Natural Anaerobic

Coffee cherries undergo fermentation without being exposed to oxygen. The cherries are sealed in airtight plastic tanks for 24 hours to achieve this anaerobic environment. During anaerobic fermentation, specific strains of yeast and bacteria interact with the sugars in the coffee mucilage, producing distinct compounds that contribute to the final flavour profile of the coffee. Afterwards, natural drying occurs, allowing coffee cherries to dry in the open air, under the sun, without mechanical dryers.

Coffee variety

Indonesia local variety


Andungsari (also known as Andung Sari and Andong Sari) is a dwarf coffee plant. It was initially developed through a selection of Catimor plants by the Indonesian Coffee and Cocoa Research Institute. Andungsari grows best above 1,250 MASL.

It has high productivity (2.5 tonnes per hectare) and an excellent cup profile. However, it require a lot of care. Today, this variety is grown widely in Kayo Aro in the province of Jambi, Sumatra.


An improved Ateng selection of Timor variety with Bourbon reportedly. The specifics are a little doubtful (Timor x Bourbon) as it is not the result of a plant breeding program, but a selection from North Sumatra, Tapanuli area. It was said to be discovered in 1988 in a coffee farm owned by Opung Opan located in Batu Gajah Hamlet, North Paraningan Village, Lintongnihuta District according to local farmers. What is sure is that Sigarar Utang translates as “Repay The Debt!” in Batak language.
