Speedwell: Sumatra Wahana

Come try our newest coffee. It’s an Indonesian coffee from the Wahana Estate. Sumatra is an island in Indonesia. This particular coffee plantation is new. It’s only been around for eight years. It’s a “natural process” coffee which means after they pick the coffee cherries, they let them ferment in the sun. They rake them every day until the fruit is dry enough that it cracks off.  They separate the dried fruit and beans after that.

When you smell the coffee after it is poured, it has a strong berry aroma.

It tastes sweet, with some light acid and some of that berry finish. We’re trying to get Derek (the roaster) up from Plymouth for an event, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
