Variety: Heirloom, also known as Java Typica

Abyssinia Heirloom | Our Crop

On a trip to Gayo in 2012, I was fortunate to find a crop of Abyssinia owned by third generation farmer who was willing to part with seedlings that had volunteered under the mature trees. The seedlings made it back to Simalungun in my backpack and survived for our first crop of 55 trees. The timing of the 2012 visit was not during harvest season, so there were only green cherry. He invited me to return for cherry in the future. So in 2013 I did.  The cherries were propagated into seed and created an additional 100 trees. Thanks to his generosity, LLO has a healthy crop of AB3 and I am forever grateful. This is a special crop for me and I enjoy every moment spent developing and maintaining the trees and the garden.

A pure heirloom variety, Abyssinia is slow growing and produces a single annual harvest of exceptional quality coffee fruit. The large bean size and elongated shape are the trademarks of this variety. Organically Grown, Processed & Roasted on Lisa & Leo’s Organic farm in Simalungun, North Sumatra.

Cup Profile: Processed as either Dry Natural or Fully Washed, this heirloom yields a clarity of refined fruit and floral sweetness with sparkling acidity and a well balanced silky body. This quietly elegant coffee will makes your senses tingle.

Abyssinia is available only as Medium Roasted Whole Beans. Order on the SHOP TAB or in the USA contact @wade_merantau_coffee on instagram. We ship anywhere in Indonesia or the USA. Sorry, no green bean sales..
