The Badger lives on as a SteamDot legend and after a few years hiatus, has made its return! Red Badger is a symbol of the movement started by Red Goni Importers about 7 years ago in supporting orphanages in Sumatra. The humid climate in Indonesia makes it difficult for farmers to dry coffee, and as such, the unique processing method know as wet-hulling is widely practiced. Coffees have the cherry skins removed and are “quickly” dried for a few hours down to a moisture content of about 50%. At this point, the bean is swollen in the parchment. After the coffee is sold, it goes on to the mill to be further dried and “wet hulled” to remove the parchment layer. After this, the coffee is dried to a final 12-13% moisture content and is ready for export. The flavor profile for Red Badger is really unique for a Sumatran coffee, having vibrant acidity and citrus forward notes, followed by lots of sweetness. This is complemented by fine cedar origin notes in the finish, resulting in an overall well-balanced cup.
