Raja Batak
North Sumatra

Leafy tobacco and spices with fruity acidity and medium to full body - dark roast

Raja Batak comes from the western Lake Toba region in the north of Sumatra. This shipment has been processed using the honey process method where the sugary layer of fruit (mucilage) is mostly retained on the parchment-covered coffee after the cherry skin is removed. The initial drying period is done at each farm before the coffee is sent to the local processors who remove the parchment; this is done while the moisture level is still high in comparison to methods in other countries. The coffee then goes through a second stage of drying before being graded and prepared for shipment. In comparison to last year, there has been dryer and warmer weather which has been better for the ripening, processing and drying.
