Sumatra - Single Origin Espresso
Redback Coffee's signature Single Origin Espresso for Hong Kong
The Aceh region of Northern Sumatra did not develop a coffee industry until the start of the last century, where smallholder production and expansion into the forest areas quickly grew. In Aceh, coffee is the second most valuable agricultural export earner, where there are an estimated 60,000 smallholder farming families with an average size farm of 1-2hectares. A 2006 UNDP report, suggests that more than 84,000ha’s of coffee is planted throughout the Central Aceh & Highland regions, however as little as 44,000ha’s is in production with the balance requiring either replanting or regeneration.
Roasted weekly here in Hong Kong, we reckon our coffee is tasting best within one month of the roast date, although two months is still good. Refer to the "Roasted On Date" on the bottom of the bag. Therefore we'd suggest you purchase smaller amounts, more regularly. Oh, and don't put your coffee in the freezer...an air-tight container in the cupboard is what you need.
For the best tasting coffee, pick the right roast for your brew method.
