Old Brown Java, is also known as Old Brown coffee, or Old Government Java. The coffee is grown on the old colonial estates on the east end of Java Island in Indonesia. Old Brown Java was traditionally used as ballast on sailing ships travelling to Europe in the 16th and 17th Centuries, where the sea water gave the coffee a distinct flavour.

Its mild acidity, heavy-bodied taste and sweetness is still attained through a weathering process which can take from 2 to 7 years. The green coffee beans which are milled but not yet roasted are then exposed to the region's moist, warm air throughout the rainy season. The 'monsooning' process results in a strengthening of the coffee's taste, a weakening of the acidity. There is also a distinct colour change from the original green tint of the coffee beans to a light brown colour.

Full of Beans

This was ruddy great coffee. The smell, the taste, the warm satisfaction of its brown loveliness. I would have an affair with this coffee if I could, and whisk it away to a Travelodge for a weekend. I shall stop now in case children are reading. Just buy it. It’s good.

Not being sent what was promised

Disappointing. I forgot to add a free bag of coffee to my order but quickly remembered and added to my order. Customer services told me that they would amend my order and I was very happy. When my order arrived without the free coffee I emailed customer services and was told I should remember to include it on the original order next time and that I would not be sent it this time. I explained how disappointed I was (mainly by the fact that I had been told I would get it then not receive it) and was told they they would send it to me. I am still waiting. I have been happy with the service up to now and have had no problems but this has changed my view of the company.
