A trip to Sumatra’s Aceh area, North Sumatra and Lintong, and to Sulawesi, way back in 2008.
I returned from SumatraIndonesians are available as a unique wet-hulled or dry-hulled (washed) coffees. Giling Basah is the name for the wet-hulling process in Bahasa language, and will have more body... ...more and SulawesiSulawesi coffees are low-acid with great body and that deep, brooding cup profile akin to Sumatra. The coffee is sometimes known as Celebes, which was the Dutch colonial... ...more; it was a long, long trip that seemed all too short at the same time. Go figure…
I divided the pictures into groups because there are a bazillion images:
- North Sumatra, including Lintong and the Lake Toba area
- The Aceh District of Sumatra (actually north of North Sumatra!) which includes Takengon and the areas around Lake Tawar
- …. and then Sulawesi and Tana Toraja, an amazing, mystical place, where I handily whacked my head crawling through a tunnel in a Toraja traditional burial cave. It still hurts. –Tom
