After many years of cupping and sampling, we're thrilled to finally showcase our second Sumatran coffee, Kerinci! Sourced from Koerintji Barokah Bersama Cooperative, made up of 250 members farming and growing coffee on a volcanic plateau at the foot of Mount Kerinci, one of the 452 active volcanoes in the pacific ring of fire. Erupting with flavour and complexity, Kerinci immediately caught our attention, yet, the real point of interest is the fact that it is a naturally processed coffee. Traditionally, Sumatran coffees are processed using Giling Basah, meaning wet hulling in local Basah language. A process specific to Indonesia, Giling Basah refers to the early removal of parchment, allowing for a quicker drying period despite the island's tropical climate, therefore developing the distinct, deep and spicy flavour profile Sumatran coffees are known for. Working towards diversifying their already rich coffee heritage, Koerintji Barokah Bersama Cooperative have hit the nail on the head with Kerinci. Fruity, chewy, jammy and volcanic! We hope you enjoy this treat.
