From Royal Coffee

The Bajawa area is unique culturally and agriculturally even within Indonesia. Driving up into this mountainous region, you’ll find palms replaced by candlenut trees (a nut which is used in curries and other fatty foods), and as you get progressively higher, clove trees . Once you reach this last area, it’s not uncommon to smell sweet coffee blossom intermingling with the spicy aromatics of clove. Beiwali lies North of the iconic Mount Inere, an active fumarole in the Ngada district.

Before the arrival of the Dutch, Flores was colonized

by Portuguese who assimilated almost completely into the native population. People in this area are at least bilingual if not trilingual, speaking Bahasa Indonesia,

Portuguese, and many native dialects such as Ngadha , Lio, and Ende.

Coffee is a relatively new cultivated crop in Flores, and production is still quite small in comparison to areas like Sumatra and Java. The newly completed Trans-Nusa Highway which passes directly through the Bajawa area is streamlining trade throughout the islands, and coffee industry is likely to see further development. This coffee is just the beginning of great things to come from Flores.
