Reye Gayo is a classic Sumatra coffee with enough upper register complexity to make it a unique single-origin offering.  A tangy introduction will provide candied grapefruit notes on top of sweet roasted barley body with the freshness of a raw snow pea wishing a dry farewell. 

This coffee was Wet-Hull processed which is a common processing method in Indonesia, particularly in Sumatra where nearly all coffee is processed this way, attributing the "classic Sumatra" earthiness. The coffee is harvested and de-pulped by the farmer then given a brief "pre-dry" (30-50% moisture) before being transported to a market where it is hulled (parchment layer removed) while still in its high-moisture state (i.e. Wet-Hulled). At this point the coffee is spread on drying beds to get it down to the standard 11-13% moisture content in preparation for export.
