rose bros coffee

Sumatra, Very Dark Roast, 1 lb


The Indonesian Island of Sumatra is mountainous with rich soil. Ideal for growing coffee at altitudes of 750 – 1,500m.

The coffee in this bag consists of Arabica beans form the typica and bourbon varietals and is named Sumatra Mandheling after the ethnic group residing in the Batak Region of West-Central Sumatra from which these beans are cultivated.

The milling process, Giling Basah, is unique to Sumatran coffees and involves hulling the parchment off the bean at roughly 50% moisture content as opposed to the more typical 10 – 12%. Giling Basah gives Sumatran coffee its trademark flavour of low acidity, earthiness and a rich body. Flavour notes include dark chocolate, earthy tobacco and red cherry.

rose bros coffee provides premium fair trade/organic coffee that is roasted on the slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and sourced from regions around the world.

James and Trevor Rose started roasting in the Winter of 2016 with a 90’s era popcorn popper and a dream.

And because we are passionate about the environment, for every pound of rose bros coffee purchased, we plant one tree through our partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation.
