This is our first Indonesian bean, and to be honest we were a little unsure before ordering this for sample, not a region we typically drink at Jolly Bean! But, what fools! It’s delicious, lip smacking citrus fruit with orange and cherry, lovely acidity and floral on the finish, very very good! Perfect on filter or espresso for those who don’t mind their beans on the acidic side.

Located 7 hours drive hours from the city of Padang in the Kayo Aro District of West Sumatra this coffee comes from small coffee gardens (0.25ha – 2Ha) which sit in the shadow of the beautiful Kerinici Volcano on the edge of the Kerinici National Park, home to the endangered Sumatran Tiger. The people who inhabit this region are originally from the island of Java and migrated to this region tin the 1960’s as part of a Government program looking to spread people to available land to farm. There are large Government tea plantations that dominate the landscape and it is only recently that coffee that coffee has been grown here alongside more traditional rice and vegetables. 

The Barokah Cooperative have been established since 2011 and currently have 250 members farming 80Ha of Coffee Gardens who are spread amongst 6 villages in the area where they produce annually about 35 – 40 tons of coffee. Each of the collection points has its own pulping and collection point who receive the cherry from the local farmers. Here the coffee is floated and separated before being pulped and fermented for between 12 – 36 hours depending on the weather and then laid out to dry in the greenhouses to dry for 2 – 3 days before it is then transferred to the main collection point where Triyono, the head of the cooperative can control the final drying in the larger greenhouse for the next 7 – 10 days until the moisture reaches 11%. After this the coffee is then milled and sent to Medan for export.
