Located near Tingkem in the Regency of Bener Meriah, the Sumatra Gayo Mandiri co-opertaive compromises of 989 farmers who grow their coffee in the rich and fertile volcanic loam soils which are comprised of a mixture of sand, silt and clay. This soil type combined with the climate allow for the perfect growing conditions of coffee giving the rich and full bodied, spicy and smokey coffees associated with the region. The Mandheling coffee represent all Arabica coffee in this area and the name derives from the Mandailing people who produce coffee in the Tapanuli region. The members of the Co-op receive training on tree management looking at the application of pesticides, pruning and picking ripe cherries to assure the best quality possible. Within this farmers also receive training on conservation of the natural environment looking at measures to prevent soil degradation, erosion and improving soil health. They are also educated on waste management as well as ensuring safe working conditions for themselves. Once picked the coffee undergoes a 12 hour fermentation process before then being dried for 2-3 days depending on the weather. Once the coffee has reached 30 % moisture, it is then sent for hulling and allowed to dry to 11% moisture content, so it can be stored without the risk of rotting. It is then packed in grain pro lined bags ready for shipping.
