BRIEF HISTORY OF COFFEE IN INDONESIA
Coffee was not a native plant to the archipelago. In the 17th century, when Indonesia was still under Dutch occupation, the VOC brought Arabica coffee plants to Indonesia.
The Dutch Colonial Government initially planted coffee around Batavia (Jakarta), and as far south as Sukabumi and Bogor. Coffee plantations were later established in East Java, Central Java, West Java, and Sumatra and Sulawesi. The Dutch colonial government opted for the more resistant Robusta variety.
Robusta still makes up around 90% of the coffee crop in Indonesia today. Today close to 92% of coffee production is in the hands of small farmers or cooperatives.
