Sumatra Arul Badak

Another hit from Aceh!

Grown at 1500 MASL, produced by 300 smallholder farmers, this Tim Tim variety has everything you want in a Sumatran coffee minus the dirty flavors often found in them.Processed traditionally as a wet-hulled coffee, means that this lot had the cherry skin removed and was sun-dried to 25-35% moisture content before hulling. During the hulling, the coffee’s parchment is removed from the seed, and then the lot finishes sun-drying.

Exceptional clean for an Indonesian coffee, we taste cedar, brown sugar, honey and black tea in this coffee.
