Sumatra

Sumatra
Single Origin

Sumatran coffee has an intense flavor. It’s full-bodied and offers an earthy flavor with hints of tobacco and tropical fruit.

Select Your Roast Level

Sumatra is a land of extremes. Typhoons. Monsoons. Tsunamis. It makes sense that its coffee would be extreme, as well. Coffee from Sumatra is legendary, but it’s not for everyone. Coffee from Sumatra tends to be roasted very dark.  A favorite of coffee shops, it is a bean that packs an intense punch.

Geography

Wild, rugged and majestic.  Indonesia is made up of over 13,000 islands, the largest being Sumatra. With hot, moist climates and heavy rainfall, the vegetation is luxuriant, and much of the eastern half of the island is swampland. The interior is covered largely by impenetrable rain forests. 

Topography

The Bukit Barisan mountains form the backbone of the island and contain several active volcanoes. The northeastern part of Sumatra contains large plains and lowlands with swamps, mangrove forests and complex river systems. The equator crosses the island at its center making the climate tropical, hot, and humid.

Elevation

Coffee is grown in Takengon, Aceh at an altitude between 1000 – 1700 meters above sea level. 

Fun Facts

SHAKE, RATTLE AND ROLL.  Sumatra is one of the most seismically active areas on the planet. It felt the destruction of both the 1883 Krakatoa eruption and the 2004 Christmas Tsunami, which featured waves topping 100 feet.
