Sumatra Mandheling Sara Ate Cooperative

Regular price $18.00 Sale


The Sara Ate Cooperative is composed of over 500 members from or near the Takengon municipality of Sumatra in the northern Aceh Province. The coffee is processed by a locally made pulping machine called a luwak that removes the skin from the cherry but leaves most of the mucilage intact, allowing the coffee seed to ferment within the remaining cherry for up to a day.

This process is loosely known as the wet-hull process and it is partly responsible for creating the distinct coffee profile associated with Indonesian coffees that many coffee drinkers have come to adore.

This Sumatran is a butterscotch, cedar, slightly sweet coffee with a deep, earthy tobacco flavor profile that pairs well with milk and sugar or stands alone just fine sipped on black. While we go wild for a clean washed coffee or a funky, flavorful natural process, we always enjoy taking time to sip on a delicious cup of coffee from Sumatra.

Brewing Recommendations:

Highly recommend brewing this coffee in a v60 or an immersion coffee brewer.
