About this coffee :

This Gayo Wine lot is a very special lot that has been produced by 10 coffee farmers who come from the small town of Batin Baru in Sumatra’s Aceh Province. These exceptional farmers mind their small farms with the help of family members using traditional methods of cultivation. They then deliver their cherry to Mercanta’s exporting partner in Indonesia, Indo CafCo, who have a buying centre and dry mill in Bener Meria (among others!).

Arabica coffee was first planted in the Aceh region of Indonesia in 1924. Today in the Gayo Highlands, coffee is grown by approximately 72,900 farming families, most of whom farm on less than 1 hectare. For the Gayo people, coffee is a way of life and a distinct and essential part of local culture. Most Gayonese are involved in coffee farming, and farms are passed down from generation to generation.

The main coffee areas are Bener Meriah and Aceh Tenga, and there is a saying that wherever you look in Bener Meriah Regency, you see coffee trees. The name of this coffee is meaningful. ‘Gayo’ refers both to the region and an ethnic group.

Geographically, Gayo is a region within the Aceh Province and Gayonese will be used to describe the ethnic group indigenous to the area. In the Indonesian language, "Senja" means dusk. It suggests that Gayo Senja is best to be enjoyed after office hours – the perfect coffee for kicking back and relaxing.

When The Coffee Producer Wine Coffee was savoured by professional coffee drinkers from Gayo Cupper Team, The Producer "Wine Coffee" was found to reach a cupping score of 86.25. A remarkable number of copies processed in a 'natural process'.

Because there is a taste of "Wine" in this coffee, The Producer was curious. Lest coffee contains alcohol. Then he decided to send his coffee to Jember to be tested in the laboratory. After going through laboratory tests found, it turns out Coffee does not contain alcohol, just a taste sensation only.

Then, where does the sensation of taste "Wine" in this Coffee come from? Apparently, this taste sensation comes from the fermented coffee peels during the processing. We find that this coffee is best to enjoy when the temperature cools down, it’s sweetness is highlighted throughout the cup. A coffee that complex and comforting.
