trip-medan

During two days, Quintino’s Team “Jalan-Jalan” in Arabica coffee plantations and gets cupping formation in Medan. The objective of the visit was to learn and see all of the process from the plant to the green bean step by step, because it’s the best way to appreciate the work and the time to get a high quality coffee bean that Quintino’s sources at each season.

We took time to discuss with farmers about their plantations, their difficulties to harvest and to process cherries alone.

The cupping in Medan consisted on tasting and comparing the taste of Arabica from different area: pantai raya, sidikarang, golden Sumatra and old pea beans.
