This cacao grows on the fertile volcanic soils of the eastern tip of Java, called “Ijen Plateau”, on the PTPN XII plantation.

In Indonesia most of the varieties are hybrids of original American plants. This cacao is DR1, DR2, DR38 clones, also known as Java Criollo. Genetic analysis shows lineages with cacao from Venezuela Ocumare and with the white lower Amazon varieties like Catongo.

Java Light Breaking beans are remarkably white. Once harvested, the beans are fermented in wooden crates, and turned each day into another crate, this process is called “waterfall system”. This system ensures homogeneous fermentation.

Fermentation takes only 3 days, because the beans have relatively little pulp. Once fermented, they are thoroughly washed until they have a crisp white outer shell.
