This is an organic, grade 1, double picked coffee from Aceh, Sumatra.
Aceh coffees are grown in the Gayo highlands. All are grown in shade and almost all without chemicals. The average crop size is 30.000 MT /year (500.000 bags)
Coffee represents more than 50% of the income in Takengon and Bener Meriah regencies.
Processing methods vary widely with Aceh coffees, however, as do flavor profiles. The preferred is the wet hulled (Giling basah). The coffee is full bodied, slightly fruity with berry notes.
Arabica coffee cultivation at Gayo Highland started in 1924 by the Dutch after they built a trading road from Bireun Region to the Takengon Region. However, the cultivation was limited among the dutch and local royals that time. Mass cultivation only started after 1945 after Indonesia got its independence. Gayo people are very proud with their coffee and culture attached with it.
Aceh/Gayo is recognized by its rich body, dark fruit sweetness and earthy notes (but not dirty!) Coffee farms looks like a jungle since farmers in Gayo highland plant plentiful shade trees and do minimum work on their farm – Natural and Organic; plentiful sunshine, volcanic soil and abundant rainfall do the rest!
The majority of the farmers in Gayo highland use the Wet-hulled method to save time of process and fasten the money turnover – Over time, this established the uniqueness of the ‘Mandheling’ process in the coffee world.
