Description

It is a mountain located in East Java, around 3.5 hours drive from Bali. It is a somewhat active volcano in East Java province, Indonesia, but it is significantly bigger than Mt. Argopuro, because it is comprised of many smaller mountains surrounding it. A popular tourist destination is this crater that has the world’s biggest acid lake, and it has blue fire (from the burning sulphur that is on it)

The coffee farmers that reside on these two mountains usually also farm & sell tobacco and other commodities when the coffee season is already finished. Their grandparents are usually ethnically originally from Madura Island (a smaller island north of Java island). So most of the time they speak Madurese language, even if the closest big city to these two mountains (Surabaya) speak Javanese. In terms of climate, the eastern part of East Java province is very dry (tropical savannah), that is why we a national park that has a savannah in it. The verdant slopes of Mt. Ijen in East Java’s highlands produce specialty coffee of exceptional quality and character. Smallholder farmers cultivate heirloom varieties like Typica, S795 and Andungsari on their shaded plots scattered across the mineral-rich volcanic soil.

During harvest, pickers hand select only the ripest, fullest red cherries. The fresh crop is transported to the wet mill in Botolinggo village. There, the cherries are washed and soaked in channels to sort by density. Skilled workers remove any defects by hand, ensuring only premium grade cherries move forward.
