Oh WOW!!!!!!!
Learnt new info today!
Thanks for sharing, never expect they age the beans for so many years!
I wonder how is the taste?
Oceanpriest, did you manage to order a cup of 8 years old beans to drink?
How it taste like? Super bitter? Super aroma?

the aroma is great. remember the factory's name: Aroma
the roasting is a bit too dark for filter drip, hence the bitter taste.
as espresso shot, it depends on the beans origin. the toraja origin is more balanced with vibrant acidity.

4. Nylon Coffee unpretentious place to drink your coffee, no fancy mugs, no cake, no sofa, and no chairs. can be difficult to locate it among the buildings.
5. Geisha Coffee another unpretentious place with great quality coffee. located at burlington square, just behind well audio labs and martin electronics.

I was in Indonesia and saw beans in a huge posting place that were up to 8 years old...worth a shot, otherwise they are for the bin.

8 years???!!!!!
Errrrrr...... did they add formalin to preserve the beans freshness?  :-\

it's quite common in Indonesia, they call it Old Java/Old Brown style. The beans are aged several years to improve the body and lessen the acidity.

When u said 8 years, i guess it must be from Aroma coffee factory in Bandung. They aged the Arabica beans for 8 years and Robusta beans for 5 years. I visited the factory once during my Bandung trip.
