ABOUT THE PRODUCER:

This Sumatran coffee is grown by the Bener Meriah Farmer Group near Tingkem, Sumatra at altitudes of 1200 - 1500 MASL.

The Bener Meriah Farmer Group consists of 300 farmers spread over 450 hectares who grow their coffee in the rich and fertile volcanic loam soils, which are comprised of a mixture of sand, silt and clay. This soil type combined with the climate allows for the perfect growing conditions of coffee, giving the rich and full bodied, spicy and smokey coffees associated with the region.

Attention to detail is key, as each cherry is hand-picked to ensure the ideal ripeness. 

 

ABOUT THE PROCESS:

This is the traditional Sumatran wet-hulled process. Fresh, wet parchment is held/fermented in bags for around 12 hours, then patio-dried for another 3-4 days before “wet hulling” (removing of semi-wet parchment skin). Green beans are then patio-dried for another few days under shaded protection.

The members of the group receive training on tree management looking at the application of pesticides, pruning and picking ripe cherries to assure the best quality possible. Within this farmers also receive training on conservation of the natural environment looking at measures to prevent soil degradation, erosion and improving soil health. They are also educated on waste management as well as ensuring safe working conditions for themselves.
