Sumatra Gayo – 1/2 lb
This Sumatra is grown in the Aceh Gayo Highlands at 1400 m asl by the Santiag family.
The mountainous province of Aceh consists of the entire northern tip of Sumatra and guards the entrance to the most important sea-route of Asia: Malacca Strait. Almost all traffic over the sea between West and East passes this sea-lane, and Aceh has been the first land for Arab and Indian merchants for centuries.
The Gayo Highlands consists of the mountainous central part of Aceh, an isolated area that is cut off from the surrounding coastal plains by the rough peaks of Bukit Barisan. The Santiag farm is small and interplanted with neighboring tea, cinnamon, and chili plants. Cultivated, harvested, and naturally processed without the use of chemicals or pesticides, this smooth-tasting coffee produces a clean cup that is smooth and has deep, complex flavor.
Earthy flavor, with defined savory garden tomatoes and mushrooms. Balanced and very unique cup.
