In the regency of Aceh at northern end of the Island of Sumatra is the district of Atu Lintang at altitudes of 1300 -1500 masl. A co-operative grou of 600 farmers in the Atu Lintang district contribute to this lot. As well as growing coffee the farmers also grow vegetables and fruits to eat or sell at local markets. Usually there are two harvests a year with coffee being picked in the main harvest from October – December and then again from March – May as part of the fly crop.
The farmers here pick the cherry which is then collected and taken to a local central processing unit that initially was used for washed coffees. Unusual for Sumatra the coffee is not processed by lots of small producers and then collected but processed as one which is why we think this coffee has such good uniformity and clarity compared to other coffees from this region.The coffee is de-pulped and then runs through grading channels where the floating beans are removed.
