Flores Green Dragon
The Roastmaster's Select 50th Edition
Here there be Dragons.
On the upland plateau of Flores Island, nestled against the Mt. Inerie volcano, Green Dragon coffee is harvested and processed in the town of Bajawa, home to the Ngada people. Flores Island coffee is often sold in local Jakarta markets as commercial grade ‘Sumatra’, but the traceable supply of branded Flores Green Dragon ensures more value finds its way to the growers of this exotic coffee, playing a vital role in the local economy.
Coffee from Indonesia
The species of coffee that make up Green Dragon are Typica, Tim Tim, and Linie S 795 (locally known as Jember). Jember is a cross between Kent, a typical mutation, and S288, a naturally occurring C. arabica and C. liberica hybrid. Developed in India, it is known for being one of the first varieties to be highly resistant to coffee leaf rust. Harvested between June and September, the coffee is pulped with minimal water, dried to roughly 35 to 40% and then wet hulled in a process called “Giling Basah.”
