Village/Estate- Technically this is another village coffee, although we buy the green bean from a cooperative that we have worked with since 2001. Merdeka Coffee was the very first Specialty Coffee Roaster to pioneer this now well known Arabica.
The coffee is grown in the Wamena district, a remote mountainous area in Irian Jaya. From the town you can see snow capped peaks….and we are in the tropics remember! The bean has the honey earthed mellowness of a good Arabica Java, along with a well balanced body. Aroma is burnt chocolate with a tad of liquorice and apricot. The bean is dry processed and we roast to a medium roast to allow the bean to retain the flavors and ripeness that make it one of our favorites.
