Our Price: £3.55
Product Description

100% Arabica

Old Brown Java

Perfect for: Cafetiere / Filter / Espresso

Strength: Strong

Type: Origin

Region: Far East - Indonesia

Flavour: Matured for up to five years. A full bodied coffee - earthy and spicy with tobacco notes with a hint of sweetness and no acidity.

Old Brown Java Coffee is a coffee to be savoured like a good wine, and definitely a drink for the connoisseur.

Grown on the volcanic island of Java in Indonesia, the coffee's distinctive taste is achieved through the unique ageing process of the beans. On their journey to maturity, the beans change from green to brown, hence their name.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, the raw beans were packed as ballast in the holds of sailing ships as they carried spices to Europe. The result was a rich, full-bodied coffee bean, tempered by the wood and the salt of the sea. Today, the beans are aged for up to 5 years underground, producing the same robust full-bodied taste, with a hint of sweetness and no acidity.

Old Brown Java's intense earthiness is unique. For many, it is the only coffee to drink. Its strong, intense flavour makes it perfect for espressos, ideal for a cappuccino or latte.

Sometimes called Old Government Java

Reviewer: (2024) Margaret from London   5 Stars

Excellent service as usual. Always very good coffee whichever type you choose. Very subjective but you will always find a favourite.

Reviewer: (2023) Louise from Peterborough   5 Stars

This is the best Old Brown Java I’ve ever bought, I’ve been drinking nothing else for years, started having the beans but am getting a little lazy in my old age and buy it ready ground, it doesn’t lose any flavour, rich, dark but not at all bitter, a lovely chocolatey finish, one of life’s little pleasures.

Reviewer: (2022) Gloria from Londonderry   5 Stars

Brilliant service will def use again.

Reviewer: (2022) Nik from Essex   5 Stars

Great coffee and variety and speedy delivery.

Reviewer: (2021) Maria from Rutland   5 Stars

Huge selection of coffee - good delivery service - have only tried two of the coffees and both are excellent - will order again and recommend to friends.

Reviewer: (2021) Stephen from Warwickshire   5 Stars

I have purchased and enjoyed TLOC coffee for some years. The service and reliability are second to none. I find no reason to use other merchants. This is why I have been able to recommend the business to friends and family here and overseas. Great service, great coffee, great times. Thank you TLOC.

Reviewer: (2021) Lorna from Ipswich   5 Stars

I was recommended this website when I purchased a top end bean to cup coffee machine. I’ve been so impressed that I have ordered several times over and will continue to be a regular customer. The choice of beans is incredible and they come well packaged and are delivered very quickly. The website is easy to navigate and I am enjoying trying a wide variety of coffees. Highly recommended!

Reviewer: (2021) Lyn from South Wales   5 Stars

Fantastic service, superb coffee therefore will be placing a further order very soon.

Reviewer: (2021) Lauren from Peterborough   5 Stars

My favourite coffee beans without doubt and The Love of Coffee have the very best ones I have had from anywhere, so I don’t go anywhere else now. Rich, chocolatey, nutty finish, wonderfully strong but never bitter. Perfect.

Reviewer: (2021) Duncan from Southampton   5 Stars

First class products with above first class service as always.

Reviewer: (2020) Doreen from Wigan   5 Stars

Always fantastic service from this company. All different beans are delicious. Thank you.

Reviewer: (2020) Jim from Buckinghamshire   5 Stars

As the only coffee drinker in my household, I find that The Love of Coffee is ideal. I can order my preferred coffee in my preferred quantity and have it arrive within 48 hours. The choice of coffee is amazing and I can vary my choice with each order. Excellent!

Reviewer: (2020) Mrs. Vincent from Warwickshire   5 Stars

Ordered a selection of my favourite coffee beans. I have sampled them all and are exactly to my taste. I received my order very quickly, I will order again.

Reviewer: (2020) Margaret from London   5 Stars

Excellent service from this company. Order arrived quickly and well packaged. The coffee chosen was delicious.

Reviewer: (2020) Jemma from Wiltshire   5 Stars

This was my second order from theloveofcoffee. This time I ordered a different set of coffees and they were just as amazing as my first order. I cannot recommend the variety and quality enough. Delicious.

Reviewer: (2020) Pat from Midlothian   2 Stars

This review is for the coffees rather than the service. The service was good. I ordered six coffees, none of which had I tried before so I kept a review of each one after I'd finished the packet. I'm looking for a delicious coffee I can stick with and order more of on-line, because as I'm shielding I rely heavily on on-line purchases for everything. Old Brown Java: Quite strong with some bitterness, but lacking good coffee flavour 4/10.

Reviewer: (2020) Tony from Hampshire   5 Stars

Lovely coffee, good price and speedy delivery.

Reviewer: (2020) Ian from South Glamorgan   5 Stars

Prompt delivery. Quality product. Changed the whole way I think about coffee.

Reviewer: (2020) Gary from Exeter   5 Stars

What an excellent way to move up from supermarket coffee! Tried Dominican (a little uninspiring for me), Old Brown Java (obviously high quality coffee, but just too "in-your-face" for my taste), Kenya Peaberry (very good) and Guatamala Maragogype Dark Medium which is just what I was looking for, so smooth and full of flavour. As the only one who drinks coffee in the household, the 100g bags worked well for keeping it fresh until needed. The ordering process was easy, delivery was prompt, overall a great experience!

Reviewer: (2020) Ian from Cleveland   5 Stars

A superb service. You certainly take all of the hassle out of buying the most wonderful choice of coffee. The best web site I have used. To top it all the coffee is as good this time as it was last, absolutely delicious. Many thanks.

Reviewer: (2020) Denyse from Ormskirk   5 Stars

Great service. Great coffee. Need I say more!

Reviewer: (2020) Graham from Great Yarmouth    5 Stars

Thanks TLOC. Received my 4 bag selection plus a Decaf after roasting and i have now tried the Old Java and Kenyan Elephant Ears. Really enjoyed trying different coffee’s and settings. Looking forward to trying the others. I will be back for more.

Reviewer: (2020) John from Leicestershire   5 Stars

An excellent roaster where there is access to a wide selection of coffees from around the world which come in at various price points. Several purchases have been made and the products have arrived promptly even with basic postage. Favourite coffees so far are Indian monsoon malabar and the Old brown Java.

Reviewer: (2020) Steve from Warwickshire   5 Stars

An excellent coffee prepared and presented impeccably.

Reviewer: (2020) Stephanie from Cornwall   5 Stars

Reviewer: (2019) Frances from Liverpool   5 Stars

I purchased a variety of Coffee beans as a birthday gift for my hard to buy for elder son. Extremely fast delivery with reasonable charge. He is more than delighted with them. I get regular photos of the different beans and a far he has enjoyed all of them!

Reviewer: (2019) U from NW   5 Stars

Good /speedy service.

Reviewer: (2019) Graham from Leeds   5 Stars

I'm very impressed with the quality and service that's provided. I'm trying out various coffees in smaller quantities initially. Everybody has different tastes so what some people like would not suit others.

Reviewer: (2018) Doug from Wales   5 Stars

Very prompt delivery. I have always enjoyed the coffee from Love of Coffee. I have never had any personal dealing s with the team there, I have always ordered online. My past experience with the coarse ground coffees I have ordered has always been very good.

Reviewer: (2018) Graham from Basildon   5 Stars

Outstanding service. Will definitely use you again.

Reviewer: (2018) Judith from Norwich   5 Stars

My husband loves coffee so for Valentines day I ordered him three small size packets of coffee. What a winner! He loved all the coffee especially one which we are about to order again in a size which will last and we will be ordering another couple of the small packets to try out. What a great way coffee. We love The Love of Coffee!

Reviewer: (2018) Michael from Devon   5 Stars

Service was faultless, as usual. I love the opportunity to sample various blends and flavours. Still working through the menu, but Old Brown Java certainly hits the spot for me!

Reviewer: (2017) Kathryn from Acharacle   5 Stars

The coffee beans and delivery are great.

Reviewer: (2017) Mike from Flintshire, North East Wales   5 Stars

Excellent range of coffees at keen prices. All that's required for a quality caffeine fix. That's why I'm a returning customer.

Reviewer: (2017) Owen from Marlow, Buckinghamshire   5 Stars

Amazing service, well packed and rapid shipping. All coffee was really Roasted and ground to the a great espresso consistency. Really good quality coffee, used a few bags filling nespresso pods to great effect. Worked out at 14p a Pod doing it this way. Would definitely recommend to friends a d family.

Great service!

Reviewer: (2017) Duncan from Hampshire   5 Stars

Thank you for the prompt and efficient service. Even the delivery driver remarked that the "parcel smelled nice!!!!!!!" This is my second order with you and it most certainly will NOT be the last. Excellent coffees - thank you.

Reviewer: (2017) Alan from Cheshire   5 Stars

Ordered Wednesday morning and delivered by Royal Mail Friday morning 2nd class. Enormous selection of coffees to try, I just need to drink more.

Reviewer: (2017) Gavin from Kent   5 Stars

Great choice of coffee with detailed information. Speedy delivery as ever.

Reviewer: (2017) Neil from Liverpool   4 Stars

A very unusual coffee. You can really taste that musky flavor mentioned, just like its been in an old wooded ships hold for seven years! An acquired taste to be sure but I've been drinking it for a month now and have acquired it. It's delicious and different. My second fave coffee so far. Thanks for recommending it.

Reviewer: (2017) Naz from Lancashire   5 Stars

I have bought coffee beans from you several times and you never fail to provide high quality coffee. If you love a dark roast coffee bean, these coffee beans are made for you. Brilliant efficient service and you can smell the coffee emanating from the mail packaging! Good quality, well priced, great taste!

Reviewer: (2017) Peter from Brentwood   5 Stars

Great coffee, excellent service, good price - a winning combination!

Reviewer: (2017) David from Forfar   5 Stars

Reviewer: (2016) Jeff from derb   5 Stars

Excellent coffee and excellent choice. So much fun trying them all out. Amazing to think there are so many differences between them. Great service too.

Reviewer: (2016) Dennis from London   5 Stars

Thoroughly enjoying the java which we ordered at The Love of Coffee.

Reviewer: (2016) Katharine from Yeovil   5 Stars

It was very easy to place my order, and my coffee arrived very quickly. I will be ordering coffee from this website again.

Reviewer: (2016) John from Somerset   4 Stars

Good but Monsoon Malabar is better.

Reviewer: (2016) Jackie from Wrexham   5 Stars

Great service, lovely coffee beans, really enjoying trying lots of different ones, slowly making my way through as many as possible!, Blue Mountain and Old Brown Java my favourites so far - don't think I'll be able to go back to shop bought after tasting these!

Reviewer: (2016) Darran from Woburn Sands   5 Stars

Bought the beans and a great tasting coffee for a morning espresso. Strong but not harsh tasting. Tried it in a tasting pack and love this variety. Excellent service and very quick delivery.

Reviewer: (2016) Arnold from County Durham   5 Stars

Excellent coffee. Very fast delivery. Recommended.

Reviewer: (2016) Isabel from Surrey   5 Stars

Having tried 5 small samples of other beans this was my stand out favorite. Rich and full bodied. Taste is subjective but I also commend the service from The Love of Coffee. Good descriptions of each bean and great speedy delivery.

Reviewer: (2016) Angela from Liverpool   5 Stars

Fabulous coffee especially the Old brown java,quick no nonsense delivery. Proper coffee people.

Reviewer: (2016) Marnie from Kent   5 Stars

So many beautiful coffees to choose from but we really love this one. The grind is perfect for our retro percolator and we love having hot, flavoursome coffee all morning in our home office! Great price and delivery. We'll be back for more soon.

Reviewer: (2016) Anne from North Yorkshire   5 Stars

Excellent service. Prompt delivery and first class product.

Reviewer: (2016) Gill from Erskine   5 Stars

Totally impressed with the many varieties of beans from around the world on this site. Superfast delivery too. I'll definitely be ordering all my coffee from here in future. So glad I found this site. The ones Ive tried so far have been delicious.

Reviewer: (2016) Darren from Lincolnshire   5 Stars

Ordered a few days before Christmas and delivered next day. Excellent service and excellent coffee.

Reviewer: (2016) Maren from Buckinghamshire   4 Stars

The service was good but the taste of the coffee didn't quite come up to expectations.

Reviewer: (2015) Robin from Rugby, Warwickshire   5 Stars

I'm struggling to decide whether I prefer this Old Brown Java or the Indian Monsoon Malabar (Extra Strong). This is a tad sweeter and slightly less bitter but both are delicious, strong, with a beautiful aroma and make an excellent Cappuccino........ I may alternate between the two :)

Reviewer: (2015) Brian from Wigan   5 Stars

Good service and delivered when promised.

Reviewer: (2015) Stuart from Bolton   5 Stars

Superb service. Good price, informative descriptions on the website & prompt delivery. Will be using again.

Reviewer: (2015) Howard from Derby   5 Stars

Discovered 'The Love of Coffee' when I was trying to source some unusual types and I was delighted to find the range on offer here. I was delighted to receive my four trial packs in double quick time and will be back for more!

Reviewer: (2015) Steven from Edinburgh   5 Stars

As a coffee drinker for over forty years, I'd like to say your Old Brown Java (which I recently ordered) is probably the finest of its type I have tasted. None of the artisan roasters here in Edinburgh will roast darkish like yours. I found it very interesting you make clear don't pull coffees from stock, but roast fresh. I must be old fashioned, having used a Bialetti Moka pot for at least thirty five years. I look forward to ordering again from your company.

Reviewer: (2015) Ian from East Yorkshire   5 Stars

Order was dispatched very quickly (as usual!). Another repeat order, never had Old Brown Java I have been disappointed with - like the full flavour.

Reviewer: (2015) Kenneth from Edinburgh   5 Stars

Excellent, polite and helpful service. Very quick delivery. Excellent coffee.

Reviewer: (2015) Sandra from Loughborough   5 Stars

Excellent coffee and brilliant service from this company. Will definitely be returning for more. Thank you.

Reviewer: (2015) Lisa from Essex   5 Stars

Excellent service, especially the Old Brown Java. More orders to come, Thanks.

Reviewer: (2015) Jackie from Liverpool   4 Stars

I usually get the CREMA ESPRESSO (for my bean to cup machine) but thought the 4 pack would be a great way to taste other flavours too. I'm glad I did because now I've discovered the OLD BROWN JAVA and I'm in love! I'm going to order this from now on.

Reviewer: (2015) Rachel from London   5 Stars

The coffee arrived very quickly and was a lovely addition to the kitchen. I had already bought the Papua New Guinea Organic Coffee and been very satisfied so I thought I'd try a stronger one. I highly recommend your products and will order again and again for sure.

Reviewer: (2015) Ben from SL3   5 Stars

Old Brown Java is my favourite bean that I've tried from this website so far, and indeed probably the best coffee I've ever had. Makes a lovely americano from a hand grinder and aeropress. Not as oily/waxy as other beans, so cleaning utensils is even easier too!

Reviewer: (2014) Paul from Southampton   5 Stars

Indian Monsoon Malabar and Old Brown Java are amongst my favourites. I tried Guatemala Maragogype this time too but haven't enjoyed it as much as the other coffees I've tried from here. Still plenty more types of coffee to try. Great site.

Reviewer: (2014) Gavin from Galston   5 Stars

Service was impeccable like before. Product of top quality.

Reviewer: (2014) Ben from Langley   5 Stars

Having tried a few different coffees from this retailer and others, Old Brown Java has been my favourite so far.

It's rich and strong, and nice and smooth made through an Aeropress. I've recently bought a grinder, so hopefully my latest purchase of unground beans will be even fresher and tastier than last time.

Reviewer: (2014) Yeomanis from UK   5 Stars

Unbeatable richness without bitterness. A superb base for blending with more perky beans.

Reviewer: (2014) Mr Davidson from Edinburgh   5 Stars

I drank the odd cup of coffee now and again never much bothered. TBH, that is till I won a percolator in a Xmas raffle. I went to a well known store in Edinburgh bought some beans and got a shock at the prices they were asking for and nearly ditched the perk there and then.

Not to be put off purely by the dent my wallet took from my visit to V&C I hunted online to see if I could find a cheaper source for my beans and I found TLOC £15 or so I spent on 5 bags, now I'm hooked I look forward to the re-order once my stash goes down I've put 2 orders in in as many months I've got the world of coffee only an email away my favourite so far which is Amaretto with Old Brown Java the only bag Ive ordered on both occasions.

I've still got plenty off different coffees to try from all around the world TLOC makes it a tad easier with the prices they charge, so if you have a spare £10/£12 this month treat yourself to some coffee you wont regret it.
