ABOUT THE COFFEE:
This coffee comes from a small mill in the Pegasing district of Takengon, in Sumatra’s coffee-famous Aceh region. The mill serves several small coffee producers within the Pantan Musara villages; several years ago, these producers were dislocated from their homes and land because of a natural disaster, and they have rebuilt their lives and farms with a new focus on coffee. Unlike the vast majority of other Sumatran coffee receiving and processing centers, this mill is producing Washed coffees, as well as Naturals.
It is a fully Washed lot, which means that the coffee was depulped, fermented underwater for 12–18 hours, and then washed before being dried for 25 days.
Sumatran coffees have long been distinct for their earthy, savory, somewhat vegetal or herbaceous characteristics, in part contributed by the climate and the mix of varieties grown.
