producers: the ferrero family, patos de minas

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.

This is a farmer group is made up of 600 farmers in the Atu Lintang district who contribute to this region. As well as growing coffee the farmers also grow vegetables and fruits to eat or sell at local markets. Usually there are two harvests a year with coffee cherry being picked in the main harvest from October - December and then again from March - May as part of the fly crop.

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.
