Deeply toned and mellow – like the thrum of the wind in the giant bamboo of Sumatra's highlands. This coffee’s fragrance offers notes of clove and cardamom. In the cup it expresses cedar and port wine, earth and moss. We savor its syrupy body, and its smoke and caramel finish.
"In the aroma an intense wood smoke character with hints of cedar and a vague fruitiness. Soft and simple in the cup with sweet notes of charred wood, leather and a hint of earth. The finish is round and dry; a slight astringency diminishes and allows sweetness to prevail in the long."— Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview.com, August 2009
A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important.
That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world.
Beans from Sumatra have always been highly prized not only because of their full flavor, but also because of their distinct appearance. Sumatran coffee beans, when green, are often asymmetrical in shape and have a deep aquamarine tint. Beginning in the 18th Century when the popularity of Sumatran coffee rose significantly, the unique shape and hue helped European merchants recognize authentic Sumatran coffee beans.
However, Sumatran coffee’s distinct appearance isn’t the only factor contributing to the coffee’s uniqueness. The unusual drying techniques employed by Sumatran coffee farmers also contribute to the coffee’s distinctiveness. These techniques involve an extended period of the coffee bean’s exposure to the pulp of the berry after the berry has been harvested—a process which is believed to produce deeper tones in the brewed coffee.
While much of Sumatra's coffee is grown today in the region of mighty Lake Toba – a huge volcanic crater lake in the center of the island – the majority of our coffee comes from a number of different fair trade co-ops around Lake Tawar in the northern reaches of Aceh province, the same land where coffee was first introduced here by colonists in the 18th century.
One of our suppliers, the Gayo Organic Farmers Association, has started a project to bring safe drinking water to more than 1,500 people. The cooperative has also saved funds to help farmers with the reconstruction of their homes, many of which were destroyed in the war, and to aid in the construction of two new schools. This coffee has truly delightful qualities in its origin as well as in the cup.

About Me I just know what I like
When friends make a point to ask about the specific type of coffee so they can buy it you know it's good, even friends that normally do not enjoy coffee very much. (until they found this one)This one has an all around flavor and body about it. I have tried to find another that would mimic this Sumatra but they have all failed so far..., and failed by a wide margin.Exceptional, all the way around, truly.

I have tasted the best of the best and the worst of the worst of coffee. I would say this coffee falls in the top 25% as far as its character and taste. The fact that it is organic and fair trade certified is great! I found it deep dark and satisfying, with a caramel taste and full body feel in the mouth. Jump right in the coffee is fine!!
from Seymour, CT
I had been meaning to order a bag of Green Mountain Single Origin when I saw it in one of my local supermarkets. I was surprised since most supermarkets only carry a couply varieties. I decided that I wanted the darkest roast which was Sumatran Lake Tarwar. [...] I really enjoy this coffee which has a good bite (not in a bad way) and will surely be going back to my local market when I run out. Very good single origin. Green Mountain comes through yet again.
This is the One!
from Grapevine, TX
My kind of coffee! Full body. Rich flavor. Perfect deep roast, but not over-roasted. A satisfying, comforting morning beverage!
