Trenggiling is the name for the endangered Indonesian pangolin, which lives in Sumatra and more specifically in the coffee growing regions of North Sumatra and Aceh. The species is protected and threatened by illegal trade.
Trenggiling is also a nod to 'giling basah' (wet hulled process). This coffee displays a classic Indonesian cup profile: full bodied, earthy, spicy, with flavors of dark chocolate and herbal notes. This unique flavor profile is rarely achieved from other origins and owes to the combination of geography, soil, climate, varieties, and the wet-hulled processing method.

Our Duma, named for the Swahili word for Cheetah, marries an understanding of roasters’ and farmers’ needs to produce a consistent, 80+ SCA cup blend that’s available in larger volumes.
Duma is sourced primarily through the Nairobi Coffee Exchange Auction. While farmers may make more money when their small, higher quality lots are sold at auction, the small size of such lots means that they still depend on selling the rest of their harvest at reasonable prices. This is where we step in! We ensure that ALL farmers' hard work gets the best possible return. Duma offers roasters consistent products in greater volume for blending while ensuring a good price for farmers for their whole harvest.
