Sumatra Irham Junus: Tastes like Chicory and Licorice
FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS
The notoriety of Sumatran coffees precedes itself, and this offering is an exceptional example of the incredible variety of flavors from the region. This is a classic “Wet Hulled” coffee, which the Indonesians call Giling Basah. It has both the rich earthiness you'd expect from Sumatra, but follows it with a complex body and sweetness that we can’t describe any other way than “exciting.” We are thankful to the Junus family for cultivating this rich and complex coffee..

We serve this coffee as both espresso and drip in our shops. We use 20g ground espresso to produce 40g brewed espresso in 28 to 30 seconds. If you don't have a scale and the espresso is between 7 and 14 days old, just aim for a volume a little over 2.0 ounces for a double. Please note this coffee is delicious as straight espresso but can get lost in milk; if you prefer a stronger espresso for milk drinks we recommend using the Blendo Stupendo. Of course, feel free to experiment with the parameters to find your perfect coffee. If our parameters make the espresso tastes sour or bitter to you, just increase your brewed amount a few grams up if it's sour or a few grams down if it's bitter. For our drip coffee, the parameters vary a little because we use a refractometer to control strength at 1.35% TDS, but if you don't have a refractometer just use about 15 grams of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.
