INGREDIENTS: 100% Arabica Coffee Beans
Coffee growing in Sumatra is done mostly in small family backyard plots primarily to supplement family income. Coffees are pooled together by a central collector or exporter in order to create complete lots. The coffees are semiwashed where the coffee is first de-pulped and then allowed to dry. Varying levels of fermentation occur during this time. Because the mucilage is left on the bean the coffee develops its distinct heavy body quality. Drying is very important and many defects can be traced back to improper drying.
Increasing irregularity in climate is making it more and more difficult to consistently source the highest quality coffees from Sumatra. Finding coffees that demonstrate the nuanced earthy character without the defective mold and dirty characteristics is a constant challenge.
This bold and delightfully full flavored coffee is sure to please even the most discerning palates. An unmistakable coffee experience features heavy and dense body, earthy and cedar notes, mixed with sweet tobacco and fine herbal acidity.
