About the Coffee
Over the years we've had many different lots of Sumatran coffee, and we always do our best to keep them in line with a similar cup profile. Classic earthy, tea-like, and sweet green apple notes are what we are looking for, and this fresh arrival from the Permata Gayo Cooperative fits the bill! The co-op resides in the Gayo Highlands in the province of Aceh – a very remote part of the central island on the northern tip of the country. This co-op was formed in 2006 by 50 farmers in five different villages of the Bener Meriah region that came together after a powerful tsunami hit the region and devastated several of their coffee farms. The co-op started very small and is now currently composed of over 2,000 producers! This coffee is processed while still wet, giving the beans their signature blue-ish look. Removing the parchment while still wet helps the beans dry faster for export in the warm, wet climate of Sumatra.  As always, we'll be offering a dark and medium roast version of this coffee.
