GEOGRAPHY: SUMATRA

The distinct flavors of aged Sumatra beans have long been a cornerstone of our coffee passion. And the process that produces this one-of-a-kind cup is an investment in every sense of the word. We begin by harvesting ripe Sumatran coffee cherries, and then we embark on a years-long journey. We keep the coffee in a special facility where warm, tropical air circulates among the burlap bags. We rotate and sample the coffee every six months, knowing that only patience and care, time and the elements can create the flavor you’re about to experience. Each lot waits years before reaching its peak. And now, finally, the wait is over. Coffee aficionados, rejoice.
