Like the volcanoes of Sumatra, this coffee is steeped with geothermal energy that has traveled up from the center of the earth. Grown on the slopes of a volcano near the port of Padang, Indonesia, this coffee’s origin is said to be home to one of the most ancient and bio-rich ecosystems on the planet. The richness of the lower octave volcanic soil emanates from the beans offering it earthy, rich, and spicy flavor notes. Like the Miles Davis Quintet album of the same name, Steamin' is uniquely indelible with modal tones and depth that will make it an instant favorite at first sip.
