This comes from the villages north east of Lake Tawar, Gayo Mountain in Sumatra Island. Altitude: 1,200 up to 1,300 meters above sea level. These beans are semi washed and fully sun dried.
The coffee went through the wet hulling process, a typical one in Sumatra. In general, this process is also known as “giling basah” in local language. This process in general will give more body and often more of the “character” that makes the coffee so appealing and unique, also earthy. In this process, the parchment coffee (the green seed with the parchment shell still attached) is marginally dried, then stripped of the outer layer, revealing a white-colored and swollen green bean. Then the drying is completed on the patio and after several days the seed turns to a dark green color.
