Sumatra, Tuo Kersik, Honey

Sometimes you can have a coffee both ways. Chocolately, rich, bold flavors are backed by a fascinating array of tropical and dark fruit flavors. There is a hint of the classic cedar and tobacco notes in the cup letting you know you're still drinking a Sumatran coffee, but the elegance of the flavors combined makes this a very special treat.


    The Story

    You might have noticed that we love uniquely processed coffees. However, there's not much you need to know in order to thoroughly enjoy a cup of this rare treat. This particular lot comes from a cooperative called Koperasi ALKO, which has 476 members who cultivate on small family owned plots of land located around Mount Kerinci, the highest volcano in Indonesia. The cooperative works closely with producers to decrease forest encroachment. Their farm management practices create a protective buffer for the Kerinci Seblat national park, which encircles the entire Kerinci valley with unparalleled natural beauty and habitat for the Sumatran Tiger.

    Brewing Method Recommendation: This coffee really does well across most filter brew methods; however, the Hario V60 really makes the tropical fruit-forward, sparkling cup. If you're doing a french press we recommend a slightly longer brew time and/or finer grind.
