A Sumatran gem
Backyard Beans Sumatra selection comes from the Koperasi Pedagang Kopi Ketiara co-op. It’s quite the tongue twister, but this is one hard-working group of individuals. Run by a group of women who have been in the business for over two decades, the passion of this co-op creates truly some of the best coffees we’ve sampled. Better yet, the proceeds from this fairly-traded, shade-grown company go towards programs for health, education, and public infrastructure products.
The coffee itself has a medium to dark roast and is astonishingly full-bodied and complex. You’ll find cedar, dark baker’s chocolate, and a thick, syrupy molasses finish that guarantees you’ll brew this one up over and over again. The dark roast ensures there’s just the right amount of caffeine that you can enjoy this one with dinner and not be wired all night long. Backyard Beans Sumatra is a single-origin that you need to try. Thank me later.
