Bright Java started in 2016, after Troy and Aswan realized that small holder farmers could be better served in the International coffee markets. They are located in Salatiga, a small town in Central Java, where they source coffee from neighboring regions. We came across Bright Java for the first time at a cupping session at an Indonesian Export Trade Show in 2019.
There were about 40 coffees on the table and their coffees were a stand out amongst others. We then got in touch with Troy and planned for the 2020 harvest. Together we processed coffees from 2 regions: Tosoro Village in Merbabu, with around 30 families looking after coffees and Banyuwangi where the elevations go high as 1.600 MASL.
