Getting product details...

From Rory at The Coffee Officina:

Rich and spicy aroma with hints of berry fruit. Notes of raisin, hazelnut and caramel. A full body with a balanced acidity.

This coffee is sourced from various small producers from the town of Takengon, in the far north-west of Sumatra.

Like most coffees produced on Sumatra, this coffee is wet-hulled, according to the traditional Giling Basah method. Growers pulp their cherries at the farm, then partially dry the mucilage before sending the crop to millers who remove the parchment in a semi-wet state. It is thought that this process gives Sumatran beans their distinctive bluish-green appearance. After being stringently dried, this coffee has been dry milled to the highest standard, removing all defects via a variety of sorting processes.

We chose this coffee because of the traditional processing method used in Indonesia, which gives the coffee a very unique and distinctive character.
