Island coffees have an earthy wildness found in no other coffees. Sumatra is part of the Indonesian archipelago, comprising about 17,500 islands and numerous micro-climates. It is a coffee growers paradise, with fertile volcanic soil and very constant temperatures. Sumatran plantations are graced by good soil and abundant rainfall. Sumatran coffees are always distinctive. This one is awesome. We are soooo happy to share this with you! Better, still, this coffee is Organic and Fair Trade. This Fair Trade rating means it is 100% traceable. It is sourced from members under the Fair Trade Certified requirements.
Harvested September through May, this coffee is shade-grown, frequently under tamarind trees. Producers in Gayo are known for their unique pruning method that splays trees into broad, stout umbrella shapes that are very productive.
Sumatra has healthy biodiversity: mammals, birds, primates (including Sumatra Orangutans), flagged species of the Sumatran tiger, and thousands of flora species.
