Sumatra, Gayo Mountain


Product Description

This organic, fair trade Sumatran coffee is grown at an elevation of 2,500 - 5,000 feet in the northern region of Aceh on this Indonesian island and bought from the Rahmat Kinara co-op of smallholder farmers.

The unique process of converting Sumatran coffee cherries from a fruit to a dry green bean produces a low acid coffee with flavors that can vary cup to cup and reflect its lush tropical Indonesian island origins. We compliment these qualities with a roast that is a touch darker than medium, bringing the complexity of this surprising coffee into full focus. The result is an earthy, smoky coffee with a hint of spice and cocoa. 

You can subscribe to this coffee and receive automatic shipments every 1-4 weeks!

  1. They have raised the bar! 5 Star Review

    This Sumatran is AMAZING... it has truly opened my eyes (in more ways than three) to coffees of this region, but more importantly, how BGC roasts and handles their coffees translates into consist high flavor profiles. My saved favorites is expanding as I branch out and try other roasts by BGC! I highly recommend this roast!

  2. THE BEST! 5 Star Review

    I've ordered Sumatra Mandheling several times and it is clearly one of our favorites! I love the low acid, rich, full taste. It is better than the big coffee roasters and coffee shop retailers. Love it so much - going to place another order now!

    The roast and the flavor of the coffee is amazing. Strong taste but not acidic. It's a great cup of coffee.
