Most of the Java Island coffee is grown on government estates, but Dadar is a private co-op of farmers, which allows the coffee to be organic certified and rainforest alliance certified.  Of course, this comes at a price.  Taman Dadar Estate Organic Java is the most expensive coffee grown on the island.  "Taman Dadar" means "Flower Garden" and is the nickname for the area.  This co-op is in the Eastern side of the island, including the villages of Curah Tatal and Kayumas.  The coffee is packed in a grain-pro back to keep it from aging or picking up undesirable flavors.  

In a medium roast, it's nice but not particularly memorable.  Just at 2nd cracks you have good body, sweet, smooth, a little chocolate, nothing wrong here.  You can blend with it, or drink it straight.  But as a dark roast, it's a little more interesting.  About 20 seconds of 2nd cracks and you have a molasses sweetness and a really fun spiciness.  Still not bitter, no offensive flavors, very smooth, very thick body so its satisfying to drink.  Not earthy like a Sumatra.  No bitterness or burnt flavors until you hit about a minute of 2nd cracks.  At that point, you're going to need some cream to mellow it out. 

In short, this is by far more interesting of a Java bean than most.  But it's not as chocolatey as some years.  But it definitely holds its own and makes a fun alternative to the classic Sumatra dark roast.
