Coffee has been cultivated on the island of Java since the late 1600s; the first Dutch sailing ships carrying coffee back to Europe can be traced back to 1711. These ships would often stop at the port of Mocha in what is now modern-day Yemen and combine the Javanese coffee with the local production, resulting in the famous Mocha-Java blend. Most of the trees in Java at that time were planted in low-lying areas and by the late 1800s, they had become infested with coffee rust, a defoliant disease that thrives at lower altitudes due to the warmer climate. This was extremely detrimental to the quality and volume of coffee coming out of Java for several decades. This forced coffee production up to the highlands, where volcanic soil and higher altitudes laid the groundwork for a much better crop. Taman Dadar means “flower garden” which is the name the local farmers give to their area. This coffee comes from smallholder farmers in the villages of Curah Tatal and Kayumas on the Ijen Plateau in eastern Java.

The cup is soft and buttery, which is pretty representative of good Javas. It's woodsy aromatic and chocolaty, with a finish that is surprisingly savory, with perhaps a hint of juniper and nutmeg.
