The first coffee trees in Indonesia were planted around modern-day Jakarta in the 17th century. By the early 1700s, the first exports of coffee left for Europe from the Port of Java on Dutch East India Company ships. Just a few years later, Indonesia was exporting several thousand pounds of coffee annually, making it the first country outside of the Arabian Peninsula and Ethiopia to cultivate coffee in larger volumes.

Indonesia is perhaps best known for its unique wet hulling process (giling basah) that contributes to it’s bold and deep flavors. On average, producers in Sumatra cultivate coffee on around 2.5 acres of land using their own micro-mills to depulp and dry coffee. Many of these farms are in remote, difficult to access regions. A vast network of collectors, processors and traders connect the farmer to the exporter.

Our Sumatra is sourced from around 3000 smallholders located near the shores of Lake Toba which was formed from a supervolcano in the province of North Sumatra. The volcanic rich soil of the area provides the perfect nutrients to help coffee plants thrive for both producers and the final flavor in your cup of coffee.
