Sumatra Tanah Karo

Sumatra Tanah Karo

0.75 LBS

Product Description

Drawn from villages in the Aceh province near Takengon at the northern tip of Sumatra, this offering stands out from many others grown in the region. Coffees from this part of the world are usually known for their outstanding body and earthy flavors, and while this lot still maintains that signature body and some earthy and floral tones, it offers up really interesting tropical fruit notes resembling grilled pineapple and mango. Since it was processed using the giling basah method, this coffee was wet-hulled (parchment layer removed before formal drying) and minimal controlled fermentation was implemented. The unique giling basah processing is common in Indonesia and is a key player in the formation of the rugged, earthy character that is found in coffees from this region. The area surrounding Takengon where this coffee is grown is well-known for its coffee industry but also celebrated for its premium fishing in nearby Lake Laut Tawar.
