About this coffee
This exceptional coffee is grown in the foothills of Mount Argopuro in the Situbondo Regency of the East Java Province of Java Island. The villagers who grow the coffee come from Tlogosari Village, and together form the Pokmas Walida Cooperative led by Pak Muhlisin. The cooperative partners with exporter, Belift Green Beans, to bring high-quality, transparent coffees like this one to new markets. This naturally processed coffee is painstakingly cared for in the extremely humid environment to ensure consistency and quality. This coffee was dried on raised beds for 15-16 days and stirred once every hour before being patio dried for an additional 8-10 days.
Most coffee farmers in Indonesia grow a very small amount of coffee alongside crops like tomatoes, chili peppers, and ginger. The combined remoteness of their farms and fragmented production system have made it very difficult to trace Indonesian coffee. The team at Belift, however, are working directly with the farming communities in Argopuro and Bondowoso and are hands-on with every step of production, from seed to processing to export.
The East Java Konang Spring Natural continues to be one of the most expressive and exciting coffees available in the Marketplace. This year's lot is very fruit-forward, bright, and syrupy with a clean finish. Lighter roast styles produce tart fruit notes like cherry, raspberry, and stone fruit, rounded out with notes of raw sugar, maple syrup and medjool date. This coffee retains some dried fruit character in darker roasts, but shifts towards deeper notes of wine, milk chocolate, burnt sugar, and nougat. Excellent as a bright and fruity pour-over, but we think this coffee really shines as a creamy espresso that tastes like chocolate covered raspberries.
Is your coffee FDA approved?
Yes, all of our coffee is FDA approved.
Can you really grind my coffee the way I want it?

Why is your coffee so inexpensive if it's true gourmet coffee?
We offer our premium coffees as ground and whole bean, roasted or green, from select farms for a lower price when compared with other premium gourmet coffee offerings. We offer these rare coffees at a great discount. After we import we roast the beans ready for you to enjoy. Although we could charge a lot more for our coffee, we choose to take another approach. We sell on volume. By selling more coffee for less profit, rather than less coffee at higher profit, we actually come out even either way. With this in mind, we choose to offer our coffee for less, which means we move more inventory so the coffee is always fresh and newly picked from the farms, plus you benefit because you save money on premium gourmet specialty coffees.
What farm does your famous brand coffee come from?
We source the beans from many tiny family farms. Some at high elevation with shade grown coffee fields that flourish on the edge of the mountains and some at medium elevation with full sun. The workers hand pick every coffee cherry, and hand wash them too. Matter of fact, they do it all by hand right down to the drying of the beans in natural sunlight with beans spread over wooden planks. The same way it was done hundreds of years ago, an old world method. No automated picking machines or careless processing. Hand selected beans, among the best anywhere in the world. We are sure you can not get coffee of this quality for the price we offer it anywhere else. We focus on environmentally friendly processing that is good for the surrounding habitat.
