Weh Ilang coffee is grown in one of the highest valleys in the Takengon area, at approximately 1600 meters above sea level. Temperatures there can reach the freezing point at times. Many years ago, farmers would light fires in their farms to deter frost from happening, especially in the July-September season. Weather there can be very unpredictable and snow sometimes falls late at night around 2 to 3 AM. Due to the weather and elevation, coffee from this area tends to take longer to ripen, which contributes to its bold, ripe fruit flavors, exquisite palm-sugar sweetness, and overall brighter, cleaner cup. Coffees in Sumatra are traditionally processed using a method called Giling Basah, or wet-hulling. This coffee is roasted to 440 degrees, giving it a full body and rich chocolatey flavor. Excellent hot and as a cold brew.
