It is safe to say that many has enjoyed a cup of Indonesian Sumatra without even realizing – whether as a base for their Espresso-based coffees, a cup of pour-over, and many more. Sumatra boasts an earthy flavor that not many other coffee beans possess.
Indonesia’s richness of flavors was showcased this year at the Global Specialty Coffee Expo, featuring not only Sumatra, but also lampung robusta, liberica tungkal jambi, java preanger, java ijen raung, java sindoro, bali kintamani, flores bajawa, Sulawesi toraja arabica, kalosi arabica enrekang, papua wamena, and many more. The flavors of the many different kinds of coffee were highlighted by different processing methods: giling basah, honey, and natural.
The expo was at the Washington State Convention Centre, Seattle this past 19-22 April, 2018, and was a collaboration between the trade and agriculture attaches of the Embassy in DC., the Consulate General of Indonesia at San Francisco, ITPC Los Angeles, and ITPC Chicago. The transaction result was USD 25 million at the expo alone. With the growth of US total coffee import from the world and from Indonesia in 2017, Indonesia hopes to introduce many more variants of premium coffee to the US market.
