Though Ankola is dry processed, the method includes washing the dried husk of the coffee cherry (fruit) in hot water which provides a more uniform appearance of the coffee beans than the typical dry processed coffee, and likely contributes to the coffee’s fine flavor. Like other Sumatran coffees, it typically has a low, mellow acidity.
