This is a Grade 1 wet hulled coffee, aged for 36 months, cultivated in the Mamasa valley in the western province of Sulawesi. It was the Dutch government that introduced the process of aging coffee from the East Indies for 2-3 years and the “brownish” beans came to be associated by consumers with high quality and a “mellow” cup. Later, this coffee would assume the moniker “Old Government Java.” Aged coffee became so popular that when disease decreased supply from Java and Sumatra to the point that producers could ill-afford to sit on coffee, they began to “sweat” coffee during its 4-5-month voyage, much of it through the tropics, as an alternative to aging. The coffee would be sealed in the hold of cargo ships to sweat during the voyage, arriving brown. The darker brown the coffee, the higher the price paid. In fact, if a captain managed to deliver “extra brown” coffee, they were paid a bonus..

Ride Review

I discovered this at South Holston River Lodge about 7 years ago. It is the only coffee I have bought ever since. It is rich and not bitter like so many other coffees.
