The coffee processing occurs at Frinsa Estate, with their wet mill situated at 1400 masl. Equipped with a ventilated storage space and a dry mill, they exercise meticulous control over their product journey, from harvest, to grading, to sorting, and shipment. The Frinsa team is well-versed in processing techniques, navigating challenges posed by the climate to achieve clean, transparent profiles in their coffees. Processing: Extended Fermentation Natural Lactobacillus. This lot undergoes a 3 day semi-anaerobic fermentation process. The cherries are picked, washed, and then put in tanks or plastic bags with small holes, and then fermented for 2-3 days with Lactobacillus, a probiotic bacterium used for more refined fermentation. Due to the wet, humid climate, most of their coffees are also pre-dried in their greenhouse, a groundbreaking shift for the Indonesian market. The coffee is then dried on the ground or parabolic dryers for 14-20 days. This has resulted in more uniform drying, and therefore more consistent outcomes. It’s our first time purchasing from Wildan and certainly not last as his coffees are real gems and stand out of anything we have cupped to date from Indonesia.
