Indonesia Sumatra Aceh Mandheling G1 TP Wet-Hulled 2022
Sumatra Aceh Mandheling Green Coffee Beans
Our Sumatra Aceh Mandheling green coffee beans comes from smallholders in the Aceh province. Growers in this region have an average of 0.5 - 1 hectare dedicated to coffee. But with favorable climate conditions, rich, fertile soil, and a high altitude, conditions are ideal for growing arabica coffee.
Wet-Hulled Coffee Process (Giling Basah)
Unroasted coffee from Sumatra is truly differentiated by its unique wet-hulled (giling basah) processing method. The process uses water to remove the cherry's red pulp and mucilage, while also removing the parchment layer in a "wet huller". By removing the parchment layer the bean dries faster, which is beneficial in Indonesia's wet climate.
The wet-hulled process gives Sumatra its signature intense earthy flavors of cedar and tobacco, as well as rich, sweet chocolate. With Sumatra Aceh Mandheling roasters can dive into the deep, rustic and sweet character of Indonesian coffee.
Indonesian Coffee Quality Grading
The Grade 1 (G1) Triple-Picked (TP) designation in Indonesian coffee represents meticulous color-sorting to eliminate defective green coffee beans.
