The strong syrupy body and herbal spiciness are attributed to the traditional style of processing known as Giling Basah, or “wet-hulled.” Due to the humid environment of Sumatra, the sun cannot be used to dry out coffee beans. Machines are needed to strip the mucilage, a waxy inner covering on the coffee bean, from the green beans. The higher moisture content and heat used throughout processing contributes to a dark, full-bodied cup that goes great with cream.
