Sumatra Lake Toba Samosir Honey GrainPro is sourced from three estates (Sidalogan, Sibisa, and Motung) organized around the Sipangan Bolon mill, located near the shores of Lake Toba (formed from a supervolcano) in the province of North Sumatra on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. A family-owned export company called Yudi Putra operates the mill and collaborates with farmers to access the international coffee markets, ensuring greater earnings from direct trade relationships. This lot was prepared in the honey or pulped-natural style, a process first pioneered in El Salvador and Costa Rica, and rarely used in Indonesia, where the cherry skin is removed and the parchment is dried while still covered in the mucilage.
