This coffee is sourced and imported by Nordic Approach. Here’s some information from their website:
For the first time we are also buying some limited amounts of wet hulled coffee. We have generally been very sceptic to this kind of preparation and drying. That was actually why we started to buy from Frinsa in the first place, as they were focused on fully washed and properly drying in parchment. The wet hulled method is something that are widely used in Indonesia for the general commodities. They basically remove the parchment while the coffee is still wet and finish off the drying in greens. This do create another flavor profile for sure, they can be good and very intense and characteristic, but often becomes to rough. But Wildan believes that if you find the right method, and do it with care you can produce something unique and really good. And what we cupped was tasting very good and different from everything else. And we are excited to have this in stock for the first time ever.
Wildan and his wife Atieq started their first coffee project in Sindangkerta, Weninggalih area in 2010. This later became the main growing area at he’s farm Java Frinsa Estate. Since the first year of production, Wildan has aimed to focus on quality which requires meticulous attention and processes. While the majority of Indonesian producers are doing the wet hulled coffees, even for specialty, Wildan is focusing on the fully washed. Besides the quality, and social and economic impact for the community, we believe the coffee project also have long term benefits for water conservation and reforestation .
