A seductively dark, velveteen coffee...

Our Santos and Java coffee blends beans from either side of the globe, Brazil and Indonesia, to create a seductively dark, velveteen coffee with a powerful kick. 
The Santos beans are grown on the rolling plains of Southern Brazil, yielding dark flavours of baking chocolate and stewed fruit, while beans sourced from the humid volcanic slopes of the Ijen Plateau on the island of Java add a lighter, creamier sweetness with just the right acidity. With its heady aroma and high-roasted boldness, we like to think this coffee has something of the mystery of Indonesia, and a touch of the party spirit of Brazil…

Brew the perfect cup

  When making coffee always use freshly drawn and boiled water – wait a few seconds for the water to cool so you don’t scald the grinds. Cardinal rule? Never re-heat brewed coffee! Freshness is everything.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a huge oolong fan – the sheer diversity of different flavours is pretty mind-boggling. My favourites are the creamy, almost buttery high grown oolongs grown in Taiwan.”

- Bethan, Specialist Tea Buyer


After smuggling coffee seedlings from the Arabian port of Mocha in 1616, Dutch colonists became the first to cultivate coffee outside the Arab world, establishing plantations on the island of Java. Much Indonesian coffee undergoes the uniquely Indonesian ‘Giling Basah’ process of semi-washing the beans, reducing acidity and creating a softer, full bodied cup. These coffees lend themselves well to darkly roasting, encouraging the earthy, spicy flavours to fully develop.

* * * * * top marks by christine mcintosh on 23rd August 2015

We were given a present of Whittard's coffee samples a couple of years ago and worked our way through them giving marks out of ten. This smooth and rich blend was given top marks in our survey and we've been buying it ever since. It really does the trick at breakfast time giving us a good kick start for the day.

* * * * * Robust full of flavour by jill on 4th August 2015

went down very well with the coffee drinkers in my house. Good, robust flavour.

* * * * * Classic by Charles Thompso on 31st July 2015

I buy other brands to try, but always come back to this as a staple. Satisfyingly strong, but not bitter it fills my needs both in flavour and strength. It is the sort of coffee I can drink at any time of day - breakfast until after dinner. I recommend it for lovers of full flavoured coffee.

* * * * * Rich by PJ on 4th April 2015

Very dark and satisfying to come back to when you're too used to milder roasts. The Brazilian beans give it that spicy kick of cooked fruit with a slightly sharp acidity, and the Indonesian coffee smooths it out with a dark chocolatey base, with a lovely rounded mouthfeel. Especially made in a cafetiere the dark chocolate notes start to dominate.

ce café moulu ne sent pas bon du tout , mais son goût est cependant agréable .

* * * * * Santos and Java coffee by E Branney on 24th January 2015

Superb I didn't think any other coffee could compare to my chosen one . My son bought me the Santos and Java as a Christmas stocking filler . I brewed it with an open mind and when brewed I pourred myself a cup . I drink it only black . Wonderful !!!!

* * * * * The Best by Nigel Clark on 18th January 2015

I have been drinking Santos & Java for over ten years and although I have tried others I keep coming back. This is the best tasting coffee, I drink it black, full of body and lovely aromas. I would recommend this to anyone how likes their coffee. I have to order on line now as my local store has been closed down (what a shame) but the order arrives within a couple of days.

As everyone seems to say, however many other coffees you try, this is the one you always return to : the perfect espresso and cappuccino.

* * * * * The Best by Toni S on 25th July 2014

No matter how many other coffees I try - this remains the firm favourite. Please consider making into nespresso type pods so I can have it at work too!

* * * * * The best coffee by Lloyd lyons on 3rd November 2013

I love whittards of Chelsea all the staff when I been to Whiteleys or Covent garden the staff are very helpful in finding what suitable for you and definitely recommend this coffee I bought it many times it\'s much better than instant coffee but I always like honey or sweetener in my coffee but I find it keeps me awake for long time if I am sleepy I take that in the morning the smell is lovely and u get what u paid for it really does the job a must buy definitely recommend it from customer that enjoys cups of it

* * * * * What a cup of coffee !! by Denise G on 16th May 2013

I wandered into the Whittard in Nottingham just to have a look and was greeted by an incredibly helpful assistant. She asked me what sort of coffee I liked and suggested this Santos & Java. Well done to her, it makes the most gorgeous Latte, and a perfect espresso. I'll definitely be buying more, and trying others. Gorgeous !

* * * * * Old Faithful by John Curnow on 18th July 2012

I have been drinking this coffee for some time now and every now and then I slip away and try something new. Returning is always a joy. This is a bold coffee with a distinctive second taste that has a smoky character. Wonderful with a fine malt.

* * * * * Daily grind! by Rudy Lacchin on 6th April 2012

I echo what everyone else says about this combination of beans and the service we always get from Whittard. We've been using the online shop for a couple of years and before that we used to buy from the shop in Cheltenham. Just one recommendation though: don't grind the beans more than a few hours in advance: grind as many as you're going to use immediately and no more, otherwise you lose some of the volatile aromatic oils which contribute to that beautiful crema on your espresso.

* * * * * Rich and Delicious by Emma Daly on 22nd March 2012

The perfect coffee for entertaining after a meal.

* * * * * Santos & Java by Deborah Taylor on 8th January 2012

Fantastic, aromatic coffee. It will make you smile. I bought some supposedly special supermarket beans from Java recently - not a patch on this!

* * * * * Santos and Java and Old Brown Java by lynn lewis on 22nd December 2011

This coffee is excellent and I have been drinking it for years. I like the fact that I can order on line and the delivery is quite fast. What does annoy me is that 4 days after I placed this order (in time for Christmas) I received an email offering a 20% discount. My order was for over £70, 20% would have made a considerable difference.

* * * * * Santos & Java coffee beans by Elizabeth Adams on 21st December 2011

I have been purchasing this coffee from Whittards online for the past 2 years . The coffee is always delivered quickly, well packaged and fresh. When the postman picks up the package for delivery he knows it is for me because of the beautiful aroma. I live in a rural area and the excellent service from Whittards is essential for my coffee needs. Try them you won't be disappointed

* * * * * Santos & Java by Susan A on 15th September 2011

We love this coffee, very tasty and aromatic. Would recommend to everyone. Excellent service by Whittards, fresh product and fast delivery every time. Thank you.
