Deep, rich, and thoroughly complex, this outstanding offering from the famous Aceh region in Sumatra displays unique flavors of reduced berry juices, and fragrant mulling spices, especially that of pepper and anise. Mouthfeel is creamy and sweet like molasses, and the cup finishes surprisingly clean.

This coffee comes from a small mill in the Pegasing district of Takengon, in Sumatra's coffee-famous Aceh region. The mill serves several small coffee producers within the Pantan Musara villages; several years ago, these producers were dislocated from their homes and land because of a natural disaster, and they have rebuilt their lives and farms with a new focus on coffee. Unlike the vast majority of other Sumatran coffee receiving and processing centers, this mill is producing Washed coffees, as well as Naturals.

Coffee is delivered to the mill by producers in the area, and for Washed coffees, only fresh red cherries can be purchased. The Washed coffees are fermented for 36 hours after being de-pulped, then washed four times to remove the mucilage. It's then spread into a drying house or on raised tables to dry for around 14 days.
