This Sumatran coffee is as rich in flavor as it is in history. Amazingly, this coffee was once thought to be lost to the world; it took over 100 years for this prized cultivar to be rediscovered, because it was hidden amongst the lush jungles of Sumatra. Since then, these ancient Arabica trees have been replanted near Lake Takengon in West Sumatra, which is now world-famous for its production of gourmet coffee.
Sumatra "Black Satin" coffee is darkly roasted to produce a full and heavily bodied cup with mild, earthy undertones. Low in acidity and smooth, this dark roast coffee has a smoky aroma and a slight black pepper finish.
