Hacienda La Minita, PT Volkopi Indonesia and North Sumatra Coffee Forum

Part 1: Hacienda La Minita, PT Volkopi Indonesia and North Sumatra Coffee Forum.

"North Sumatran Coffee has its own specific attributes that are prized by coffee drinkers in the USA” said  Drew Zent to Sabam Malau in front of Michael Lutz, Sabik Galindo and Wahyu at PT Volkopi Indonesia’s cupping laboratory on Saturday 10 December 2011.

Drew Zent visited PT Volkopi Indonesia as a long time buyer of arabica coffee from North Sumatra Province of Indonesia. Drew Zent described the Hacienda La Minita as a fast growing company that is unique and different from other coffee companies. As a fast growing coffee company Hacienda La Minita requires coffee from North Sumatra due to its specific attributes.  He said that he needs coffee beans which have attributes such as favorable acidity (liveliness, brightness), medium-high in body and pleasing sweetness as well as very good in balance. I was positively impressed by his elaborations concerning Hacienda La Minita’s philosophy as well as his knowledge about tasting, trading and maintaining the quality of coffee.
