Returning for 2023! Vitner inspired by the pioneer in Indonesian coffee processing - cast aside your expectations for a Sumatran coffee because this flavor bomb has super rounded chocolate and fruit notes overwhelming the traditional rusticness This experimental natural/dry processed lot is one of a series we were fortunate to bring in this year. It represents an ongoing tidal shift in coffee globally, with more and more large and small producers accessing the supplies and knowledge to experiment. Varietals, once only found in certain corners of the globe, are spreading further and faster than ever before, as are agronomic and processing advances through methods and technology. Sumatran coffees have historically been divisive, and a major factor in that is the "wet-hulled" processing method. Called "Giling Basah" in the native Bahasa language of Indonesia, the steps involved typically result in thick-bodied coffees with blunted acidity and some rustic notes that wouldn't be sought-after in any other origin but are expected and sometimes treasured in a Sumatra.
Giling Basah is resultant of how the marketplace culturally differs in Indonesia. Instead of farmers selling cherries to a co-op, for example, the coffee is milled down to parchment quickly by the farmer and sold after only a few hours of sun-drying, typically 50% moisture. The mills use specialized machines to remove the parchment from coffee when it's 20-30% and then dried completely bare, accelerating the timeline. Why? The climate is the main reason, with mostly partial sunlight, super-high humidity, and the rainy season makes drying the coffee for export a huge pain. The finished product using newer processing methods can still result in typical Sumatran notes (jungle floor, tobacco, mulchy, sweet basil, to name a few). Still, as with most other origins, it is becoming increasingly common to find a coffee sharply straying from what once typified its region. In our eyes, these Pegasing lots are a roaring success.
