About this coffee

Coffee story

Sumatra, perhaps the quintessential Indonesian coffee, doesn't grow on estates or big farms. It comes from the backyards and garden plots of small landholders, who often have only a few trees. Yet, it's the elementary way they process beans by hand, using the semi-washed method, that could be the secret to this coffee's unconstrained flavor and hefty, syrup-like body.

Cherries are pulped on the farm with a hand-cranked mill, and the seeds hand washed in a basket. Collectors purchase and hull the coffee while still moist and dark grayish-green, removing the parchment shells and allowing the beans to sun-dry only briefly before delivering them to the port of Medan. Along the way, they become fully dry in stages — acquiring their characteristic Sumatran earthiness and complexity.

Because each lot might include the beans of 100 different farmers, great Sumatra relies on strong relationships and sharp tasting skills. We sample exhaustively for every lot we select, looking for the most exceptional body and sweet herbal nuances to coax out with our signature Peet's roast. The result is a gutsy, glorious coffee that brews a richly seductive cup.

  • drinking Peet's since 2015

Although a heavy coffee drinker and forced to cut my caffeine intake, decafs do not appeal to me. I have tried quite a few. I have had a subscription to Peets Sumatra Half-Caf for about a year, having tried a number of their other blends and having attempted to mix my own. This coffee is excellent and consistent. Occasionally the beans are a bit oily and need to be aired for a few hours (otherwise they stick in the burr grinder feed), but this had not been a major inconvenience.
