Sumatra is the second largest of Indonesia's more than 17,000 islands. Mandheling coffees are grown on the slopes of Mount Leuser, in soil that’s mineral-rich from volcanic ash.
The processing method specific to Indonesia is called the Giling Basah. Coffee is dried to 50% (versus the more common 10% or 12% percent) and then hulled and bagged and stored to rest. Elsewhere, hulling typically happens after the coffee has rested and just before it’s sent to the port.
