Coffee Review |
  • Orleans Coffee Exchange

    Kenner, Louisiana
  • Java Kayumas Estate

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2010
Origin: East Java, Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Intense nut-toned aroma with complications of fruit, milky cocoa, and more faintly, earth and aromatic wood. In the cup, delicate mouthfeel, soft acidity, simple yet refined flavors of caramel, nut, and hints of flowers and pungent grapefruit. Flavor fades in the finish to a dry, bittersweet chocolate.

Notes: Most Java coffees are produced, like this one, on large government-operated estates in the mountains of East Java. These farms were established by the Dutch and are quite traditional in their procedures and operation. Founded in 1983, Orleans Coffee Exchange is a quality-oriented wholesale roaster that supplies coffee to many New Orleans coffee houses, restaurants and hotels. It survived the Katrina crisis through the passion and dedication of its owners and the loyalty of its customers, and continues to roast outstanding and distinctive coffees.

Who Should Drink It: A quietly complex everyday cup.


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.
