To the east of Manggarai, lies a town which features natural hot springs and is famous for its volcanic scenery. The name is Bajawa. You may have heard of the name before, since Bajawa is also famous for its coffee. In Bajawa, coffee is grown 1000-1500 meters above sea level with 2500 mm annual precipitation rate. Its local microclimate indeed is the determining factor of the uniquely tasty coffee which causes Flores Bajawa coffee to receive attention and gain popularity earlier than Flores Manggarai coffee.
It is with pride and excitement that we announce we are officially venturing to Bajawa. Despite being in the same island of Flores, Bajawa has different values and cultures from Manggarai which means we will have a bunch of new things to learn and experience with local coffee farmers there.
Now, you may wonder, what makes Flores Bajawa coffee different?
The acidity of Flores Bajawa coffee beans is on medium level which makes them friendly to the stomach, especially for those who don’t drink coffee heavily or simply have weak stomachs. Moreover, there is also a hint of sweetness. Thanks to its volcanic ground, Flores Bajawa coffee beans also have a nutty taste which is something that peanut lovers will come to love. However, the aftertaste is uniquely tobacco-like. To top it off, our commitment to always carefully select and process our beans is the guarantee that you will have the best quality of Flores Bajawa coffee.
While there is nothing wrong with imagining one sip of a cup of the flavourful Flores Bajawa coffee, getting your hand on it sounds so much better.
