Sumatran Coffee. I Have Been Getting . . .

exceptional Sumatran from Oren's here in NYC for at least a year. What I hear from others in the know, who run their own establishments, or are very well hooked in to the grapevine of the coffee world, it is indeed a good time for the variants of Sumatran coffee. If you haven't tried Sumatran yet, look out for some. It's great when it's good. There were a couple off years a while back, but good Sumatran is back and a "must buy."

Mmm - Sumatran. In my top 5 along with Kenya AA, Tanzanian Peaberry, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, and Indian Monsoon Malabar

I get it from a local roaster in downtown Pittsburgh - Nicholas Coffee for around $8.20 per pound. They do ship as well, though I'm not sure how expensive that would be.

Everything I've had from this place has been roasted well and the guys that work there are very knowledgeable about the coffees they roast and sell. I would highly recommend them.

  • That's a lot better price than I had. I look them up and see what they say. Thanks.

Re: Sumatran Coffee. I Have Been Getting . . .

My local has been roasting some Sumatran Manheeling lately - what a fine cup of coffee that makes!!
