     Indonesian coffees are an acquired taste. Some of our customers love them immediately, for others they are simply too much. Sumatrans have unique flavor profile. Dark, rich, chocolatey  ( well just like some Central American coffees- nothing new there) but then they hit you with spices and tobacco notes.  Atu Lintang  has pronounced notes of smokey bitter marmalade sweet tobacco and red pepper jam all crammed in with dark rich heavy body.

    Sumatran coffees are mainly produced by unique semi-washed process (wet hulled) and is localy known as Giling Basah. In this process coffee  is picked, machine pulped ( on the farms ) and then partly sun dried. The parchment is then removed revealing a whitish colored, swollen green bean with water content around 35%. The drying is then completed where seed quickly turn to dark green color unique to Sumatra.
