Semi-washed, Giling Basah Coffees
Picking, pulping, hulling and drying is all done by hand in Northern Sumatra. As everywhere in Indonesia, the coffee here is "Giling Basah" or semi-washed. To create Giling Basah, the coffee parchment is only marginally dried and then stripped from the bean. The still moist green bean is then sun dried for another two to three days before being triple handpicked.
