What Makes Our Black Satin Sumatra A Best-Seller?
If you haven't tried our Black Satin Sumatra yet, you don't know what you're missing. But why is this dark roast such a favorite? Let's find out.
Sumatra is a large island in Indonesia. This Southeast Asian island is known for its rugged and tropical beauty. The active volcanoes make the soil ideal for growing coffee (though living near these volcanoes can obviously be dangerous.) The pure arabica bean coffee plants that grow in Sumatra benefit from the volcanic soil, sunny days, high humidity, and ocean breezes afforded by island life. You can learn more about the island nation of Indonesia and other coffees at our Indonesia Coffee Tour blog.
The growing conditions on Sumatra produce a coffee with a uniquely earthy flavor. These coffees are celebrated for their immense smoothness and full-bodied flavor. You'll find Sumatran coffee has deep notes of dark chocolate, bright notes of floral herbs, juicy notes of stone fruits, and a touch of syrupy sweetness.
Our Sumatra Black Satin is one of the coffees that truly benefits from a dark roast. The smoky aromas and black pepper finish that come from this dark roast add complex layers to this already mysterious bean. If you are an espresso fan, love espresso-based drinks, or simply enjoy a bold coffee, our Sumatra Black Satin is the choice for you.
