REGION: Gunung Tujuh FARM / CO-OP: Kerinci Tujuh Cooperative ELEVATION: 1,400 - 1,500 Meters PROCESS: Wet Hulled TASTING NOTES: Citra Hops, Watermelon, Baking Spices
This coffee comes from a coffee farmer's cooperative in the Gunung Tujuh area, a higher elevation coffee zone around Mount Kerinci. The cooperative serves about 450 farmers in the area who are divided into 24 farmer groups, 4 of which are specifically women's farmer groups. Many of the farms in this area are planted in older Typica types and benefit from the high slopes, situated between 1400 - 1500 meters above sea level. This is a wet hulled coffee, also known as "giling basah". This is the typical process method in Sumatra and involves removing the parchment layer while the coffee is still wet, exposing it to the elements well before the coffee is stable. When handled well during the drying phase (like this coffee), this rustic process method yields an earth-toned, bodied cup, with mild acidity and syrupy sweetness, and the green bean taking on a dark green hue unlike wet or dry process coffees from other producing countries.
