From the Karo Highlands near Lake Toba in the Lintong region, the Sumatra Karo Highlands coffee is one of our favorites. After picking, the beans are partially sun-dried then processed in a semi-wet state using a unique traditional method called Giling Basah, which literally means “wet grinding.” This gives the beans (triple-picked for size and quality) a unique bluish-green appearance. The result is a coffee that is often described as semi-sweet, earthy and herbaceous. We roast this coffee to a full second crack, giving it a creamy, fuller body and a smoother overall taste.
