Starbucks Reserve® Sumatra Wahana Estate
A Sumatra coffee unlike any we’ve ever tasted.
The words we typically use to describe coffees from Sumatra include “earthy,” “full-bodied” and “robust” – characteristic notes of the traditional, semi-washed method that has been used to process coffee here for generations.
But the Wahana Estate is doing things a little differently. By using a fully washed processing method, they’ve coaxed amazing flavors we’ve never tasted in a Sumatran coffee. In the cup, it’s a little brighter than we expected, lighter-bodied too. The taste has the green herbal overtones of tarragon or bell pepper. Delicious!
The Wahana Estate is located on the northern end of Sumatra, high in the mountains by Lake Toba – the world’s largest volcanic crater. The combination of soil, altitude and climate are perfect for great coffee.
