Sumatra is a tropical island situated in Western Indonesia and right next door to Malaysia. This island is a whopper; in fact it’s actually the sixth largest island in the world. Thanks to its tropical climate, Sumatra has been a haven for coffee crops since the Dutch imported, planted and started production in the mid 1870s.
Our world is changing and more people than ever are interested in where their coffee actually comes from and the impact it has on people and the environment. This is an important awakening because it will ultimately enhance living and working conditions for third world producers and higher quality coffee for consumers. And to be honest, this is why we go to so much effort to let our customers know where and how we source our coffee because the story behind the bean matters.
