Roaster Tasting Notes:
From the Gayo Mountain Coffee mill in the Aceh region of Sumatra, where 90% of the country’s organic coffee is produced, our Sumatra is our top selling Full City coffee. Gayo Mountain was built by Dutch Aid over 20 years ago, and has processing capabilities for washed, pulped natural, and natural coffees. In response to political and social unrest in the region, Gayo Mountain does its best to maintain a stable, safe working environment for its employees, with low turnover rates, increasing salaries, and on-site schools, playgrounds, and medical facilities.
The Sumatra “Gayo” is marked by the region’s characteristic low acidity with a heavy body, and sweet citrus flavor. The slightly darker Vienna roast level brings out additional sweetness in this coffee, and imparts a fuller, darker flavor.
