Description

Mansur is a collector not so differnt from many others buying parchment from North Sumatra, but our staff in Sumatra took to him based on his history or consitent quality deliveries and his focus on only buying from famers who are adeately serious to help him achieve Grade 1 again and again. He does not operate an army of trucks, but instead focuses around 3 communities: Pante Raya, Lampahan and Permata, all just slightly north of Lake Takengon, in Aceh. The roughly 300 farmers that sell to Mansur get paid cash directly upon delivery, to avoid the common problems of credit buying and loan sharking which can be quite common in Sumatra. The larger region of Bener Meriah produces about 60% of Aceh’s total volume, and is blessed by high altitude and a more diverse list of planted tree varieties. Most coffee from here is naturally organic, as the land includes a high amount of large shade trees (reducing the need for heavy vegetable intercropping, which often results in a lot more pesticied being used on the farm). Beans from Bener Meriah are often on the large size, with a bluish gray color, and with thick body and dark chocolate in the cup.
