On the highlands of Aceh, in Sumatra the Dutch brought coffee tree stock from Yirgacheffe in the 17th century. Aceh is known for its award winning Mandheling, producing a larger bean size, and coffee grown at the highest altitude in Sumatra. Antigua Sumatra, an Urth exclusive, comes a variety of preparations – aged lots, triple sorted lots – all carefully selected and combined for uniqueness and complexity. Sumatra is a rare coffee that can be perfected through an aging process. This coffee is known for its’ low acidity, full body, earthy taste with hints of clove, hazelnut, and a dry cherry-like sweetness. Our Antigua Sumatra makes a stunning espresso with reddish brown crema that lasts and lasts.
