Indonesian coffee is now ranked fourth in the world's largest in terms of production. Indonesia's coffee history allegedly came from the story Muslim pilgrims returning from the Middle East brought coffee beans to India in early 1600.
In 1696, the Dutch brought coffee to Batavia, in what is now Java. Batavia soon became the main supplier of coffee to Europe. Sumatran coffee beans are some of the heaviest, smoothest, and most complex coffees in the world. The Toraja region is the source of most of the high quality Sulawesi coffee. Java Indonesia coffee does not display the same body and richness as coffees from Sumatra or Sulawesi since most Java coffee is wet-processed. There is, however, a slight spicy-smokiness evident in some Java coffee to set it apart from its neighbors.
