Coffee was planted in Sumatra by Dutch colonialists in the late 1600s under the guidance of the Dutch East India Trading Company (or VOC). Following early success in Java, coffee was then introduced to Sumatra, initially to the northern region of Aceh around Lake Tawar. Today coffee is still widely produced in these northern regions of Aceh and around the Lake Toba region.

Gegarang village is situated between Takengon and Lake Tawar in the Aceh Region of Sumatra, Indonesia. The village was part of the Indonesian transmigration program that brought many Javanese people to Aceh to reduce the over population of Java during the 1980s. The village has 46 members who grow their organic coffee on plots of around one hectare at an altitude of 1,500 to 1,600 metres above sea level. The coffee varietals are mainly bourbon with some P88 and a little catimore varietals, all of which is grown organically. The coffee is semi washed and wet hulled, a process that involves the part-drying of freshly pulped beans before removing the parchment and then allowing the swollen and 'blanched' beans to be sun dried to a deep green colour.
