The Wanoja coffee farmers group founded by Hj. Eti Sumiati are located in West Java, Bandung, Kamojang. Wanoja itself means ’woman’ in Sundanese, as it was initially established with only female coffee farmers in the group. Wanoja grew rapidly with a total of 55 members, both male and female and the mills are now owned by Eti’s son, Satrea.
The process of anaerobic honey begins with selecting coffee cherries that are ripe, have good sugar content determined by the fruit thickness. Coffee cherries are then fermented for 5 days, depulped, and dried for 10 days under the sun until the moisture content reaches below 12% before the coffee is rested for 2 months. Once the resting process is complete, the coffee is hulled and enters the sorting processes; size, density and hand sorting.
