Sumatra Coffee Beans
Sumatra is a large island in Indonesia that is known for producing some of the world’s most unique and complex coffee. Sumatran coffee is grown in the highland regions of the island, which have a cool and wet climate that is ideal for coffee cultivation. Here are some key features of Sumatran coffee:
- Flavour profile: Sumatran coffee is renowned for its rich, full-bodied flavour with low acidity. The flavour profile is often described as earthy, woody, and spicy, with notes of chocolate, tobacco, and sometimes even hints of fruit.
- Processing method: Sumatran coffee is typically processed using the wet-hulled method, which involves removing the parchment layer from the coffee bean while it is still wet. This results in a unique flavour profile that is different from other coffee beans processed with more traditional methods.
Roasting and Brewing
- Roasting method: Sumatran coffee is roasted darker to accentuate its bold flavour profile. However, lighter roasts can also bring out the coffee’s subtle fruit notes.
- Recommended brewing method: Best brewed using espresso or French press methods, as these methods can balance the strong flavour profile and heavy body.
Once the coffee is roasted it will be left to rest (degassing), this could be a few days or a week until we sample and make sure its fully ready to be brewed in your kitchen.
