Getting product details...
An altitude of around 1,600 metres above sea level and rich and fertile soils bring about coffees that are unrivalled in their depth of body and often have fascinating complexity – possibly due to the way that the beans are processed.
Sumatran coffees are mainly produced by a unique semi-washed process which is sometimes described as "wet-hulled" and is known locally as Giling Basah. In this process the coffee is picked, machine pulped (usually on the individual small holding) and then partly sun dried. The parchment is then removed revealing a whitish coloured, swollen green bean. The drying is then completed on the patio where the seed quickly turns to a dark green colour unique to Sumatra. This method brings about more body and often more of the character that makes Indonesians so unique and recognisable with flavours ranging from deep chocolate to tangerine funk.
There are around 68,000 hectares of coffee cultivated in Aceh by 65,000 farmers, which makes the average farm about 1 hectare. Aceh is a well-forested region with as many as 300 trees per hectare; approximately 90% of the production in Aceh is organic. Altitude in the cultivated area of Aceh ranges from 800 to 1,600meters and coffee is harvested between November and May.
