Introducing our special reserve Aged Sumatra Blue Batak!
For a limited time only we are excited to feature this exceptional, rare and exotic coffee.
Historically aging coffee was a normal part of the journey from seed to cup. In the Sixteenth century, coffee destined for European coffee houses from the Yemen port of Mocha embarked on a long journey around the Southern tip of Africa. During this journey the extended exposure to wood, humidity and salt air would imbue a distinct character in the coffee which was considered a desirable and sought after attribute. In recent years, the allure of aged coffees has begun to reemerge and intentionally aging coffee in order to replicate this old world flavor is an exciting art and science.
Aging green (unroasted) coffee with excellent results requires a great deal of knowledge, patience and of course great coffee.
Our Sumatra Aged Blue Batak, started its journey as the finest semi washed processed Catimor & Typica hybrid. Then stored and monitored in humidity controlled curing rooms for 3 years. Leading to a luxurious and exotic cup, full of depth and nuance not found in any other coffee.
Flavor & Aroma:
A deep and rich dark sugar sweetness surround a drying green apple-like acidity with notes of balsam fir, fresh cut cedar, licorice and pipe tobacco. Hints of earth, peat and black pepper carry long into a sharply flavor laden finish.
Aged Sumatra is the quintessential romance coffee, exotic and alluring - evoking fanciful day dreams of adventures in far away lands. The perfect compliment to a cold winter day nestled beside the fire with a great book!
