Palapa Story

In December 2019, our founder Dennis Yonasa visited a nutmeg plantation in Cigudeg, Bogor, West Java.He came across a large amount of nutmeg fruit, a by-product of their nutmeg spice production process. This fruit has little commercial value and the local market can only absorb a small amount. Most fruit ends up being composted back into the soil (true for most nutmeg plantations in Indonesia).So Dennis thought: “Why don't we try to make a drink from this, an ode to this forgotten fruit."Scroll further to learn more about the product...

Nutmeg History

Nutmeg, a spice that originates from the Banda Islands in Indonesia, has been highly valued for centuries both for its flavor and its purported medicinal properties. Its rich history is intertwined with global trade, colonial conquests, and cultural traditions

Historical Value: Nutmeg was once so valuable it was worth more than gold, driving European powers to the Spice Islands to control its trade.
Cultural Significance: In many cultures, nutmeg was used not only as a spice but also for its medicinal properties, believed to cure various ailments and ward off plagues.
Economic Impact: The demand for nutmeg shaped historical trade routes and had significant economic implications, leading to the establishment of the Dutch colonial empire in Indonesia.
