About this coffee

Coffee story

It comes to us from the Indo Pacific, but Aged Sumatra is really a gift from the Dutch. The unique and complex flavor of this rich coffee owes its origin to long journeys across the trade routes, when the beans were transported with spices in wooden-hulled ships. Mr. Peet, also of Dutch origin, was instrumental in spreading the wealth of this "spice box of flavors" here.


He knew how hard it is to find really good aged coffees. Most exporters aren't willing to endure the lengthy aging process before selling their beans. And not all of those who do it start out with beans good enough to become aged coffee for Peet's customers. The aging process deepens flavors while also mellowing them, accentuating certain notes over others — but it doesn't add flavor to mediocre beans.


Even when you start with the right coffee, you also need the right climate. Aging has to take place in a tropical environment where the beans can absorb moisture during the monsoon season, and release some of it during the drier months, without ever being allowed to dry out completely. That's how the coffee develops its concentrated body and distinctly nuanced aroma.

This is a fantastic coffee. It remains one of the two Asia rim coffees I drink on regular basis. It is fantastic when pairing it with a meal or drinking it alone in the afternoon. I prefer dark roast and AS remains strong without bitterness to the taste. I highly recommend.

After many years of trying just about all of them, this is probably our favorite. Nicely aromatic with a smoky-woodsy feel, rich yet still very smooth. It does not have the caffeine kick you get with some other brands.

Been drinking Peet’s since I lived in Berkley in 1970, moved to L.A. and every other month or so I had to drive up to get a stash of Peet’s to last me. Once they went mail order it became monthly and easier. I Moved to New York and continued with Peet’s as there is no other coffee like it anywhere. Now in South Florida, I continue my 2lbs of Aged Sumatra monthly with a mixed flavor every so often. In my son’s school (FAU university Boca) they have a Peet’s coffee stand, it makes my trips there happier! There is nothing as satisfying as a cup of Peet’s coffee anywhere!

I'm struggling with the rating for Peets Aged Sumatra. I read the reviews and purchased it based on those and reviews of other roaster's Sumatra coffee's. I am a long time user of Chemex Coffeemakers (over 30 years). I can't get this coffee to the point that I like it (e.g. vs Major Dickason) in the Chemex. I've tried changing concentration (15x to 17x), water temp (195 to 204), pouring technique, stir no stir, etc. The coffee taste "flat" chalky, burnt notes, etc. None of the nuance that I expected. I've moved the coffee to my office where I use a French Press, while it is better it's still not what I expected.
