Coffee beans of Indonesia are growing in an ideal environment as the country is located very close to the equator with multiple islands and mountains scattered across the country creating unique microclimates. That is why Indonesian coffee beans are delivering such a diversification of the beverage's tastes and are very popular in many countries. First historic coffee exports from Indonesia are going back to 1711, when Dutch initials VOC sent 2,000 pounds to Europe. In 2014 Indonesia turned to be 4th largest producer of coffee in the world with 1,200,000 pounds of coffee produced.
The major coffee producing islands are: Sumatra (Mandheling, Lintong and Gayo), Java, Bali, Sumbawa, Sulawesi, Flores and Papua New Guinea. Indonesian coffee is known for its full-body taste, vibrant but gentle acidity with chocolate, cocoa or tobacco notes and a continuous aftertaste.
