Wet-Hulled (Semi-washed/Giling Basah) - Usually the smallholder farmers process the coffee themselves and then deliver to a mill to be graded and bagged. Unusually, this lot is all processed by one central mill, which accounts for the unusual uniformity and clarity in the cup!
This is a farmer group who we bought from for the first time this year which is made up of 600
farmers in the Atu Lintang district who contribute to this lot. As well as growing coffee the
farmers also grow vegetables and fruits to eat or sell at local markets.
Usually there are two harvests a year with coffee being picked in the main harvest from October - December and then again from March - May as part of the fly crop.
This coffee has great clarity so can be roasted fairly light, we recommend a development time of 1:30 and a total roast time of under 9 minutes
Typical of wet-hulled Sumatras', dark roasts bring out deep dark chocolate and spice notes. Roast it as dark as you please!
