From Sumatra With Love

Sumatran coffee cherries and coffee trees

On our continuing quest to find and hunt down fantastic and rare coffees we have truly found several gems from Sumatra. Our newest member of our Sumatran coffee family of coffees will be called Sumatra Lintong Triple Pick Tiger. This coffee is grown south of Lake Toba in the village of Saran Padang. There are 120 small holder farmers averaging 1-2 acres per farm at an altitude of 1100-1200 meters. The coffee has creamy, syrupy body, with slight earth, chocolate and orange citrus overtones.

Giving Back

Vournas Coffee Trading will donate a portion of our profits from the sales of our Sumatra Lintong Triple Pick Tiger to the World Wildlife Fund. This donation will go to help the endangered Sumatran Tiger, in which there are only 500 to 600 remaining in the wild. The Vournas logo is of course an emblazoned Sumatran Tiger, as we have always admired this animal’s stealth and natural beauty.

Sumatra Microlots

We are also bringing in a few Sumatran coffee microlots which blew us away on the cupping table. Yes they are expensive, but once you taste them you will see why. See all the information below and make sure and book out before they are sold.

Sumatra Wahana Longberry

Our Sumatra Wahana “Longberry” variety is said to be named after its appearance—relatively long and thin in comparison with other arabica coffee varieties. It was thought to have originated in Ethiopia because its shape and cup profile is similar to the Ethiopia Longberry Harrar.

Cup Profile:

Aroma: Clean, Spicy, Raisin, Floral
Flavor: Sweet, Fennel, Orange, Caramel
After Taste: Silky with a Cocoa finish
Acidity: Lower and Sweet
Body: Buttery and Intense
Overall: Low Acidity, Silky Body, Floral Aroma with Chocolate finish


Sumatra Rasuna Honey

Typically the Rasuna variety has high acidic character. With careful processing (dry conditions) and timing our Sumatra Rasuna Honey is a magnificent example of Sumatran coffee with more balance and an increased level of sweetness..

After Taste: Sweet and Round
Acidity: Clear and Sweet
Body: Syrupy

Sumatra Rasuna Natural

Typically in Northern Sumatra the drying process is difficult during the raining season. With extensive research and development, machinery was developed specifically to aid in this process and resulted in a natural process Sumatran coffee that is unlike any other.

Cup Profile:

Aroma: Melon, Passion Fruit, Winery
Flavor: Herbal, Melony, Chocolaty, Winey
After Taste: Long and Round

Body: Full
