Description

The Blue Sumatra Coffee owes its name to the unusual blue hue of its raw beans. The beans we offer are from the northern Lake Toba region in Indonesia and are noted for their smooth texture, rich flavour, softness and mild acidity. The strength and endurance of its flavour make it perfect for milky coffee drinks.

Traditional coffee processing in the Sumatra Mandheling style “Giling Basah” (Wet Hulled) involves a semi washed process where the skin and some of the fruit is removed with home made contraptions before initial drying in sacks. Then they remove the remaining fermented fruit through hand washing and spread the beans on the yellow clay ground or on sheets to dry. Then dry again somewhat after mechanically removing the still Wet parchment and another final drying before bagging. Thanks in part to growing in clay type soils (or volcanic depending on where in Central to North West Sumatra it grows), the fermenting fruit in the first drying phase, and the additional drying phase, good Mandheling coffees develop an Earthy smell and faint Earthy taste along with a wonderful deep body sweet balanced acidity and lush fruit notes when processed well.

For the discriminating Coffee Drinker Sumatra Mandheling coffees when done well presents a smooth full body, sweetly balanced acidity, and lush fruity flavour distinct from any other coffee on Earth.

Customer Service as it should be

So I was running low on my favourite Blue Sumatra Fair Trade coffee and I was in town, so popped along to the HoC to get some more, when horrors, they were out and next roasting expected towards the end of the week... No problem though, there were some beans still in the storage tin - you can have these ground to help you along - I know how much you love this coffee and what's more, there was no charge. Excellent service as it should be - thank you so much.

Delicious coffee

Tried this when visiting son in LB and had to get some delivered to Cornwall. Very good especially for milk based coffee drinks as it has a bit of acidity to cut through the sweetness of the milk.
