Story of the bean: The Simalungun region has long been an agricultural powerhouse with rich volcanic soils, stable climates, and a range of altitudes that are perfect for growing Sumatran coffee.

Small farmers around the region supply coffee to the Tiga Raja Mill, which uses a wet hulling process where the outer skin is removed from the coffee cherry and allowed to rest before it is washed and dried producing a flavor profile that is sweet and complex. The mill owners are actively involved in educating farmers about how to achieve better quality and sustainably produced coffee.
