Indonesia consists of more than 17,000 islands, with Sumatra the second largest island. The islands were formed by volcanic activity and the mineral-rich soil is fortified with volcanic ash and diverse plant life that make Indonesia’s coffees among the some of the most celebrated coffees around the world. The cherries are processed using a semi-washed and sun dried method also know as the “Giling Basah” method. This process results in a reduced acidity and a heavier body.
We roast these Sumatra beans to a medium-dark roast, just past the second crack. Resulting in a smooth, low acidity cup that is full bodied with savory tobacco notes, tangy fruit notes and a sweet lingering finish.
If you love our Indonesia Sumatra we recommend trying out our Union Place Dark Roast House Blend!
