ORIGIN: Sumatra, Indonesia

This island country is located between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Placed in the bean belt, which lies just south of the equator, with its volcanic soil, height and old growth forests, it is no wonder that Indonesia is among the world’s top 10 coffee producers. Coffee from this country is prized for its unique, unmistakable flavors that are warm, rich and nutty. One thing to note with Sumatran coffee though, is it often looks slightly disheveled. This is because producers use a wet hulled process. Weird yet wonderful is something to keep in mind.

REGION: Aceh Province

The Takengon and Atu Lintang coffee region of Aceh province, lies on the island of Sumatra. Sumatra is the nation’s top coffee producing island. Aceh is in the northern Gayo region, and is largely (92+%) farmed by small land owners that are using traditional and natural methods of farming. Coffee from this region, is unique with its earthy flavors, and thick, creamy texture. A great choice for those who enjoy an uncomplicated coffee.

ProducerJagong Mill  

A family run mill that has full control over the processing and milling from start to final export. This allows the farm to avoid many issues such as difficult supply lines and costly time issues that can lower a coffees quality. Revenue from the mill is used to enhance more sustainable, social and environmental farming methods, such as paying higher wages, and investing in irrigation systems, water reservoirs and terrace upkeep. These beans have also been sourced from surrounding family-owned farms in the same region as well. This producer group is titled Ihtiyeri Keti Ara (IKA), which loosely means “working for sustenance” in the Gayo dialect. Jagong Mill is owned and produced by Mr. Irham Junus, son Andi and daughter Ina. The Junus family has a focus on meticulous ripe cherry selections, which is uncommon. They also have noted that their coffee is washed with a clean water source, since they use the traditional wet hulled process for their beans.

Consistent quality - low acidity

It is difficult for me to write a proper review because I am new to roasting. However, the quality of my coffee is at least as good as a typical quality roaster.

What I can say with confidence is that the quality is consistent from bean to bean and bag to bag. That is really important for a novice roaster. Also, I really enjoy the low levels of acidity. I still have not figured out the right roasting profile to really bring out the earthy tones, but am certainly getting the chocolate and nut flavours.

I will continue to buy this product.

Sumatra coffee

I love Sumatra coffee. I always try different coffees to make life interesting but I always come back to Sumatra. It's not a high pitch screaming knock your socks off brew. Instead it says welcome back. Now sit down, relax and chill with a great earthy cup of brew. I have been introducing friends to fresh roast coffee. Every single time I take over some Sumatra, the first taste reaction is always, OMG that's great coffee. Just try it. You'll see what I mean.
