Gourmet Sumatra Coffee Beans – Handpicked
Sumatra is a heavy, bold tasting Indonesian coffee grown and harvested on the fertile mountain slopes of Mount Leuser, one of the highest mountain peaks in Indonesia.
Gourmet Coffee Beans from Sumatra are handpicked and hand-sorted twice in order to ensure only the choicest coffee beans are selected.
While soil, climate and other local factors play a major role in how a coffee may taste and smell, most coffee experts agree that the complex flavor notes that are characteristic of gourmet coffee Sumatra have as much to do with how Sumatra coffee beans are harvested and processed.
Harvesting & Processing Sumatra Coffee Beans
Sumatran coffee farmers have a unique coffee processing system; not quite the dry method and not quite the wet-processed method. Instead, the coffee bean processing falls somewhere in between.
The coffee beans are not dried within the cherry. Instead, the cherry skins and pulp are removed immediately after the coffee cherries are picked. The coffee beans are then left to ferment and partially dry overnight before being rinsed the following day and then dried rather haphazardly before they reach the market.
This unorthodox coffee bean processing and drying method is somewhat in-effectual so residual pulp is left to further ferment on the gourmet coffee Sumatra beans resulting in the complex fruity or chocolaty taste that is so revered by coffee aficionados.
Sumatra Mandheling Coffee
One of the specialty coffees of Indonesia is the gourmet coffee Sumatra Mandheling, grown and harvested from the Balak and Mandheling regions of Sumatra. The Sumatra coffee plantations are specifically located near the Pandang port in west central Sumatra, and are mountain grown at elevations between 2,500 and 5,000 feet above sea level.
