Promising Sumatras

Due to Kenneth David’s rugged travel schedule over the past several weeks, the June issue of Coffee Review, which features coffees from Sumatra, is behind schedule.  We expect to post the article and reviews within the week.  Sorry for the delay.

Reports from the Coffee Review lab on the samples we’ve received are very positive.  We’ve received some truly exceptional Sumatras.  It wouldn’t be surprising to see one or more 94-point coffees come off the table.. Luscious and sweet traditional wet-hulled coffees.  Uniquely-sweet and rich.  Some naturally processed coffees and several fully washed.   Definite progress in Sumatra towards developing truly outstanding cup character.
