Organic Fair Trade Sumatra by Stone Creek Coffee Review |
  • Stone Creek Coffee

    Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Organic Fair Trade Sumatra

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: September 2004
Origin: Gayo Mountain growing region, Aceh Province, northern Sumatra Price: NA

Blind Assessment: In the aroma liquored and slightly fermented fruit are accompanied by dark chocolate notes, all of which mask hints of coffee oils going slightly rancid. A heavy body with gritty mouthfeel dominates the cup. Long, rather oily finish. (Lindsey Bolger)

Notes: Certified organically grown and certified Fair Trade, meaning small-holding farmers have been paid a "fair" or economically sustainable price for this coffee. In traditionally processed Sumatras like this one, idiosyncratic fruit removal and drying contribute to a low-toned, earthy/musty cup. Stone Creek Coffee is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail small batch roaster with eight locations in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. Visit or call 877-462-6333 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of high-impact dark roasts.


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.
