Description

Gazali, the owner of this 19-hectare estate in Bener Meriah, Aceh, has been in coffee for many years, having grown up in a family owning coffee esates around North Sumatra. His estate sits in a small pocket of Benerah Meriah, Aceh, called Pantan Lues. Estates of this size are relatively common in Sumatra, but the difference with Gazali is that he focuses his efforts on producing for a single estate profile instead of simply producing high volume to sell by the truckloads to brokers in Medan. Over the last few years he has been able to improve consistency and achieve a caramel cup profile instad of the standard Gayo dark chocolate profile. Our staff in Sumatra has known Gazali for some years, but 2020 was the first import of his coffee by Crop to Cup. As of 2020 his trees numbered a little over 33,000, and his seedling nursery is in process to plant an additional 8,500 trees across 5 new hectares. In an area so dominated by large brokers and untraceable multiple-container lots, Gazali’s focus on something unique is setting a new trend for Suamtran specialty coffee.
