We are on the brink of February, and we have a great new Indonesian coffee to share with you: Aged Sumatra! The Aged Sumatra lot we offered back in 2019 was a huge success…and we can NOT wait for you to try this one! ?
Like certain wines are considered by connoisseurs to improve with careful aging, a few coffee regions (most notably, Sumatra) can benefit from the careful attentions of an expert to bring out the muted tones and wonderful nuances with this unique method. Care and attention is given to the entire process of pulping, fermentation, hulling, drying, and storage, including moving the coffee back up the mountain, from the mill in Medan to the warehouse in Aceh where temperature, humidity, and airflow can all be controlled more effectively. For the next 3-5 years the stored coffee is rotated every 2-3 months to provide more even distribution and airflow. Samples are taken and cupped at regular intervals to determine when it’s ready, and has achieved the perfect aged cupping profile. This coffee boasts a silky and heavy body, mild acidity, with notes of nutty, oak, sweet, toasted sesame, and tobacco.
