From the Sunda region of Java, this naturally processed lot is alive with exotic flavour. The highlands of Indonesia have a 300-year history of coffee production, this area of Indonesia offers a variety of Typica that is nearly a century old, with flavour that is totally unique. Processing balanced naturals (dried in cherry) is difficult in Indonesia due to the humidity, but Radiophare is a true stand out: notes of passion fruit, cinnamon, and lemon curd.

    The Cup

    Processing good naturals is rare in Indonesia and the profile of this cup is really exciting: Notes of passionfruit, cinnamon and cane sugar are immediately apparent. With cooling, flavours of sweet plum and raisin start to come through. A subtle acidity balances out this coffee that has a velvety mouthfeel and a lemon curd finish.

    About The Farm

    Klasik Beans is a cooperative founded in 2008 by a group of producers in Puntang (Java). This small cooperative shares a very similar philosophy to Belco, from a quality, human and environmental point of view. The cooperative's aim is to preserve Indonesian cultural heritage through the creation of sustainable, organic and fair trade coffees. Production must adhere to good farming practices (today production is almost organic and totally under shade).

    The Process

    Historically, Indonesia has processed their coffees using the wet hull method. In the last couple of years there has been a push on employing a wider variety of processing techniques, including the natural process. Eko Purnomowidi, who heads up Klasik Beans has implemented the infrastructure at the mills to allow them the opportunity to employ this process. Klasik Beans Collective prioritize the environment in all steps of their farming. All of their coffee is exclusively shade grown under the canopy of a healthy tree polyculture.
