On a typical summer day in San Francisco, The Fog is in. High points on buildings and bridges may poke into the sun. But much of the city is engulfed in gray, presenting a challenge for tourists searching for that perfect picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. While this weather pattern may disappoint some, many others are now on a first-name basis with San Francisco’s famous FOG, known as Karl.
Process: Wet hulled
About Coffee From Sumatra: Coffee farming in Sumatra, Indonesia, is primarily done by small-scale farmers using traditional methods. The most common type of coffee grown in Sumatra is Arabica, which thrives in the region’s high-altitude and volcanic soil. The coffee plants are often grown in shaded conditions under the canopy of taller trees. This helps to protect the delicate coffee plants from the hot sun and harsh winds and provides a habitat for other wildlife. The coffee cherries are hand-picked and then processed using either the wet-hulled method or the dried-hulled method, which are unique to Sumatra and produce a distinctly earthy, spicy flavor profile.
About The Wet-Hulled Process: The wet-hulled process, also known as Giling Basah in Indonesian, is a unique method of processing coffee that is traditionally used in Sumatra and other parts of Indonesia. The process involves removing the outer layer of the coffee cherry, known as the pulp, immediately after the coffee has been harvested. The beans are then fermented and washed to remove the sticky mucilage layer, after which they are dried. Once the coffee has been dried to a moisture content of around 30-40%, the outer layer of the parchment (the protective casing around the coffee bean) is removed, revealing the green coffee beans. The beans are then sorted and packaged for sale. The wet-hulled process results in a distinct flavor profile that is often described as earthy, spicy, and herbal, with low acidity and a heavy body.
