Quick Overview

Jagong village is located in the Central Aceh District south of Aceh’s capital Takengon and around 35 kilometres from Lake Tawar; there are 25 members of the Jagong village cooperative who grow organic bourbon and P88 arabica alongside cabbages, chillies and red beans on land that averages around one hectare in size.

Product Description

Jagong village was established during the 1980’s as a result of the Indonesian transmigration program, when
Javanese people were offered land and a new start in Sumatra in an attempt to reduce the population on the
overcrowded island of Java. The village is located in the Central Aceh District south of Aceh’s capital Takengon and around 35 kilometres from Lake Tawar; there are 25 members of the Jagong village cooperative who grow organic bourbon and P88 arabica alongside cabbages, chillies and red beans on land that averages around one hectare in size. An altitude of around 1,600 metres above sea level and rich and fertile soils bring about coffees that are unrivalled in their depth of body and often have fascinating complexity – possibly due to the way that the beans are processed.

The coffee is semi washed and wet-hulled, a process that involves the part-drying of freshly pulped beans before removing the parchment then allowing the swollen and ‘blanched’ beans to be sun dried to a deep green colour. This coffee is also Organic & Fairtrade certified.

There is a low acidity (typical of Sumatra/Indonesian coffees) with a heavy dark chocolate notes with rich lingering intesity. The cup is very smooth on the finish. Delicious as a brewed coffee, but stands up very well in espresso. We're roasting this to a fuller medium at the moment.....
