Sumatran coffee is known for its unique flavor profile, low acidity, thick body and spicy flavor. Natural processed coffees from this area are rare, so this is a special one. Price is a bit higher, but worth it.
Expect rich and silky flavors with lots of balanced fruit and spicy cocoa. We roast this coffee to just after first crack to retain all its juicy fruit notes. It is versatile enough to be enjoyed both as a pour-over and as espresso.
This beautiful natural processed coffee is from the renowned Wahana Estate on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia.
Wahana Estate, which was established in 2005, is the only large, private coffee estate of its kind on the island. It is situated between 1,300 to 1,500 metres in the village of Lae Mungkur, in the Sidikalang district of North Sumatra – an area famous for its coffee due to its ideal climatic conditions, including the highest levels of rainfall in the Lake Toba region.
A large part of Wahana Estate is protected and this conservation area includes many native plant and tree varieties along its rivers and valleys. A further 30 hectares of the estate is used as a coffee nursery to raise a wide range of single varietals grown by the estate.
The estate is an important local employer - with between 800 and 1000 workers, whose families have the use of an on-site health clinic. Workers are provided with free housing, electricity, drinking water, healthcare (including free medicine), and kindergarten and nursery for young children.
The Longberry variety is so named due to its appearance, which is long and thin in comparison with other coffee varieties. It is thought to have originated from Ethiopia due to its similarity to Longberry Harrar.
