Not surprising, to me anyway. Though each different, seem too similar to
have one "add something" to one of the others in a blend. Consequently each
slightly different uniqueness got lost.
Or did you mean the cup tasted flat, as in lifeless? That I wouldn't expect
but not to say it didn't happen! I'd expect a somewhat homogenized
Indonesian cup character.

Homogenized would describe it. Flat meaning it failed. I used the wrong 
word.
The Java was for big body and the tobacco was to complement the tobacco 
in the Sulawesi. The earthiness in the Sulawesi would complement the 
more extreme earthiness in the Sumatra. The Sumatra has a husky 
sweetness with plum and acidity to top it off. Sounds good but like you 
said all that got lost.
It's a nice big bodied somewhat earthy cup but better as a base (or 
bass) for a blend as it is.
FWIW the Sumatra hasn't faded. I roasted it a little while ago and it 
was fantastic as a stand alone with the attributes mentioned. (miKe 
already knows this.)
