Wahana Estate

Wahana Estate

As part of our recent coffee discovery trip to Sumatra, the Dimattina Coffee crew were very fortunate to be able to spend a few days at Wahana Estate - which is located in the village of Lae Mungkur, Sidikalang North Sumatra. The drive to the estate from Medan (the capital of North Sumatra) is about 180km, however Indonesian roads and traffic makes this a long 5 hour journey. Luckily Indonesian drivers are fearless, and their ability to pass on tight corners, would do most Formula 1 drivers proud. That, and the fact that road rage doesn’t exist in Sumatra, made our journey memorable. The estate is located at an altitude of 1,300-1,500 metres and covers about 500 hectares. About 250 hectares of the estate is used for coffee plantations, 30 hectares for a coffee nursery, and around 10 hectares for the coffee processing facilities.
