Many of the islands of Indonesia were formed by volcanoes. The mountainous geography and resulting rich soil are ideal for growing coffee.
Sumatra Mandheling coffee is grown on the lofty volcanic slopes of Mount Leuser near the port of Padang, in the Batak region of west-central Sumatra.
The unique method used in its production results in a very full body with a concentrated flavor, garnished with herbal nuances with a spicy finish. Giling Basah, the name of the traditional Indonesian process, involves hulling the parchment of the coffee bean at roughly 50% moisture content, hence also the names Wet-hulled process or semi-washed process. For comparison, most coffees beans are hulled at 10-12% moisture level.
The resulting trademark flavor is of low acidity, a richness that lingers at the back of the palate, and note of chocolate evident in the finish. The beans are always a signature dark green, almost jade-like colour.

Fazenda Isidro Pereira
REGION: Carmo de Minas

VARIETAL: Yellow Bourbon
PRODUCER: Luis Paolo
CUP CHARACTERISTICS: Caramel, chocolate, dried berries, nectarine
Fazenda IP was first purchased in 1967, by Isidro Pereira, father of Luiz Paolo.
By 1974, Luiz began expanding Fazenda IP: It now covers an area of 720 hectares. This estate cultivates Yellow Catuai, Yellow Catucai, Acaia, and Yellow Bourbon. The coffee is processed using both the natural and pulped- natural method. Nestled outside the city of Carmo de Minas, the farm sits at a range of 950–1200 meters. The high altitude favors a slow ripening of cherry and permits selective picking, which are decisive factors to produce coffees of exceptional quality.
