Indonesian vanilla products are well-knownin the worldwide market for their unique flavor profile. The islands of Sumatra, Java, Bali, and Papua are the largest vanilla bean producersin Indonesia. These beans boast a blend of sweet, creamy, and smoky notes, with hints of chocolate, caramel, and tobacco.

Indonesia’s production capacity allows it to be a significant player in the global vanilla market. In fact, it is reported to be the second-largest vanilla producer in the world, following Madagascar.

Historically, vanilla has played a very important role in Indonesian culture

Vanilla has played a significant role in Indonesian culture for centuries. According to the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Indonesia, vanilla was first introduced in 1819 as part of a garden collection at the Bogor Botanical Garden. By the 1960s, vanilla plantations flourished on the island of Java, leading to the beans’ global recognition as “Java Vanilla Beans.”

Production eventually spread to other parts of Indonesia, including Sumatra, Sulawesi, Bali, Nusa Tenggara, and Papua, starting in 1864. In 2020, vanilla plantations covered an area of 9,291 hectares, with production reaching 1,412 tonnes

Why Indonesia vanilla is so good?

With its consistent flavour, unlike other vanilla, Indonesian vanilla is suitable for cooking at both high and low temperatures. Climate, soil properties and drying methods all contribute to the unique, smoky flavor of Indonesian vanilla. In some regions vanilla is grown in areas rich in volcanic material. These volcanic components make the surrounding soil nutritious for growing crops

Moreover, Indonesia is a tropical country, which means it has sufficient sunlight for the drying process. The result is beans that are slightly less pliable than other Planifolia varieties, yet the strength of the pods produces a rich and strong vanilla caviar, which sustains its unique flavour and aroma qualities.

How to I find trusted vanilla bean suppliers?

Our main task is to promote Indonesian products. ITPC Hamburg is ready to help you find trusted vanilla suppliers from Indonesia. In addition, we can assist you if you want to import any products from Indonesia.

How Indonesian served their coffee

Typically in Indonesia coffee can be enjoyed by brewing and usually coffee is enjoyed in the morning or afternoon. However, in Aceh and Yogyakarta, coffee is served in an unusual and unique method. The method of drinking makes a special attraction for coffee lovers who want to try enjoying coffee in a different way

  • Kopi Khop
    Coffee is brewed and poured into a cup, which is then inverted and placed on a large plate.  The coffee will be served with a straw, this straw is used to blow air slowly in the glass, so that the coffee can flow into the plate. Kopi Terbalik or Kopi Khop this way of drinking coffee originated in Aceh, Meulaboh City to be precise. Historically, Kopi Khop was deliberately served upside down because fishermen on the west coast of Aceh wanted their coffee to stay safe from the waves while at sea and allow the coffee to stay clean from dust and the coffee to stay warm.
  • Kopi Joss
    Kopi Joss originated in Yogyakarta. This coffee is served with charcoal added directly into the brewed coffee cup. The addition of charcoal is believed to have health benefits and can neutralize acidity and give a subtle caramel flavor to the drink. Reporting from the Visiting Jogja page managed by the DIY Tourism Office. This drink appeared in 1968 and was served by a local street food seller named Lik Man. The unique presentation makes this Jogja specialty coffee drink very famous in Indonesia.
