The BayuKidul Estate is a 100-hectare coffee plantation located in the heart of East Java in and amongst small hold clove and sugar cane farms. The 100 hectares yields an overall production of about 100 tons. Bayukidul Estate has also become the generic name for Washed coffees from a collective of surrounding small, private estates sharing the same washed-process facilities. This growing area in East Java is around Dampit (Djampit) near the small town of Malang. The A/WP1 Bayukidul Estate Arabicas grow at some 900-1,2000 metres around the village of Bondowoso, on the slopes of Ijen Mountain and Raung Mountain. The 2 mountains are active volcanoes. To the uninitiated, Ijen Mountain is probably more famous for its sulphur production, which is mined around its caldera .... the sulphur deposits and rugged terrain necessitate the sulphur being carried down the mountain by hand. The 2 mountains rise to some 2800 and 3300 metres above sea level, but the lower slopes and kinder terrain are highly fertile, and ideal for growing these speciality Washed coffees. The original BayuKidul Estate lies to the east of the Ijen and Raung Mountains. The coffee-producing plantations share a small catchment area and proximity, necessary for easy transport of the coffees to the Washed Process facilities within the same day/morning - essential for Washed Coffee processing.
The Bayukidul Estate coffees, WIB1 and A/WP1, are processed and hand-sorted exclusively by PT Asal Jaya in Dampit-Malang. Unlike the ex-PTP coffees, the Bayukidul Estate washed coffees can maintain good availability with sufficient stock throughout the season.

Indonesia was introduced to coffee by the Dutch in the mid-seventeenth century. It is home to the first commercial coffee plantations in the world. The first coffee production sold was in 1712 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Coffee production expanded well during these early days; however, in 1877, the coffee plantations were wiped out by a coffee root disease forcing the country to replant new coffee trees. Most new coffee plants came from Africa and were primarily Robusta Beans because these were more root disease resistant. Today Indonesia is still a significant producer of Robusta Beans. However, 10 to 15% of the Coffees produced in Indonesia are Arabica beans. The best growing regions for the Arabica varieties are Sumatra, Sulawesi, Java, Flores, and Bali. Indonesian Arabica beans are traditionally strong, complex flavoured, with a syrupy quality and balanced acidity.
