This coffee consists of many smallholder farms that surround the estate and town. Wahana Estate has developed a program to distribute the Typica and Bourbon seeds that were grown, harvested and delivered to build this exceptional blend from the growers in the area. The program buys back the collected cherries from the mature plants and processes the coffee in the Giling Basah method on site at Wahana Estate.

Giling Basah, the unique method used in the production of Sumatran coffees, results in a very full body with a concentrated flavor, garnished with herbal nuances and a spicy finish. It involves hulling the parchment off the bean at roughly 50 percent moisture content (compared to 10 to 12 percent moisture, in most other regions). This unique process results in Sumatra's trademark flavor profile (low acidity, richness that lingers on the back of the palate, and a chocolate finish) and gives the green beans their signature color.
