Aceh Province, located north of Sumatra Island in Indonesia is known to produce one of the most remarkable coffees in the world. This lot is produced by a group of farmers in Bener Meriah of Aceh in the Wonosari zone. Some farmers hand pulp the cherries while others send to collectors to pulp. The goal is to have one pulping machine in proximity to a few farmers to be shared; that way they can pulp their own cherries and can increase their profit margins. Over the last 5 years, continuous education and training to farmers through collectors have resulted in increased quality in the Wonosari supply chain. The yield has slowly increased which in turn provides a better life for farmers as well as collectors. Even in season when yields are lower than usual, the quality still stands out in this special coffee- which makes this a successful project for everyone involved. 



Story

Home-Roasting Coffee

Coffee roasting is the application of heat to coffee beans in order to create chemical reactions that develop the complex aromatic and flavor components of the bean. The goal is to achieve a delicate balance of flavor, acidity, body and aroma that is both harmonious and intriguing. It is absolutely possible to roast coffee at home and with some practice, achieve this balance. It’s most important to begin with the best green coffee available. The quality of a cup of coffee is directly linked to the quality of the green coffee from which it was roasted and brewed. As a result, it becomes imperative to choose green coffee from only the most preferred green-coffee sellers.

Equipment:

There are many different ways of roasting coffee at home. The options are only dependent on how creative and innovative you want to be. The Roasterie utilizes the Convection Method of roasting. This is where heat is applied to the coffee beans evenly, at the same rate by suspending the batch in a vortex or column of hot air, commonly known as air-roasting.

Home Air Roasters range from relatively basic to extremely high-tech. On average, they are significantly more economical than home drum roasters with the same ability to adjust time, temperature and even air flow. We recommend the Nesco Professional home roaster series because of its patented catalytic exhaust system to control smoke, and its profile roasting ability combined with an attractively low cost.
