This is the same coffee as the Holong Batak beans sourced in the Gayo region, it is just processed naturally. Most coffees that go through the natural process dry in their skin for between 2 and 4 weeks. Agape dries in its skin in an anaerobic environment for 4 weeks then dried under the sun for 1 to 2 weeks.
Ric Hariyanto, who owns Sriwijaya Coffee, was working on this project while his mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He took solace in a Carmelite monastery in East Java during that time for comfort and prayer. A testimony to his mother, he wanted to dedicate the name of this coffee to his family’s deep spiritual roots and faith: Agape, the highest form of love and charity.
We put a little disclaimer on this pour-over because it really is for the adventurous. We can almost guarantee you have never had a coffee like this: intense raisin, chocolate chips, Citra hops.
