Old Brown Java is the coffee of dark burgundy libraries and billiard tables. Aged over a period of five years, over which time the beans are transformed from green to brown, this is an old boys’ blend which calls for the very best Cuban cigar. 

The unique ageing process was discovered in the 16th century, back when the Dutch introduced the first coffee seeds to the island of Java in Indonesia. As the spice ships carried their cargo back to Europe, the raw beans would be stored away in the hold to act as ballast. After several months at sea, the result was a robust, full-bodied bean, tempered by the wood and the brine to produce an exceptional earthiness of flavour with a hint of sweetness.
Old Brown Java’s distinct intensity of flavour makes it perfect for espressos, or as a hearty boost to a cappuccino or latte. Now available in one of our beautifully designed refillable coffee caddies!


Pure aged Java arabica beans.

Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

Brew a Perfect Cup

My second favourite coffee.
It doesn't have the same natural sweetness of Monsoon Malabar, but is a great coffee nonetheless.

The coffee beans were a present for my other half and he is really enjoying the coffee, says its the best coffee he has tasted.

Ordered a selection of coffees and this one was the first one I tried, am considering giving the rest away (although I'm sure they're very nice!). This is well rounded and full flavoured without a hint of bitterness. For me, the perfect cup of coffee.

Lovely coffee rich nutty flavour good after taste. AS stated in other reviews not to everyone's taste. I found it a light for my taste but 10 out of 10. Try it I think you will love it and I should know as I drink far to much coffee. If I have to give a negative its a little expensive at £14 for 500g but you pay for what you get. Thankyou

Whilst this had the necessary strength I was after, it did not please my taste-buds at all. Earthy is a VERY apt description. I thought it tasted like soil. Don\'t know whether to throw the rest away, or risk spoiling some Lavazza with it.
