Bristol Indonesian Society is proud to present Indo Bean UK, at their annual event themed ” Wonderful Indonesia 2017″.
Visitors will have the chance to enjoy premium blended coffee and for those interested to know more about Indonesian coffee, well this is your chance.
The two behind the scene:
INDOBEAN UK founded by Alistair Clegg who start researching in Indonesian coffee since 2013 and in 2014 started trading Indonesian’s best coffees. Alistair has been in the coffee business for many years and passionate about coffee especially promoting Indonesian coffee such as Litong, Toraja, Mandheling and many others.
Al met Trigo Starden (a photographer and filmmaker) who happens to also have some knowledge about coffee, at various events for the Indonesian communities by Indonesian organizations in UK such as event by PERIUK an Indonesian Diaspora Network for UK and the Republic of Ireland.
Not until Alistair saw Trigo in Milan Italy at the Milan Expo 2015 when Trigo was promoting Indonesian Coffee for the Indonesian Trade Ministry and with the Head of the International Coffee Organisation the late Mr. Robério Oliveira Silva that Al is aware that he found the right partner to promote Indonesian coffee. They then merged the Bella Java and IndoBean UK to have one strong blend specialty coffee from Indonesia.
Indo Bean Uk is base in Derbyshire, they are committed to providing the best quality tea and coffee at a reasonable and competitive price. They have good ethics and maintain a good quality control system throughout their sourcing process. With these commodities, it is important that the sourcing chain upholds these ethics and have a ‘Social Responsibility’ for accountability, compliance and sustainable practices.
Indo Bean UK is passionate about Indonesian coffees because they believe that Indonesia produces some wonderful coffee beans with its own distinct characteristics. Coffees from Java and Sumatra have a pungent, earthy tone, with the volcanic soil and wide range of altitudes producing an inherent sharpness that is very popular with many connoisseurs.
Java also produces an ‘aged’ coffee called Old Brown Java, which has been matured for up to three years in warehouses at the origin. This gives the coffee another flavor dimension that is not replicated anywhere else in the world. Papua New Guinea produces the popular Sigri coffee, which is grown at high altitude resulting in a coffee that has a fragrance and “low-key luxuriousness.”
