    Lava Java

    Some of the world's most rare and decadent coffees come from Indonesia. With its lush rainforests, grand peaks and mysterious culture, it is only fitting that Lava Java, one of our most cherished blends, started its journey within the fiery depths of Indonesia's most famous volcano. Krakatau, commonly referred to in English as Krakatoa, is located in between the islands of Java and Sumatra, known famously for their extraordinary coffees. When Krakatoa erupted, the noise was said to be the loudest sound recorded in modern history. The large scale eruption sent coffee beans flying to both neighboring islands of Sumatra and Java. The tsunamis, an after effect of the earth shaking eruption, mixed all of the beans from the three islands together. Without the touch of man, Krakatau created the most delicious blend of Indonesian coffees known today. Lava Java is practically exploding with flavor. Like literally, is that smoke?

    Lava Java is a well-proportioned coffee. This artisan blend is full of aroma and flavor, some sweetness and earthiness, and enough body to provide a feeling of fullness in the mouth. Lava Java is the perfect blend to pair with a french press. Anyone who enjoys a good, dark cup of coffee will enjoy this select artisan blend.

    • Cupping Notes: Dark Chocolate, Syrupy, Walnut

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    Great coffee at a great price


    I love this coffee. Not too dark, very little oil on the beans, never bitter when brewed. I prefer mine brewed in a french press with the coarsest setting on my grinder.

    There are notes of vanilla, chocolate and caramel, with light earthy tones.

    There is a very light acidity that dances on the edges of my tongue.

    Gee-wiz, this is GREAT coffee

    Great bang-for-the-buck!


    A good coffee, and good value. Mixed 50/50 with Anniversary blend, is even better.

    Full of flavor


    Heady aroma and smooth flavorful blend of Indonesian coffees.

    • Fresh

    The best coffee is fresh roasted coffee... The company name says it all. I've purchased Lava Java from FRC in the past, and have never been disappointed.



    Before this current order have been very satisfied with Lava Java. It has been my go to coffee, For some reason this specific batch is not up to normal standards.

    Very disappointed!!!! Don't know what happened...... Ordered the 12 oz size. Have enjoyed a number of choices up to this point. Prefer ordering from you because I have been impressed with your quality and operation. I also have a friend who must have ordered a 5lb bag from this same batch that is also disappointed.

    Just thought you ought to know....
