If good coffee is easy to make, there won’t be bad coffee in this world!

Nestled underneath stretches of pine trees lies a secret patch of small Arabica coffee farm, which is operated by an equally small number of farmers.

The local villagers have been farming in this area for decades. Yet Arabica coffee is relatively new to this land, only less than a decade old.

Atmosphere is very lush (1200 amsl).

Nourished by mountain spring water and fertile soil, exotic plants, from cloves, vanilla orchids,

to avocados, have flourished on the hills of this sleeping volcano. For over a century, this natural ecosystem has been a sanctuary for various animals, including wild luwak, by providing them with enough food to live for generations.

Welcome to Desa Linggajati.
