Lyle Lovett frequently calls the store from his concert tours to order more Dark Sumatra coffee. “But, Lyle, we just sent you coffee,” I comment. “I had plenty but I gave some away,” he says. So we pack up a few more pounds and ship it off to arrive the next morning wherever in the country he is performing. Several years ago while roasting a batch of Sumatra beans I pushed them a bit more than usual. My normal toasty color had turned very dark brown. A bit over the top but beautiful I thought. Wonder how it will be in the cup? The proof in the roast is the tasting. And, the result was a very distinct rich brew with a hint of smoky flavor. So Dark Sumatra was born. And now Lyle Lovett and hundreds of our customers enjoy it for breakfast and throughout the day. Organic beans from farms surrounding the town of Takengon of the Aceh province on the island of Sumatra are roasted just right to make a satisfying, full-flavored cup! ~Jamie Anderson
