Sourcing good, consistent supply of Sumatran coffee remains challenging - it's been the same for the last 5 years and each year it seems to get worse as demand exceeds supply.
It's now one of the most expensive origins across the world - rivalled only by Kenya and some Ethiopians and high-grade Costa Ricans.
Supply has dropped by literally 40% from the peaks in 2013 and many of the leading coffee brokers are bypassing Sumatra entirely.
In 2019 we are paying more for Sumatrans than we have done in the last 12 years, despite historic lows of the C-Index.
Sumatran coffees are powerful and complex.
We won't cut corners by sourcing lower priced options as there are far higher risks with the unique processing methods used for Sumatran coffees - no other origin around the world uses the Sumatran wet-hulled process.
This process is prone to higher levels of tain, ferment and defects, hence why we will never take the risks.
A rewarding cup of intense flavour with a long, sweet, spicy finish.
This is an intense coffee - to be savoured and enjoyed like the finest Sumatran coffees.
Sumatran coffees are expenside - full stop. The supply is ridiculously small/difficult and the prices paid are literally double the market, so before you think of complaining about the price, take a moment to realize this is a high cost product.
Whether you want black or with milk - this coffee will not disappoint.
