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.

And it's precisely the depth and complexity of Sumatra's flavors that give it the integrity to withstand decaffeination better than any other coffee, allowing us to use the very same beans for both versions.

Decaf Sumatra is as complexly sweet and nuanced as the original — with all the characteristic herbal, nutty, earthy nuances. Most people would never guess it's decaffeinated. Whether or not you can tell, we think you'll find it equally satisfying. Try it as espresso at one of our stores.

My second favorite decaf from Peet's. Has a distinct flavor and lots of oomph. Great in the morning but works well for after dinner, too.

This is an excellent decaf coffee with a complex taste. I wouldn't know it is decaf unless I was told. Get a press pot and you will appreciate all this has to offer after just one cup.

I tried several varieties of Peet's coffee and Sumatra was my clear favorite. When I mixed up my bag of decaf and regular and struggled to tell them apart I decided it was time to go without the caffeine. My next order is all decaf. Thanks Peet''s for great coffee!

Decaf Sumatra is the decaf for people who don't like decaf - it's so full-bodied and rich that you'll never know anything is missing (except for the post-caffeine crash). Decaf Sumatra has a deep, loamy aroma and a smooth, yet strong flavor with a hint of nuttiness about it. It has so much body that a large cup feels like a satisfying meal.
