Gourmet Asian & Indonesian Coffee Beans
Arabica coffee beans tend to flourish throughout most of East Asia and Indonesia so it is not surprising that Indonesian coffee ranks in fourth place in terms of total coffee production for the world market.
Gourmet Arabica coffee beans from East Asia and Indonesia such as Sumatra, Yemen, Java and Sulawesi coffees are revered by coffee lovers everywhere. In fact, some avid coffee drinkers are astute enough to recognize Asian and Indonesian coffees simply by their taste.
Asian coffee beans and Indonesian coffee beans share similar qualities and are very well known for their earthy, aromatic flavor, light acidity and rich, full bodied taste.
Many factors come into play in determining the different characteristics of gourmet coffee beans from Asia and Indonesia. Characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, caffeine level and acidity are all influenced by;
- variety of coffee plant
- local soil conditions
(coffee plants flourish in rich, volcanic soils of Indonesia)
- local climate and weather conditions
(hot and humid subtropical weather is best)
- growing season and temperature
- elevation of the coffee farm
(Asia & India are famous for their mountain grown coffees)
- whether or not the coffee plants are shade grown
- how the coffee beans are harvested
(handpicked & hand sorted)
- how the coffee beans are processed
(wet or dry processed)
- the degree of roasting
(darker roasts will mask local taste characteristics)
Even coffees from different regions of Asia and Indonesia will have distinctive characteristics from one another.
