Java like many other coffee-growing regions, posses astonishing natural beauty. This scenery, however, directly contrasted with the “contempt and want consideration with which the native are treated” as Francis Thurber observed in 1881 work Coffee: Plantation to Cup. Each family of natives had to raise and care for 650 coffee trees and to harvest and process them fr the Dutch government. The price received by the natives from the government is placed at a figure low enough to leave an enormous margin f profit to the government. Thurber noted. The Dutch thereby “have maintained a most grinding despotism over their miserable subjects, levying forced loans and otherwise despoiling those who… have accumulate anything beyond their daily subsistence.
