Product Info

Sumatra Aceh Gold coffee beans is an exotic coffee from the Indonesian island of Sumatra. With a deep, full flavour and fruity, chocolate notes, this is a rare coffee and a neat find!

Note: Some reviews haven't been so great on this coffee, which is normal. The processing is very unique with this bean and the subtleties and flavours are more likely to appeal to experienced cuppers than the average drinker.

Aged Sumatra coffee is a conventional Sumatra that has gone through the traditional aging process in which it sits in a climate controlled warehouse for a minimum of 3-5 years. The practice of aging originates from the 19th century, in which coffee from the Far East would ship to Europe in the hulls of sailing vessels. The coffees were exposed to moist, humid, and salty air in these voyages, and would age quickly. The modern aging process was developed to replicate the characteristics that these early coffees obtained naturally. The aging process deepens flavours while also mellowing them, accentuating certain notes over others. The beans look the part, too. They take on a distinct golden brown and weathered look. After opening a new bag of this stuff, expect to be hit with aromas of cocoa, sugar, leather and lots of other stuff.

Cupping Notes

The aroma is earthy with a hint of pipe tobacco and chocolate. In flavour, there is a lot of the same stuff, but a bit of ripe-fruit in the background. The medium acidity is very nice and crisp, especially for a Sumatra and has a very clean aftertaste. The remarkable flavours of this Sumatra coffee, paired with a meticulous aging process, deliver a big, bold cup of coffee that reflects the time and care that have been put into it.

When I first open it, the beans have the beautiful shiny oil although I ordered medium roast! But this is the end of it. I can't describe much the taste other than bitter.
Roast: Medium Roast

BuyCoffeeCanada: Our master roasters use their discretion to make adjustments to roasts based on 40+ years of roasting experience. The Sumatra Aceh Gold requires a darker roast to bring out the same flavours as a "medium" from other origins, which will bring out more oils. Oils are not bad! They're a natural part of the roasting process, and only cause problems when the coffee is not freshly roasted. The "Aceh Gold" is a very unique coffee and not everyone has the pallet for it.

I found this coffee to be over-roasted to the point it was hard to separate the beans from each other. I'm would try this as a medium roast next time.
Roast: Dark Roast
