FULL BODY, LOW ACIDITY, AND EARTHY
The Takengon Highlands are located in the Aceh province on the northern tip of the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. The region has mineral rich volcanic soils, but a rather distressed infrastructure due to natural disasters that seem to hit the region every decade or so.
Wet-Hulled Process: this method of processing is synonymous with Sumatran coffees, and is only practiced in Indonesia. Wet-hulled coffees are unique because they add body, and minimize acidity. The reasons behind this process are rather complex, and are more based on economic and environmental factors in Indonesia, than the actual finished product.
Sumatran coffee definitely have some unique flavors, but they may not be for everyone. This particular single origin from Takengon showcases a lot of characteristics you'd expect from a Sumatran coffee, including a full body, low acidity, earthiness, and notes of cedar, and dark chocolate.
