Jember

Jember, or S795, is a relative of the Typica variety which was brought to Indonesia via India. Jember originated in Ethiopia. It may have developed more in Yemen before proceeding to India and finally Indonesia. Indonesian farmers commonly referred to it as Jember since it was distributed to them by members of the Jember Coffee Research center in Surabaya, Indonesia's 2nd largest city located in Eastern Java. We still have plenty to learn about S795/Jember. Through our cuppings of coffees from Sulawesi, we distinguished distinct sugar browning notes of caramel, maple syrup and brown sugar itself.
