Sweet, herbal complexity with a silky milk chocolate flavor and texture.
These beans flourish on Java's west side, where abundant rainfall and cooler temperatures create a marked difference in climate from the island's eastern half, home to the more established coffee-growing estates.
To tend to their coffee trees, cultivated high upon a remote volcanic slope, smallholder farmers must travel by foot. Once harvested, the beans are diligently carried down the rugged terrain for processing. The resulting cup is a testament to the farmers hard work and dedication.
This special Starbucks Reserve® coffee is in very limited supply and only available at select stores.

This coffee was bland compared to most Indonesian coffees.
Best Starbucks brand I have ever brewed. Suttle hints of mocha, very smooth. Perfect ratings for this one continue!
I tend to migrate towards Indonesian coffee. Sumatra being my favorite store blend. The West Java blend does not have the bold bite that Sumatra does. It has a supple, mellow flavor making it a good choice for just about any time of the day.
Indonesian coffees are among my favorites so I just had to try this.
It is smooth, with the flavor not overpowering, yet delicious.
The "milk chocolate" note is an apt description.
It is the kind of coffee that you want to finish every drop to the bottom of the pot.
As mentioned, the flavor is not overpowering but deliciously smooth.
Indonesian coffees are also well known for low-acidity and this is no exception.
This is one of the best coffees I've tried in a long time, highly recommended.
Great Flavor---I am enjoying it very much,
I very much recommend it
I got this sent to me here in Afghanistan, and this coffee is a great blend of flavors to be enjoyed anytime of the day. Nice smooth flavor that has nothing to comptete with, I hope to purchase more.
I am enjoying the rich flavor of the West Java coffee. I use a press pot to prepare my coffee and the results yield a smooth taste with spicy notes. This is real competition for my Starbucks Sumatra that is my regular purchase.
Exactly like the headline this indonesian blend was flavorful and full. Much better than the other indonesian blend I bought.
Spouse and I really enjoyed the West Java. Had previously ordered Nicarauguan and Panama Reserve, and West Java is both our favorite of the 3 varieties.
This coffee is amazing. It is the favorite reserve coffee of every barista at my store. Although its flavor is bold, it tastes smooth and refined. Try it iced with a caramel drizzle - you won't be disappointed! I recommend trying and buying soon as we'll definitely be selling out of this one fast. Drink it black or add your favorite sweetener to a cup of this coffee - you can't go wrong with West Java. <3
