Sumatran coffees capture the wild jungle essence of this tropical Indonesian island. Sumatra is that earthy, deep, complex, full-bodied coffee that exhibits low-acidity smoothness and a touch of forest floor funk. A great Sumatran is creamy, sweet, with a touch of butterscotch, spice, and mustiness.
Sumatran coffee is traditionally one that exhibits cup characters of a heavy body, sweet cedar, bell pepper, distinct herbaceousness, earth, and balsamic vinegar. We have seen some very exciting variety separations from Sumatra that have shown what isolated varieties and processing with intention can do for the cup. In those cases, the “traditional” cup profile is completely turned on its head, and the coffee presents characteristics of intense sweetness, saturated savory fruits, fig, raisin, and panela. Catimor is a common variety found in Sumatra, and removing that from the mix may be a large contributing factor to that extremely different, and better, cup.
Rubicon Roasting is roasting this Sumatra bean to a Full City Roast. Going further than first crack and stopping before second crack brings about these wonderful flavors.
