The ever so popular term "Java," for coffee is derived from the island of Java, Indonesia. Java is full of lush coffee beans such as this one. Coffee is a major industry and export for Indonesia. Always has been. I took this photo near a friend's home outside of Jember, Indonesia. I had never seen coffee beans growing before. It was pretty cool to see a the natural source of coffee.
Coffee beans in this village are collected in those huge white sacks lined up. They are then put through this grinder and left out to dry. It's a complex and tedious process. It is a lot of hard work for the local farmers to prepare the beans for selling and shipment.
After the coffee beans are ground up, large tarps are laid out in front of people's houses. The beans are swept and spread out evenly for drying. The beans can be outside for a few days at a time.
