SUMATRA MANDHELING GR1 TP - Arisarina Cooperative
t of the thousands of islands that shape the Indonesian archipelago, only a few have the right conditions to grow coffee, and one of them is Sumatra. One particular feature of Sumatra coffee is the processing, which has a direct impact on the characteristics of the bean. Most of these coffees undergo what is called a semi-washed process or Giling Basah in Bahasa Indonesia language. Another common term in the Sumatran preparation is Double Picking (DP, also TP for Triple Picking) which means that beans are hand-picked twice for defects so as to obtain an exportable product with maximum 11 defects.
