About

Excellent Sumatran coffees truly capture the jungle essence flavor-wise, producing an earthy and sometimes vegetal cup with chocolate undertones and a creamy finish. Our Sumatra Swiss Water Decaf Coffee is a Fair Trade Organic option that uses a completely chemical-free decaffeination method to retain optimal flavor and body.

This organic Sumatra coffee is a shade grown, Fair Trade and an exceptionally flavorful water processed decaf coffee. This Sumatran coffee, in particular, is produced by a small group of Gayonese farmers. Each farmer owns less than one hectare of land and follows strict organic farming methods. These farmers utilize recycled coffee pulp as one of their farms' main sources of fertilizer. Farm animals are also fed with the same tree leaves that are used to shade the budding coffee plants. These methods help to create a synergistic ecosystem where native flora and fauna are able to thrive, and where incredible coffee beans are grown.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Harvest

Sept - May

Export

Jan - Dec
Farmers pick coffee cherries in Sumatra, Indonesia.

Sumatra

Aceh is the westernmost region of the Indonesian island of Sumatra where coffee farms abound. The combination of high elevation and volcanic soil make for coffees that are rich and lower in acidity with notes of nutty dark chocolate. In the Takengon Highlands is a cooperative that honors Sumatran coffee traditions while moving forward with a focus on female empowerment and success.
