Minang is an ethnic group indigenous to the Minangkabau Highlands of West Sumatra. The Minang people are famous nationwide for their cuisine. They have restaurants literally all over the country. They are also famous as traders, dealing primarily in clothing and jewelry. The Minangs are the world’s largest matrilineal society, with a complex social structure based on matrilineal clans. Property, such as land and houses, inherited through female lineage.

The Arabica coffee from Minang is planted by smallholder farmers in the village of Surian, Solok region. The village is located near the twin lakes and on the slopes of Mount Talang, approximately 60 kms inland from the town of Padang, which is the capital of West Sumatra and the gateway to the famous Mentawai Islands. Minang Solok coffee is still grown traditionally by farmers and is organic since they never use fertilizer.

The most unique thing about this coffee is its tantalizing aroma dominated by spices, lemon aftertaste, and a slight of lemongrass. The flavor of Solok coffee differs from other Arabica coffee in Indonesia. Compared to other Sumatra coffee such as Lintong coffee, Aceh coffee, and Mandailing coffees that are quite heavy, Solok coffee has a medium body, full sweetness, and diverse aroma, similar with coffees from Ethiopia and Kenya.
