Founded in 2006, with the aim of guaranteeing traceability all along the supply chain, Permata Gayo manages all aspects of coffee production, improving both consistency and quality. The Galling-Basah process is unique to Sumatra, and involves three steps, depending on moisture content: ‘Gabah’, wet parchment coffee which is dried immediately and hulled; ‘Labu’, wet green beans at about 30-40% humidity; and finally ‘Assalan’, which is exported at 12-13% humidity. This process produces a deep blue or green hue to the raw coffee, creating a special cupping profile.
- All our coffee beans are heat sealed at the time of roasting. If ordering ground coffee, in order to freshly grind the coffee beans to your requirements, the first seal will be broken on the top of the bag at the time of grinding, the zip-lock seal will be closed before dispatch. This does not apply to unground beans.
- If you are placing a back-order of this item, coffee may take up to 3 additional days prior to dispatch/drop-off of your order
