The Terroir

 

Sumatra is the world's 6th largest island, home to over 50 million people. The main coffee-growing regions are Aceh in the north, the Lake Toba area in the south, and the region around Mangkuraja.

 

Coffees from areas like Takengon, Bener Mariah, Lintong, Sidikalang, Dolok Sanggul, and Seribu Dolok can be traced back to specific localities within these regions.

 

Sumatra is well-known for its 'Giling Basah' or 'wet-hulled' coffee processing method, which speeds up drying in the island's high-rainfall environment. This method involves pulping the cherries immediately, fermenting them overnight, and rinsing them the next day.

 

Bener Meriah, located in Aceh's highlands, is famous for its natural beauty and cultural heritage. The region features scenic landscapes with terraced rice fields, rivers, and lush forests. It was also the site of the ancient kingdom of Lamuri, adding historical significance to its natural charm. Bener Meriah offers a glimpse into authentic Acehnese culture and warm hospitality amidst Sumatra's highlands.
