Sumatra Kayu Aro is sourced from family-owned farms organized around an export company called CV.Yudi Putra, located in the Lintong district within the province of North Sumatra.

Yudi Putra is a family-owned export company that operates its own mill and collaborates with farmers to access the international coffee markets.  Yudi Putra is sourcing this lot from Koperasi ALKO, an association of 294 producers who cultivate coffee around the Kerinci District, which includes Mount Kerinci (the highest volcano in Indonesia) and home to the rare Sumatran tiger found in the Kerinci Seblat, the largest national park in Sumatra.

The coffee’s hallmark Indonesian flavor is the product of wet-hulling, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed.
