For centuries, the world has known about this Eastern Archipelago. It’s a fertile land, abundant with natural resources and is so well-known for its exotic products that it became known hundreds of years ago as “the spice island.” Today Indonesia remains rich; not only in resources but in its varied cultures. The country is a paradise for visitors who never fail to marvel at the beauty of its scenery, the variety of its arts, and the warmth of its people.
The beginning of the coffee industry in Indonesia can be traced back to the arrival of Arabica coffee on the shore of Java in 1699. Although the native farmers of Java were the first to cultivate Arabica, it soon spread throughout many provinces of Indonesia. By 1712, years of harvesting provided the first bag of Indonesian coffee to be exported to Amsterdam. Over the years, as exports have grown, so has the reputation of Java coffee.
