Sumatran Coffee Beans

Sumatran coffee beans are some of the heaviest, smoothest, and most complex coffees in the world.  Most of the coffees from Sumatra are dry-processed, but some are semi-washed.  The majority of Sumatran coffee is marked Mandheling or Lintong and is grown inland from the southern coast.  Sumatra coffee grown farther west is usually marked Gayo Mountain. Sumatra Gayo coffee is described as sweet and clean.

Coffee connoisseurs who want to buy Sumatran coffee typically look for aged Sumatran green coffee beans. These coffee beans enhance the earthy and spicy notes of regular Sumatran coffee, making it one of the most sought after coffees available.
