Final Hand-picking, Volkopi, Medan

Final Hand-picking, Volkopi, Medan

The coffee is run through the gravity table and screener again in Medan, and then hand-picked a final time. But Medan is so hot and humid, it's a wonder the coffee doesn't absorb more moisture here, and can actually be dried at all in this climate. To do this, you need heat, and such temperatures applied to green coffee in the final stage, out of parchment... that's not good either. Medan, Sumatra

Gajah Mountain coffee

Gajah Mountain coffee

Next day, sorting coffee at Gajah Mountain facility in Takengon. This static sorting (not on a conveyor belt) is usually better, and it seems easier on the eyes for the workers. Aceh, Sumatra
