By the time you receive your Luwak coffee, it is 100% clean and safe to consume.

Indonesian Coffees

Indonesian Coffees

Indonesia is a nation that is made up of many islands. It grows both Arabica as well as Robusta coffee beans. The specialty Arabica coffee beans are produced in the Sumatra region, although other regions such as Sulawesi and Java also produce coffee.

Processing of Indonesian Coffees

Coffees in Indonesia are processed with the semi-washed processing technique, which is commonly called ‘Giling Basah.’ This method is also known as wet hulling. A majority of the coffee beans grown in this island nation are processed with this processing technique. This gives a nice and unique flavor to Indonesia coffees.

 

The coffee cherries are dried while they’re still on the coffee bean for a short time period. After this, they’re washed and de-pulped. This, in turn, aids in extracting the fruity sweetness and other characteristics of Indonesian coffees.

Primary coffee producing regions in Indonesia

Sumatra

Sumatra is a region in Indonesia that harvests Indonesian coffees earlier than all other regions in the nation. This is because Sumatra is situated in Indonesia’s north-west region. The main places where specialty and high-quality coffee is grown in Sumatra are Lintong, Aceh, and Mandheling. All of these areas are situated in the northern region of Sumatra.

 

Lingtong coffee beans are generally produced beside Lake Toba but towards the south-west region. Coffees produced in this area are quite valued owing to their earthy properties. Moreover, this area has the best specialty coffees amongst all Sumatra coffees and Indonesian coffees.

 

Aceh lies in the north and is commonly called Gayo. Here, coffee beans are produced close to Tawar Lake. These coffees are popular for their clean and plain characteristics, less body, and fine acidity tone. Coffees produced here are generally yielded between November and March and available in April.

 

Mandheling coffee beans are usually grown beside Lake Toba. This lake is one of the deepest lakes in the world. This region grows the spiciest, syrupy, and complex coffee beans, all of the characteristics that make this coffee popular.

 

Most of Sumatra coffees are generally processed by the wet-hull technique in Indonesia. Nevertheless, a few locals make use of the sun drying technique in order to process their coffee beans. The coffee processed by this method is complex and usually has strong fruity flavors and juicy taste.

Java

Java is the capital of Indonesia. It’s the main island where coffee is produced in Indonesia. Besides this, Java is also popular as the ancient coffee growing island in the nation. In this region, the coffee crop was pioneered by Dutch colonial rulers in 1699. Since then, Java has been producing coffee. This is why the coffee produced in Java is called Java coffee.

 

However, coffee grown on this island suffered from roya, which is a coffee berry ailment, during the late 1800s. It’s a type of fungi and rust that affects the leaves of the coffee crops. Because of this coffee farming went back from the lowlands to the highlands (plateaus) on the island. This resulted in the area growing the best quality coffee in the world.

 

This coffee constitutes high-quality and high grown Arabica coffee beans. Most of the coffee growers in Java are state plantations. However, now private, small scale farmers are also quickly joining the coffee industry. This means that this region will produce more varieties and yields of coffee. Java coffee is yielded between June and October. It’s generally available in September.

 

Most of the coffee beans grown in Java are processed using the conventional processing technique, which is called wet hulling. This results in a syrupy and composite body and low acidity in the coffee beans.

 

Coffee beans from Java and Sumatra are quite alike in their flavor. It’s just that Java coffees are cleaner and sweeter whereas Sumatra coffee beans are more spicy and earthy.

Sulawesi

Sulawesi is an island in Indonesia, which was formerly called Celebes. In this region, the highest grown coffee is produced in Indonesia. Most of the coffee crops are produced in the Toraja area, which is the island’s southernmost part.

 

Mount Sesean divides this area. Coffee beans that are grown on the west side of this area generally go to the Sapan market and coffee beans grown on the east side of this area go to the Minanga town market. Today, these coffee beans are mixed with high-quality coffee beans and are sold as Sapan-Minanga.

 

These coffees are specifically high grown, generally up to 2000 meters higher than the average sea level. They are of the best quality owing to which they are smooth and clean. Sulawesi coffee is yielded between May and November. It’s generally available in August and September.

 

Sulawesi Coffee has a syrupy body and low acidity but not as much earthy as Sumatra and Java coffee beans. Because Sulawesi coffee is high grown, it’s quite dense and best when high roasted that doesn’t cause the loss of any particular flavor.

Bali

Bali coffee beans are generally harvested between May and October. These coffees are generally available in August and September. Bali produces one of the best Indonesian coffees. Most of the coffee beans produced in Bali are between Kintamani highlands and Mount Agung volcano. The volcano is active, which keeps the soil fertile and fresh with volcanic ash. “Sabuk Abian” is a conventional organization for coffee farmers in the region. It’s based on Hinduism.

 

Similar to other regions in Indonesia, the wet-hull technique is used to process the coffee in this region, although occasionally a few farmers use the wet processing or sun drying technique to process the coffee here. Bali coffees have high acidity as compared to other Indonesian coffees. They’ve sweet citrus hints like oranges and a sweet chocolaty flavor.

 

Some other areas where coffee is produced in Indonesia are Flores and East Timor. However, the main and popular coffee producing regions include Java, Sumatra, and Sulawesi.
