A very fresh classic Sumatra with nice prep.
This cup is sourced from family owned farms organized around the UtamaGro cooperative, located in the Takengon highlands of the Aceh province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. UtamaGro cooperative currently has 1174 members. On average, producers cultivate coffee on 2.5 acres of land using their own micro-mills to depulp and dry coffee. The cooperative hosts regular training on best agricultural practices to assist small producers with their organic certification while improving the quality of their coffee.
Tasting Notes: Full bodied, darker toned, low acidity with earthy, chocolaty and smoky tones. Medium roasts are very smooth and creamy with just a hint of a sweet edge balanced with the classic herbal spice and peat like savoriness. Darker roasts get very hefty and semi-sweet with strong smoky and bakers chocolate.
Roasting Notes: Medium to dark roast coffee, light roasts will be pretty underdeveloped and a little grassy but it blooms into an awesome cup starting about halfway between first and second crack. Will roast a bit uneven, make sure everything gets through first crack. Low chaff.
