About Gunung Tujuh
With Indonesian coffees, half the battle is overcoming logistical challenges like rugged roads and unpredictable torrents of rain. Working with cooperatives that collaborate with farmers is a critical step to overcoming these challenges and ensures that coffee safely makes it to the international market. This particular lot comes from a longstanding relationship with a cooperative called Kopi Alam Kerinci (ALKO), which now has 516 members who cultivate on small family-owned plots of land located around Mount Kerinci, the highest volcano in Indonesia. The cooperative works closely with producers to decrease forest encroachment. Their farm management practices create a protective buffer for the Kerinci Seblat national park, which encircles the entire Kerinci valley with unparalleled natural beauty and habitat for the Sumatran Tiger. The cooperative also has a program that exchanges roasted coffee for trash collected by hikers who visit the Kerinci Seblat national park.

During the harvest, producers deliver their cherries to the cooperative’s central mill where they are carefully sorted before depulping and overnight fermenting. Then the coffee is washed and laid out on patios to shed the excess water from the parchment-covered beans. Next, the coffee takes a detour from the conventional path of processing in other origins, wherein, the coffee parchment is removed while the coffee still has a high moisture content. This wet-hulling process, called Giling Basah in the Indonesian language, leaves the coffee bean exposed while drying on patios to a moisture percentage acceptable for export. This Indonesian processing method gives the bean its unique bluish color and the hallmark Indonesian profile.

Good but Not Amazing

We enjoy most of the medium roasts from Red Bay but this one was merely good. Many of the others are really great! Would probably skip this one going forward.

Smooth depth

This is a delicious coffee. I really am a fan of Indonesian coffees, especially Sumatra, although for some reason many roasters roast Sumatran dark, overwhelming the native favorite with the almost burnt taste.

This coffee, Gunung Tujuh, is a medium roast--perfect for the bean--enabling the flavor to be prominent and not masked by a darker roast.

This is a smooth deep coffee. I make it in my Moka pot. I have two pots a day so I really must be enjoying this coffee. Of course, I enjoy all my Red Bay beans--Coltrane! and East Fourteenth! especially. Carver's Dream is nice in that it is not thoroughly dark so the flavor is still rich. Red Bay coffee? Yes.
