This coffee is a FAIR TRADE, RAIN FOREST ALLIANCE, CERTIFIED ORGANIC aged in a rum barrel to a perfect balance of flavor.
We have built a relationship with a local craft distillery and acquire their used rum barrels for the aging process. The green coffee we use is from the Permata Gayo Cooperative in Sumatra, Indonesia. This organic variety has a very nice clean delivery with a slight earthy tone. On its own this Sumatran has a well balanced flavor, smooth medium body and a sweet winey acidity with plums. But with the added aging in the rum barrel it has picked up slight apple-wood aroma and a sweet raw sugar rum note.
