This coffee's dynamic, shifting flavor charms us. The first smell is of berries which morphs into juicy watermelon in the mouth only to twist again ending with a cabernet-like pepper. It also makes fantastic single-origin espresso.
Sidikilang is a small area in the highlands of Sumatra, close to Lake Toba and the more famous Lintong region. Though most of the area's small holders raise a local mutation of the Typica cultivar, the Wahana estate focuses on a Catimor/Typica hybrid which has greater resistance to coffee rust. To promote a healthy local ecosystem, the estate donates shade trees, organic fertilizer and coffee seeds to surrounding farms. It also maintains a nature reserve on its property.
