Sumatra's quality is better than ever. This particular lot comes from the Asman Gayo Mill: Asman's lot of coffees are grown on volcanic loam similar to that of Kenyan coffees. Expect big "Kenyan-style" fruit, winey acidity, and a fruity cotton-candy sweetness.
This coffee comes from a small mill in the Pegasing district of Takengon, in Sumatra's coffee-famous Aceh region ran by Cup of Excellence winner Asman Arianto. The Asman Gayo mill serves several small coffee producers within the Pantan Musara villages. Several years ago, these producers were dislocated from their homes and land because of a natural disaster, and they have rebuilt their lives and farms with a new focus on coffee. Unlike the vast majority of other Sumatran coffee receiving and processing centers, this mill is producing Washed coffees, as well as Naturals.
