This region of Indonesia is also referred to as the Gayo land because the coffee farmers are from the Gayonese ethnic group and continue to cultivate Adsenia (TimTim), which is the oldest coffee varietal in Aceh. Grown in rich volcanic loam soil then “Triple Picked” means the coffee cherries are hand-sorted three times, as opposed to the standard single or double sorting and dried in the sun on a patio. This ensures a better processed coffee with fewer defects, and a cleaner, brighter cup profile.


Organic Sumatra Adsenia Mandheling Gr1 is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Ketiara Cooperative, located in the Takengon highlands of the Aceh province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. A high percentage of farmers, typically from the most remote villages of the Takengon highlands, are widows who lost their husbands during periods of conflict in Aceh. A women’s origination was recently formed to address the needs of the community, which includes plans to build a health center in the community.


Wet hulling, or giling basah, is the traditional method used in Indonesia. And although both the name and the method are very similar to wet processing, the cup characteristics are incredibly different. Further information
