The history of coffee in Indonesia can be traced back to the 17th century and is narrowly tied into the colonial past of the archipelago. Since the first coffee beans were imported by the Dutch in 1699, Indonesia has become an important market. They country produces multiple exquisite grand cru's and has become the fourth biggest coffee producer in the world. This particular coffee is from the province of Aceh. There, the weather conditions are ideal to cultivate coffee in terms of temperature (about 20° all year round) and precipitation. The beans are prepared using a method called 'Wet Hulled', a traditional Sumatran preparation method. On top of that, they are also of certified organic produce.
As soon as they are picked, the berries are depulped by the producer, then fermented in bags during the night. Following this, they are rinsed the next morning. Because of the degree of humidity and the regular rainfall in this region, the grains can't dry efficiently. When the parchment is removed, the coffee still holds a humidity level of round about 17-18%. Next, the beans are dried in a storage before being shipped.
For this coffee, we chose a medium to dark roast. This grants the coffee a gorgeous intensity, a round and syrupy body, a delicious bitterness and pleasant hints of tobacco, butter and vanilla.
