Our 4th season offering this classic with a twist

A honey process lot with pleasing, soft purple flavors

Back again to continually surprise us is our delicious honey processed Sumatra from the Kerinci Valley of the Western Highlands. As specialty coffee research and innovation has developed, we've realized that process has a majority effect on flavor. It is a variable that producers can manipulate to change the inherent qualities of the land and the cultivar.

Traditional Sumatran coffees get their unique flavor from a process called wet hulling, which is used to combat high humidity in Indonesia. Here our producing partners have applied a popular Central American technique called honey processing to enrich the sweetness and fruit acidity not normally experienced in Sumatran coffees. This process not only enhances the cup quality, but it was so originally thought of by Santiang Exports as a water conservation effort for the forests, volcanoes, mountains, rivers, and wetlands — all of which provide substantial benefit to the agriculture relied on by the community for income. Seven million people and 24.7 million acres of agricultural land rely on the water that is sourced from the mountains.

We are excited to offer this spin on a traditional profile and hope that you are just as pleasantly surprised as we were. We recommend paper filter pour-overs to experience the unique aromatics and soft finish from this Sumatra. Dial-in to ripe blackberries and complex notes of white tea by starting with a 1:16 brew ratio, filters water at 208-210°F, and medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.
