Rob Says: Glad to have a washed Indonesian coffee on board again. Our favourite Indonesian coffee off all time, the Tana Toraja, was a washed coffee, but that one was bought last in 2016.
Indonesian coffee is traditionally processed with the Giling-Basahmethod, or wet-hulled. So very happy we found a great clean cup washed lot that should be smashing on espresso mainly, but why not on filter?
At Asman Arianto’s farm all cherries are handpicked and then brought to their own wet mill where it is pulped using a disc pulper. Beans are wet fermented for 12 hours and soaked for 24 hours. The beans are dried on raised beds and covered patios.
