This Fully washed lot was produced by Mr. Lukman, who hails from the small town of Semendo, in Sumatra’s Kerinci Regency, located in Sumatra’s South. Mr. Lukman, who like many Indonesians goes by only one name, farms his small farm with the help of family members using traditional methods of cultivation. He then delivers cherry to Mercanta’s exporting partner in Indonesia, Indo CafCo, who have a buying centre and dry mill in Bandar Lampung (among others). 

Mr. Lukman, has been a coffee farmer for 19 years. He is the first generation to farm coffee in his family. He puts a great deal of attention and care into farming and harvest activities. Besides planting coffee, Mr. Lukman grows vegetables for additional income. 

Mr. Lukman processes his own coffee to parchment stage. During the harvest season, he takes great care to selectively hand pick only the ripest cherries. These are then floated to remove any underweight or damaged cherries before being pulped in his small mechanical pulper. After pulping, the coffee is delivered to a tank to be fermented for around 24 hours. After fermentation is complete, the coffee is fully washed and delivered to raised beds to dry until a moisture level of around 12% is reached. The parchment coffee is then delivered to Indo CafCo, where it is milled and prepared for export. 

Roast level: medium roast.

Sumatra Kerinci is very delicious in every kind of coffee method.
