About The Coffee Producer
This coffee was produced in the volcanic mountains of the Bondowoso Regency in Indonesia. Rich volcanic soils, a warm climate, and abundant monsoon rains create a perfect environment for growing coffee. However, many coffee producing regions in Indonesia are plagued by a lack of infrastructure needed to process the coffee well.
Most harvested coffee in Indonesia is stored in jute bags for long periods of time after harvest, during which uncontrolled fermentation takes place. This uncontrolled fermentation process results in the unique flavors associated with Sumatran coffee. Many people find the flavors produced by this process to be unpalatable unless they are toned-down by darker roasting, or the addition of cream and sugar to the final cup. In any case, the flavors produced with this methodology are unpredictable, with many lots of coffee produced in this fashion suffering from a loss of quality.
This lot of coffee was produced with the help of agronomists who help farmers organize farmers to build infrastructure for processing high quality specialty coffee. Centrally located coffee mills and shared labor practices help facilitate the timely harvest and transportation of ripe coffee to the mills. This lot was produced by this type of collective and its flavor profile is unique to not just Indonesian coffee but to the new wave of specialty Indonesian coffee.
How To Brew This Specialty Coffee
