PERU – Sumatra Alam Korintji – Natural Fermented
This is Nordic Approach’s (which is the importer) second year for this project. Kirinchi is an area south west in Sumatra where we think there is great potential. There are a few cooperatives there, and we started this project in cooperation with a local small roaster in Bandung in Java, called David Irawan, that really loves to engage with the producers and work on quality preparation together with the farmers. Based on our experience from last year we decided to do one prep only, an improved natural process. This is still on a relatively small scale, and it’s not David’s main business. But we also realised that if we wanted to do a different process we needed help on the ground. The outcome has been great.
Alam Korintji, also called Alko Cooperative, is a cooperative with about 400 members, and about 320 hectares in total. They grow coffee from 1300 – 1650 masl, its mixed varieties, but mainly Sigararutang and Andung Sari. The coffee cherries are floated and sorted, then dried as one layer in green houses for the first 5 days. Then they slowly build up the layers. Drying takes around 25 days in total.
Ett relativt nytt project där Nordic Approach har valt att gå in och hjälpa till i ett område i Sydvästra Sumatra där det finns stor potential. Det här är ett samarbete med ett lokalt litet rosteri i Badung i Java som heter David Irawan. Vi får ut ett kaffe som har toner av öreter och lätt ”funky”. Även smaker av Apelsin, Svartavinbär, yogurt. Spännande säger vi, vad säger ni 🙂 (250gram)
