Sumatran Ulos Batak

The roaster's pick for August.

Most Sumatran coffees are washed before being dried but these undergo a natural process. That means picked beans are laid in the sun to dry naturally over several days, no washing is done. It’s the oldest method of processing coffee and some feel it delivers bigger flavors.

“Natural process gives this coffee distinct flavors of strawberry jam and toasted bread.” Allen Leibowitz, founder and roaster of Zingerman’s Coffee Company explains. “It’s pretty rare to find natural process Sumatran coffees and the flavor is like nothing we’ve ever tasted coming out of that region."

Using a dark roast to bring out the big flavors of this beauty, Allen has created a coffee that works well as a morning drip coffee, but I think really shines in a French press pot. Grind the beans more coarsely and enjoy the thick, mouth-filling texture.

Roast: Dark.
Body: Wild.
Tasting Notes: Very bright with notes of grapefruit, slightly nutty. Smooth.
Facts: Roasted fresh by Zingerman’s Coffee Company. Shipped whole bean.
