About Smallholder producers of Indonesia

This coffee, sourced from Jagong Mill, is a beautiful example of how great Sumatran Coffees can be when harvesting, processing, and export is done well. ​In fact, it’s named IKA Red Cherry for the grower's dedication to picking the coffee fruit at the peak of quality and flavor potential. Growers bring their ripe, red cherries to Jagong mill, which is run by Mr. Irham Junus along with his son Andi and daughter Ina.

Irham’s insistence on processing only ripe cherries is turning out some very unique coffees. Often by the time coffees from Sumatra travel the supply lines from picking to processing to export, not all is well. Irham works to control each step along the way while still employing the traditional “Giling Basah” (wet-hulled) method Sumatran coffees are known for.

Anchorhead Coffee

Sporting a moody, maritime vibe and serving up killer coffee and their own baked goods, Anchorhead Coffee is doing coffee right in Washington state (Duvall, to be exact, with café locations in downtown Seattle, Issaquah, and Bellevue). Launched in 2013, Anchorhead sailed right into the big leagues, winning the 2015 “America’s Best Espresso” competition with their Ethiopian coffee, finaling for a Good Food Award with their Guatemalan roast, and collecting numerous awards at annual Golden Bean competitions.

When long-time audio engineers Mike Steiner and Jake Paulson decided to wind down traveling the world, combining their passion for coffee into a cafe and roastery just made sense. With Mike handling the roasting and sourcing aspects and Jake developing the cafe and marketing side, Anchorhead continues to expand their vision of sourcing expressive, lively coffees, then roasting them in a way that brings out the intrinsic character of each. Yup. They love coffee, cafe culture, and serving up a sweet and balanced cup they're proud to put the Anchorhead Coffee name on. (They also love toys like drones, cameras, dirt bikes and motorcycles).
