Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Harvest

Sept - May

Export

Jan - Dec
Farmers pick coffee cherries in Sumatra, Indonesia.

Sumatra

Aceh is the westernmost region of the Indonesian island of Sumatra where coffee farms abound. The combination of high elevation and volcanic soil make for coffees that are rich and lower in acidity with notes of nutty dark chocolate. In the Takengon Highlands is a cooperative that honors Sumatran coffee traditions while moving forward with a focus on female empowerment and success.
