Sumatra Mandheling coffees are famous for their peculiar flavor profile, low acidity, thick body, and rustic flavors that can often be described as earthy. Much of the flavor comes from how Sumatra coffees are processed, the wet-hull method. This coffee is sourced from 3 farms located in the Takengon highlands of the Aceh province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. The farms are owned by Kilang Kopi Lek Sujimin and Kilang Kopi Haji Warsidi, who each have over a decade of experience cultivating and processing coffee. After processing, the parchment is entrusted to PT Fajar Jeumpa, a family-owned export company that operates its own dry mill and provides logistics to transport and export coffee without the long and convoluted supply lines that can compromise the quality of coffee.

The city of Takengon, is considered the epicenter of one of the world’s most unique coffee terroirs. The province of Aceh, is a varied territory with high-elevation grasslands, mountain ranges, and the massive Lake Toba, one of the island’s most famous coffee-producing areas.
