In the regency of Aceh at northern end of the Island of Sumatra is the district of Atu Lintang at altitudes of 1300 -1500 masl.
The farmers here pick the cherry which is then collected and taken to a local central processing unit that initially was used for washed coffees. Unusual for Sumatra the coffee is not processed by lots of small producers and then collected but processed as one which is why i think this coffee has such good uniformity and clarity compared to other coffees from this region.
The coffee is depulped and then runs through grading channels where the loating beans are removed. From here it is the left to ferment overnight in tanks in water for approximately 12 hours. After this the coffee is then laid out on a patio in the sun for a day until it reaches about 40% moisture content (gabah - known locally). From here it then undergoes the wet hulling and removal of teh parchment which is said to give the deep blue/green colour of the coffee and squasehd bean appearance. After this the coffee is then dries again until 13% moisture for a further 4-5 days.
After this the coffees then rest before being put through gravity tables and hand picked twice and packed ready for export from the town of Takengon in Aceh.
