This type of coffee is distinguished by its full body, distinct herbal tones, and with a low acidity. This low acidity makes it particularly attractive for people who have a sensitivity to the otherwise healthy organic acids in coffee.

Sumatran coffee farmers don’t use chemicals, which slows down the harvesting process, but ensures only mature beans are collected. Immature coffee beans have less dynamic flavor and tend to make a bitter coffee. But the real secret sauce to Sumatra coffee is how the farmers process the beans after they’re harvested, and in turn, how an artisan roaster decides to small-batch roast the beans, which brings out the flavors the Giling Basah process added to the coffee.

Ever since its introduction in the 1970s, coffee production in Sumatra has embraced a distinctive method known as wet-hulling, or Giling Basah. This process involves swiftly removing the hull from freshly harvested coffee fruits while they retain their moisture, hence the term "wet." Subsequently, the beans are placed in a sealed bag overnight, allowing a gentle fermentation to take place. The following day, they are spread out to dry for a few hours, either on raised screen beds or in the coffee farmers' own backyards. Once the coffee reaches an ideal moisture level of around 14%, it is procured by importers/exporters and packed in jute sacks for shipment to its final destination.

The wet-hulling method predominates in Sumatra due to the region's volatile tropical climate, which grants farmers limited time—typically four hours or less per day—to dry the coffee. As a result, the beans retain approximately five times the moisture content of water-processed and sun-dried coffee. This unique Giling Basah process yields a coffee with a remarkably low acidity and a distinct earthy profile, some even describing it as having a subtle mushroom-like flavor. The aroma of Sumatra coffee exudes a captivating woodland vibe, with a hint of umami in its lingering finish, which undoubtedly contributes to the adoration of coffee enthusiasts who favor Sumatran beans.

Black pepper.
The most traded spice in the world, black pepper is the dried fruit of the pepper plant and is used to flavor a variety of applications. The unripe berries of the pepper plant are picked when turning yellow and immediately dried after harvest with the skin on. As it dries, enzymes in the berries cause the skin to turn black and wrinkly.

White pepper.
A milder form of pepper, with a lightly fermented aroma and taste, white pepper is grown on the same vine as black pepper. However, white pepper differs because it is made from peppercorns that are picked ripe and processed to remove the outer skin, leaving behind a smooth white finish on the berry. White pepper tastes bright and sharp and slightly more herbaceous than black pepper.
