Our business focuses primarily in West Java Grade 1 / Specialty Arabica Green Coffee Beans. The definition of Specialty Grade 1 according to SCAA Arabica Coffee Classification: no primary defects, 0-3 full defects, sorted with a maximum of 5% above and 5% below specified screen size or range of screen size, and exhibiting a distinct attribute in one or more of the following areas: taste, acidity, body, or aroma.
Javanero works closely with a small group of farmers of West Java highlands, located between 1,300-1,500m above sea level, who are dedicated to cultivate Arabica coffee trees and to pick the ripe coffee cherries by hands. Our coffee wet-processing facility is located in the village of Gamboeng, about 40km south of the City of Bandung, West Java.
In our wet processing, the outer skin of the coffee cherry is removed immediately after harvesting using a mechanical pulper, which “pick” or scrape away just the very outer layer of the cherry, leaving behind the parchment coffee covered in sticky mucilage.
