The processing of our coffee beans takes place in modern plants and upholds international standards of quality. However, we rather combine traditional methods with advanced technologies while catering to the global market, to sustain the distinctive characteristics of Indonesia’s finest coffee.
Our processing is subject to rigorous control, in accordance to the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) and other international standards. The following sections will tell you how do we process our coffee beans:
The first step in the process is drying. Drying will reduce water content of coffee beans. To keep the coffee beans as natural and fresh as possible we dry them under the sun. When the water content of coffee beans reaches certain level, coffee beans are ready for hulling.
Using a modern huller machine, coffee beans are hulled to remove chaffs from the beans. This process produces fresh coffee beans. At this time, we have a clean fresh coffee beans. However the water content is still not optimal. The next step is to sun dry the coffee beans again.
To further reduce the water content of the coffee beans to reach the optimal level (moisture content max. 13%), clean, and fresh coffee beans are carefully spread out under the sun again.
Screening is process to separate bad coffee beans from good ones. This process is done by sutton machine that separates bad coffee beans from good ones based on the weight of coffee bean. Lesser coffee beans are slightly lesser in weight than the top ones that we reserve for your convenience.
This process filters coffee beans based on its diameter. This process is done by a sieve machine.
At this point, previous processes have produced good, clean coffee beans sorted by its diameter. To further enhance the quality of the coffee beans, we use labor to manualy pick up defect coffee beans.
Last but not less important process is packaging. We are aware of the importance of packaging to keep the quality of the coffee beans. We pack our coffee beans in jute bags and store it in our warehouse. At this point coffee beans are ready for export.
