Wet-hulled coffees from Sumatra/Indonesia tend to be very earthy with tobacco notes and this is largely because of the way they are processed.

Sold out coffees-When will you be getting coffee X back again?

Why are your beans dry/wrinkly looking? Why are they not oily?

Our beans are not oily. Most high quality beans from reputable roasters will not be roasted dark enough to force the oils from the bean. (Light roasted coffees appear dry/wrinkly.) Our practice is to roast light enough so that the essential oils that contribute to a coffees taste are still inside (in fact preserved much […]
