Old Sumatran


Our Old Sumatran coffee is very much a product of its unique growing region. It has the rich body and mild acidity prized in an Indonesian coffee, created by the tradition production method of warehousing the coffee for a period in Indonesia’s warm, damp climate. This is a traditional ageing process slowly lessens the coffee's natural acidity for a more gentle flavour, unmatched by modern technology. These semi-washed Lington 1 beans are from the Sari Makmur Co-operative, a small union of smallholdings that surrounds the town of Takengon in Sumatra. Takengong sits in the highlands of western Sumatra, approximately 1350 to 1700 m.a.s.l., on the shores of Lake Lut Tawar. Coffee is planted alongside pulses, chillis and vegetables in the rich and fertile volcanic soils of this area, which lend it an unmistakable spicy aroma. We Fully City Roast (Strong) this coffee to strengthen its rich body and slightly mute its berry sweetness. The resulting overall flavour is deep, strong and buttery with a spicy aroma and long lasting finish, something like unsweetened cocoa. Delicious after dinner drinking.
