Sumatra Gayo Natural

  • Sumatran coffees are unique, characteristically earthy and punchy. The varieties grown on the island are mostly derivatives of the Timor hybrid, a cross of Robusta and Arabica coffee. These trees are hardy and resistant to a lot of the fungus and insects that plague pure Arabica coffee plants. This is at the expense of an inferior cup quality. But this new breed of coffee is only one-third Timor with a blend of tasty varieties mixed in. The traditional wet-hulled method used to process coffee in Sumatra was eschewed with this coffee, which was dry-processed like the great coffees of Harrar and Yirgacheffe. Drink this like a Sumatra, but expect layers of bright fruits in the aroma. (Photo credit: Hacienda La Minita)
