This coffee comes to us from our friends at the Wahana Estate in northern Sumatra and gets its name for the elongated cherries and beans its unique variety is known for. The Estate was started in 2005 with the mission of producing and delivering specialty, high grade coffees using sustainable agricultural practices and offering clear traceability. It is located in the Sidikalang-Dairi and is comprised of 250 Hectars of land, 30 of which comprise the coffee nursery.
Wahana also houses a washing station and mill inside their estate which affords them better ability to produce a higher quality product and a more consistent cup. These structures also allow them to buy cherries from other farmers and quickly put them into production if they need to. Being good stewards of both the land and the coffee community at large, the owners and workers of The Wahana Estate makes social responsibility a priority and even offer a support center for farmers who are in need of assistance.
Over the years, a special partnership between Hubbard & Cravens and The Wahana Estate has sprung up, involving many visits to one another’s facilities and even coffee buying trips together. We know that we can rely on them for not only their steadfast loyalty as partners, but also for the high quality product they produce.
Expect notes of peach, jasmine, and milk chocolate accompanied by a medium body and mild, fruit acidity.
