Sumatra Kerenci Honey
The Sumatra Kerenci Honey is a special coffee in our book. Our first taste of this coffee was 3 years ago when for whatever reason we put a Sumatra on the cupping table. Our historical experience is that most Sumatra coffees tend to be very heavy, tobacco based coffees and are not to our liking. This coffee blew us away with its sweet nectar tones and guava notes. I clearly remember one of my fellow cuppers simply picking up the cup and drinking the entire sample. Not cool, but oh so tasty. We were incredibly pleased to get our hands on more of this coffee this year, and look forward to sharing this very unique cup with you.
The Kerinci Valley is a doughnut hole surrounded by Seblat National Park. More than 300,000 people live in this fertile highland valley. Almost the entire population of the valley relies on agriculture for their family income. Our partners at Santiang Exports are working to provide conservation solutions to the producers they work with, training them in sustainable practices, providing quality seedlings, and commit to not grow their coffee within the National Park, verified by on-site visits.
This lot is made from cherries from 600 small producers. Kerinci coffee thrives in rich soil on the slope of the highest active Volcano in Southeast Asia.
