Old Brown Java

Our Price: £3.25
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

Coffee perfection.

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.

Reviewer: (2014) Yeomanis from UK   5 Stars
Unbeatable richness without bitterness. A superb base for blending with more perky beans.

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) Gavin from Galston   5 Stars
Service was impeccable like before. Product of top quality.

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: (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: (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) 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) Lisa from Essex   5 Stars
Excellent service, especially the Old Brown Java. More orders to come, Thanks.

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) Kenneth from Edinburgh   5 Stars
Excellent, polite and helpful service. Very quick delivery. Excellent coffee.

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) 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) 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) Stuart from Bolton   5 Stars
Superb service. Good price, informative descriptions on the website & prompt delivery. Will be using again.

Reviewer: (2015) Brian from Wigan   5 Stars
Good service and delivered when promised.

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: (2016) Maren from Buckinghamshire   4 Stars
The service was good but the taste of the coffee didn't quite come up to expectations.

Reviewer: (2016) Darren from Lincolnshire   5 Stars

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) Angela from Liverpool   5 Stars

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) 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) 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!

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) 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) Gavin from Kent   5 Stars
Great choice of coffee with detailed information. Speedy delivery as ever.

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: (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.
