We would like to introduce to you Ric Harinyato and his family's amazing coffee. Ric believes his coffee is very good and we agree...in fact, we think his coffee is the best cup of Sumatra we've ever had. Not only that, Ric is changing how we as consumers can access his family's wonderful beans. Producers in Sumatra have always been "represented" by exporters that combine the good with the mediocre during the milling process. This method doesn't work for Ric. He would rather do the leg-work and bring you the quality of his family's crop the way it deserves. Still rich and full bodied, this cup separates itself from other Sumatran coffees in its remarkably clean and limeade flavor.
