Sumatra And Popper

Sumatra from Aceh area isnโ€™t that low grown generally (1250 to 1800 meters) but can be tough to roast. It often gets a heavy, dark roast treatment that obscures the coffee to a point. Lighter roasting is more challenging.

Air roasters do a pretty good job with this. Itโ€™s hard to scorch coffee in an air roaster … provided you donโ€™t overload it.

Currently we use a 3 barrel Probat for samples but when I have a single sample to check out, Iโ€™m using Popper lately.

Here is a 1450 meter Sumatra from Aceh (near Lake Takengon) roasted for cupping in Popper.

Lighter City roast from the popper for cupping and drinking!
