Ventura Sumbawa Arabica Coffee

Sumbawa lies to the east of Bali and Lombok, and is larger than the two combined. Despite its size, it has a population of around one million, less than a third of the population of Bali. Sumbawa lies within the Ring of Fire, a string of volcanoes encircling the Pacific Ocean.  

It is a mountainous island with deep ridges and fertile, green valleys. Sumbawa is the home of Tambora volcano. The 1815 eruption of Mt.Tambora was the largest in historic time in spite of the common assumption that the Krakatoa (also in Indonesia) eruption was the largest.

The intensive coffee plantation were begun in colonial era after the area was cleared up because of the eruption of Tambora volcano in 1815. However archaeological findings discover some coffee seeds in Tambora culture sites suggesting the local Tambora and Pekat kingdoms already cultivating the seeds acquired from Dutch East Indies Company, grow and harvest them and trade with them.

Our Ventura Sumbawa Coffee is famous for its bittersweet chocolate, floral and woody notes with medium body.
