We've partnered with a new cooperative in Sumatra to bring you all some super rare limited editions. Normally all coffee in Sumatra is processed using their own unique "Wet Hulled" method. After pulping and fermentation, the beans are only partially dried in parchment, before being hulled and left to dry in the sun, very quickly. This imparts the trademark dark blue green color on the green beans, and gives Sumatran coffee it's characteristic earthy, herbal, full bodied taste.
Not all people like this flavor profile however, and lately, coffee farmers in Sumatra (typically younger people) have begun experimenting with different processing methods to find the full potential of their coffee. It has only been in the past couple years that alternative process Sumatrans have been exported, and we're happy to say we've found some good ones to share with you. We're offering both at once so you can choose which better suits your personal tastes, or contrast and compare.
This Fully Washed coffee is for those who like their flavor profile clean. It is reminiscent of a good Central, or South American coffee, with gentle, citric acidity, still a bit of rustic sweetness, like brown sugar, and a super clean and quick finish. It's hard not to like this one, it is easily drinkable, with good body, and just enough liveliness to keep it interesting.
