About this Coffee
This special wet hulled coffee comes to us from a collective of smallholder farms set atop mountainsides overlooking the majestic Lake Toba in Northern Sumatra. We don’t frequently come across wet hulled coffees, but this unique lot immediately caught our attention and lit up our taste buds on the cupping table! The wet hulled technique (or Giling Basah) lends to the coffee’s intense flavors. A brewed cup sets off with sweet passionfruit & sparkling herbal tea notes and leads into what one would expect of classic Sumatran coffees, a long earthy, pipe tobacco finish.
