Sumatra Mandheling Decaf SWB


Background:Our Swiss Water Process Decaf Sumatra Mandheling is produced by the Gayo Megah Berseri Cooperative in the Jagong Jeget district within the Central Aceh region in Northern Sumatra. The co-op is made up of 554 individual farmers, of which nearly half (211) are women.Growers of Sumatra (and Sulawesi) are the world’s exclusive practitioners of the Semi-Washed / Wet Hulled (or Giling Basah) process. Semi-Washed coffees are pulped and dried for only a handful of hours until moisture is somewhere between 25 and 50%. At this point the parchment layer is still intact along with a good portion of the mucilage, causing the beans to be gummy and sticky if not outright slimy to the touch.
