The village of Jagon Jeget is located in the Aceh Province, an area that occupies the northern territory of Sumatra. This mountainous region is home to some fairly high peaks for Aceh, contributing farms for this lot ranging from 1400 meters above sea level to upwards of 1700. There is a central wet mill here where coffee is collected and processed. The operation is a step above most of the home-processing you might run across in Sumatra, and with washing and floating channels to help with separation and cleanliness, it's much more akin to a wet-mill operation we might see in Latin America for example. This is still fairly typical wet-hulling, where coffee is de-pulped and then dried for a single day down to only 50%, then moved to a centralized mill in Takengon where the wet parchment is peeled and then the coffee drying is finished down to 11-12% moisture (this method is called \"Giling Basah\", and you can read Tom's article about it here.)

The coffee is processed in the traditional Giling Basah method, which produces what are perhaps Sumatra's signature earth and herbal toned coffee. We were really pleased with this coffee as a non-decaf (perhaps you were too!), and bought a large enough lot that we were able to send some off for decaffeination by the Swiss Water Decaf plant in Vancouver, Canada.
