Red ripe cherries are hand selected and then floated in a water tank to further select the highest quality cherries by density. The cherries are pulped within 6 hours of harvest and then dry-fermented for an average of 16 hours, washed, and then dried first in tanks and then on cement patios in the sun. The link between Java and coffee goes back to the late 1600s when the Dutch introduced coffee to the island of Java, making it the first place outside of Ethiopia and Arabia where coffee was cultivated. The coffee industry grew exponentially but disaster struck in the late 1800s when leaf rust disease decimated the crops. Over a twenty-year period, most of Java’s Arabica plantations were wiped out, with some being replaced by Robusta. It looked as if the Javanese Arabica would be lost to the world, but some survived growing in the highlands. Thanks to extensive public and private involvement, Javanese Arabica has recovered significantly.
