Wildan Mustofa and his wife Atieq Mustikaningtyas started their first coffee project in Sindangkerta, Weninggalih area in 2010. This later became the main growing area at his farm Java Frinsa Estate. Since the first year of production, Wildan has aimed to focus on quality which requires meticulous attention and processes. The cherries are washed to remove dirt and microbial contamination from the surface of the cherry skin, after cleaning, the lactobacillus culture is added to the cherries which are then put into plastic bags or plastic barrels and fermented anaerobically. The bags / barrels are rotated in the morning and evening and the gas is released, then the container is closed for 2 or 3 days. After fermentation the cherries are dried on raised beds.

Good tongue gripping structure and sourness up front - like a dry white wine. Short but with a lingering complex jammy and floral finish consisting of lavender, white tea and forest berry.

Very interesting

I have definitely drifted more towards washed coffees as time goes on, but this is fun to try. The taste really lingers.

Interesting, but not for everyone

Definitely an intriguing coffee. Too many sour notes when brewed via my standard methods. Tried adding more water (watering it down a bit) and it was more palatable. I like the lingering finish. That said, the sourness makes this a rough morning coffee for me personally. Fun to try once, for it is indeed complex and interesting, but I wouldn't get it again.

Love the layered notes and I always gravitate towards a nice sour bite
