This arabica coffee is harvested from plantations in Central Aceh region. It has fine aroma and low bitter taste. Aceh Gold coffee beans grow in the distinctive type of soil in the highlands, thus it almost impossible to find it in any other places outside its origin. It also famous for its classic balance of earthiness, bold and syrupy flavor. Sumatra coffees are known for their processing method. Rather than washed or natural, these beans go through a semi-washed, or wet-hulled process that is a combination of the two. After the coffee has been picked, it is pulped through a hand-cranked drum that removes almost all of the fruit and mucilage from the bean. After fermentation, the rest of the pulp is washed from the beans.
