Aged Sumatra by La Mill Coffee Review |

  • Aged Sumatra

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2007
Origin: Northern Sumatra, Indonesia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A classic Sumatra balance of sweet fruit and rich earth notes animate aroma and cup. The fruit displays a distinct black-cherry and orange character, particularly in the aroma, though flavor fades rather quickly in the very mildly astringent finish.

Notes: Aged coffees from Indonesia like this Sumatra are usually held in special warehouses in Singapore in humid but well-ventilated conditions for two years or more. Aging typically mutes acidity, increases body, and introduces a mild (as here) to intense musty note. La Mill is a resolutely high-end retail and wholesale roaster located in the Los Angeles area.

Who Should Drink It: Port drinkers or anyone who enjoys roundly sweet, fruity beverages tempered by aromatic wood or earth tones.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
