Taman Dadar (meaning Flower Garden - the name local farmers give this area) comes from the villages of Curah Tatal and Kayumas. There is a government estate called Kayumas but it's not the same as the village. This year the Taman Dadar coffee has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance for sustainable agricultural methods and social responsibility - meaning they take care of the planet and their workers!

It is grown at elevations of between 900 and 1600 meters above sea level. Although coffee grown here has been organic for generations by default, these farmers just now received official organic certification allowing them to market their coffee as such. The farms of Taman Dadar seem more environmentally friendly in another way--government farms practice mono-cultural farming while Taman Dadar farmers interspersed Erythrina, Albizia and Leucaena trees. They also grow Parkia beans, avocados, and timber trees among the coffee trees. This allows the coffee to be shade grown, leading to a slower developing, harder bean, and this translates to a little more acidity (brightness) in the cup.

Flavor
Full bodied with notes of slightly bitter baker's chocolate, pine and a touch of sweet black cherry, allspice and pipe tobacco mixed with a very syrupy, rich mouthfeel.
