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.

Old Brown Java Dark Roast

Since trying OBJ dark roast twice now, it really has come up trumps in being my favourite coffee, especially bean to cup. Redber are amazingly accurate in all their coffee descriptions, and top service.

strong and dark

Have not ordered this bean for sometime, had forgotten just how strong, dark with a lovely finish it was. A perfect cup to get you started in the morning, or to refresh you later in the day.

First time buyer’s experience

I was looking for a coffee bean supplier/roaster locally for a gift for a friend. Although Redber are not the nearest, they offer a comprehensive range and easy to use website, so they got the order which was delivered exactly as promised and as described. The friend is delighted with the gift; I will return on my own account
