Sumatra is one of many growing regions within the Indonesian islands, where the elevation and mineral-rich volcanic soil make for excellent coffee growing conditions. The region is known for a typically earthy cup, due to the traditional Giling Basah (or Semi-Washed) processing method, where green coffee is laid out on natural, clay patios that impart the earthy, sometimes herbal quality
This coffee was decaffeinated using Methylene Chloride (or dichloromethane) a naturally occurring colorless, non-harmful, chemical solvent which extracts caffeine through a distinctively gentle process, known for its exceptional preservation of flavor, profile and aroma. FDA-approved and perfectly safe, virtually all traces of M/C are removed long before the coffee is roasted.
Cup profile: good body, smooth, low acidity with a slight earthiness - medium roast
