Flores Blue Dragon coffee is from the area around the town of Bajawa. Part of an upland plateau, and near the Mount Inerie volcano, this region has rich, volcanic soil. Typica, Tim Tim and S 795 varieties are harvested then dried to about 30-40% before being wet-hulled or “Giliing Basah”. S 795, also known as Jember, is a variety originating from India and is one of the first varieties that has shown resistance to coffee leaf rust.
Nebilyer Valley is located within the Tambul – Nebilyer District. At an altitude of 1350 meters, the coffee cherries are grown in volcanic soil and harvested between April – September. The beans are fully washed then sun-dried at the Kuta mill which operates between the Ulga and Kolga tribes. Though tribal differences have created conflict, the Kuta mill has acted as a common ground for the coffee producers in this area and has been operating for over 40 years.
