Where is it from?

 

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 Kerinci Volcano on the edge of the Kerinci 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 in the 1960s 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 over the past seven years that coffee has been grown here alongside more traditional rice and vegetables.

The Barokah Cooperative has 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 the final drying in the larger greenhouse can be controlled over the next 7 – 10 days until the moisture reaches 11%. After this, the coffee is then stored in plastic-lined bags to help protect the coffee before it is milled and then eventually sent to Medan for export.

Juicy …!

In espresso form this is one of the 'juiciest' coffees that I have tasted in a long time. It's a little akin to Opalfruits' strapline 'Made to make your mouth water!'. The succulent black cherry-ness comes forward, with a lovely 'bite'. The finish is quite smooth. As Stephen warned me, with the addition of milk the nuances in the coffee are dulled-down – this makes sense, of course. As an AeroPress the orange element seems to be at the fore and the cherry disappears. I have only experimented with one grind fineness though. If I could give 4.5 stars I would, because there has been one coffee from Django that literally astounded me, and I have yet to match it. That's not to say that this isn't good – it is, it's very good indeed!

Great coffee

Excellent coffee. Tasting notes matched those experienced by my palate. Quick delivery. Good price. And states roasting date rather than use before date which is what should be the norm! Very impressed and will most likely sign up
