Sumatra Karo Highlands Single Origin Coffee
From the Karo Highlands near Lake Toba in the Lintong region, the Sumatra Karo Highlands coffee is one of our favorites. After picking, the beans are partially sun-dried then processed in a semi-wet state using a unique traditional method called Giling Basah, which literally means “wet grinding.” This gives the beans (triple-picked for size and quality) a unique bluish-green appearance. The result is a coffee that is often described as semi-sweet, earthy and herbaceous. We roast this coffee to a full second crack, giving it a creamy, fuller body and a smoother overall taste.
