Region; North Sumatra

Harimau Tiger is a signature Cafe Imports coffee, capturing the classic characteristics of a Sumatran coffee while also offering a cleaner, sweeter profile and higher cup quality than a standard Mandheling. As with our other signature coffees, Harimau Tiger is sourced based on quality and profile, and carries limited or no traceability.

Sumatran coffees capture the wild jungle essence of this tropical Indonesian island. It is an earthy, deep, complex, full-bodied coffee that exhibits low-acidity smoothness. Naturally prepared gives the beans a special cup. This is one I drink at home and blend with the Costa Rican.

Softer bean, roast to Full City or Vienna. If you like French roast, blend in some French roasted Costa Rica cafe Vida for an excellent tasting coffee.


Sumatra, to the west of Java, is the sixth largest island in the world. Along its southwestern coast, a range of volcanic peaks rise to about 12,000 feet. The mountains slope eastward to a broad plain covered by dense rain forests and some farmland. Much of Sumatra’s eastern coast is swampy. Sumatra experiences a monsoon season, which is a constant seasonal wind, beginning in November and lasting until March, when the rains begin. Some parts of Sumatra can receive as much as 144 inches of rain during this monsoon season and during the year.

The rich volcanic soil and climate make the country ideal for growing many crops, and especially coffee. Farmers and workers on plantations raise their crops for export. Nearly 1,500,000 acres of plantation land produce such major export crops as rubber, tea, sugar, tobacco and coffee.

Sumatra has been known for its coffee since 1696, when the Dutch brought shoots from the Malabar Coast to plant in the fertile lands of their newly acquired Indonesian empire. The country produces unwashed coffees that are unusually heavy bodied and can achieve an intense and exotic flavor; deep cellar-y mustiness characterizes most of Sumatra’s coffee and is thought by a great many to be extremely desirable. Some Sumatran coffees will have a touch of acidity and be very clean, possessing still a deep earthy body.

Sumatra is the most difficult coffee to buy because of the tremendous varieties of shipments. We here at U-Roast-Em spend extra time sessions cupping samples of Sumatra and are extremely proud of our offerings. Our Sumatra is a wonderful coffee! Clean with a deep, earthy body, low acidity, and a smooth, rich, full flavor.
