Coffee was introduced throughout the islands of Indonesia by the Dutch in the 17th century, and Java was one of the first islands to cultivate coffee, which is the reason the word “java” has become slang for “coffee.” Javanese coffees have long been distinct for their herbaceous, complex flavor profiles that contain some acidity and a slightly cleaner cup than, say, a classic Sumatran.
