Description

Sumatra

KOPERASI PERTANIAN GAYO LAUSER ANTARA Located at the northwest tip of the Sumatran Island, farmers that cultivate this coffee are organised around the Gayo Lauser Antara Cooperative, a recent initiative founded in 2015. The co-operative was formed due to a strong desire to improve the welfare of members towards a more decent life. With the best quality coffee produced by members, the co-operative seeks to improve the economic conditions of members. Jagong Jeget, where this coffee grows, is a sub-district in the district of central Aceh, Aceh province, which has a population of less than 10,000 people. Jajang Jeget sub-district has altitudes between 1400-1600 m.a.s.l and fertile volcanic soils creating the perfect climate for arabica coffee. The types of coffee planted by members of the Gayo Lauser Antara co-operative are the Linie S, Bourbon, S-288 and Catimor varieties. The greater region of Aceh is the source of what were once called “Mandheling” coffees, though that term is used more as a marketing concept than a true region when applied to coffee at present. Aceh is sometimes referred to as Gayo or Gayoland, a reference to the Gayonese population one of the ethnicities that live in the area. Only the ripest and reddest cherries are hand-picked by farmer members. After pulping, the cherries are soaked for 8 hours, before being fermented for another 8 hours. The coffee is dried on a parachute until the skin is dry, the coffee is still moist when peeled. The beans are then laid to dry again in the sun until they have reached a moisture content of 13%. The coffee is then hand-sorted to take out any imperfect beans. This coffee is a bold and intense experience with spicy, chocolatey overtones that leave a lasting impression. A subtle hint of malt and liquorice adds depth and complexity to its rich, heavy body, making it a coffee for those who crave a robust and fullbodied brew.
