A unique traditional Sumatran process – Giling Basah, gives the coffee a great body and flavour, garnished with herbal nuances and a spicy finish.

The process involves hulling the parchment off the bean at about 50% moisture content, whereas most of other processes hull coffee at around 10-12% moisture content.

Cupping notes: Strong notes of cedar, sweet tobacco, chocolate and spices; winey acidity, consistent and balanced.

    Excellent coffee service. As always, excellent service. The Sumatra coffee is smooth, rich and very non-acidic for those who, like me, sometimes find South American African coffee a little too bitter. Once again, worth mentioning that the decaf is superb.

    Wander through the woods with this great coffee. I sampled this coffee when I visited the excellent coffee lounge at Dava last month and loved it so much I bought a bag to take away. It’s a no-nonsense, full flavoured, bass noted, beautiful beast of a coffee. It reminds me of that feeling of walking through a wood after heavy rain, when the sun comes out and you get that great earthy forest scent. It’s very different to the other coffees I have but it’s deep, rich, and full of character- when you want a Barry White of a coffee, this is the one you should reach for!

    We love this coffee! Great depth and strength for the perfect flat white ?
