Indonesia Kerinci

A very clean representation of a traditional wet-hull (or Giling Basah) method coffee from Sumatra.  Notes of chocolate, blackcurrant, lime and fresh earthiness.  We originally bought the honey and natural process from this mill for subscription and then when cupping wet-hull offers blind this still came up top!  We love sourcing coffees from the same coop where possible.

The 250 members of the Koerintji Barokah Bersama Cooperative live and farm on a plateau that sits at the foot of Mount Kerinci on the island of Sumatra. Mount Kerinci is one of the many volcanoes in the Pacific Ring of Fire, a 40,000-kilometer horseshoe-shaped series of 452 volcanoes that are part of an almost constant dance of eruptions and plate movements. Mount Kerinci’s historic eruptions have assured that the surrounding area is lush and verdant thanks to the deep supply of fertile volcanic soil. The cooperative is managed by Triyono, who leads members in processing and roasting their own coffee. They have a fully outfitted roasting facility, including a cupping lab, next to the dry mill. This is especially impressive considering the cooperative was founded in mid-2017!
