Description: Sumatra coffees are known for their processing method. Rather than washed or natural, these beans go through a semi-washed, or wet-hulled process that is a combination of the prior two. After the coffee has been picked, it is pulped through a hand-cranked drum that removes almost all of the fruit and mucilage from the bean. After fermentation, the rest of the pulp is washed from the beans.

Good stuff!

We wait for this coffee every year and buy a bunch when it comes out. It is my wife’s favorite coffee!

Great coffee!

I love this coffee.
I roast this to middle of 2nd crack.
It gives earthy and good body with brown sugar aroma.
This is one of best selling items at my place!

Surprisingly Great Coffee!

I carry many coffees both roasted and green for roasting in my 1 lb roaster. Normally I stick w/ high mountain Ethiopian (Harrar/Yirgachef) coffees, Tanzanian or Kenyan coffees too. But I do drink a lot of Kona, Central American and Jamaican coffee. Love Floral and Fruity coffees more than some of the more earthy/musty Pacific coffees like this from Sumatra usually are.

But this time I thought I'd try roasting this Sumatra Peaberry. Turn out to be Fantastic... coffee taken to just as 2nd crack begins. It's clean well-sorted w/ just a few quakers/defects found. It has a Full body, excellent aroma while grinding and brewing. Love the extra taste that this Peaberry coffee brings out in pour over brewer or siphon coffee maker. I have a Tanzinian Specialty Grade Peaberry Coffee I rate as my best right now (including Guatamala Gesha, Jamaican Blue Mountain, Kona Specialty beans, Costa Rican Specialty Honey process!

This coffee home roasted, ground & brewed is on par w/ all except maybe my specialty Tanzinian Peaberry & Gesha I can't buy anymore! ....makes great Cold Brew w/ brewed for 12 or more hours in fridge! Great as a Nitro Brew w/ 'NO' gas too! . .

Small bean hard roast great taste!

Had a bummer of a roast where the beans didn't crack uniformly. Sounded like only 15% of them cracked. Beans are peaberry and small so few got stuck in the Behmor AB drum mesh. All in all I took it to slight med roast and ended up tasting very, very good! Second time roasting 1st crack was drawn out sporadic but much better. Very tasty cup.

Rolls Royce of Sumatras

Not usually a big fan of Sumatras but saved 4 cups of this post-roast and fully appreciated that this wasn’t hype; as the saying goes: “try it, you’ll like it”!
If one respects nothing then one must respect the labor that goes into the process of hand separation of Peaberries

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
