Caffe Pronto Coffee Roastery
Java Blawan Estate
|East Java, Indonesia.
A delicate - perhaps overly so - coffee that nevertheless rewards attentiveness to its subtle, complex aromatics: floral tones and a pungent note suggesting the fresh odor of tomato vines, with background suggestions of cocoa and white wine. A heavy astringency lurks in the mouthfeel that unfortunately dominates in the long finish as the heady aromatics fade.
Blawan is one of several large, traditional coffee estates originally founded by the Dutch but now operated by the Indonesian government in the mountains of East Java. Caffe Pronto is a cafe-roastery and an espresso bar with a mission that emphasizes quality and service. Visit
