ATLANTA, GA, June 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- J. Martinez & Company Coffee Merchants has noticed an increase in the popularity of Sumatran coffees recently. The gourmet specialty coffee experts believe that the superior flavor profile of these beans has led to them being appreciated throughout the world.

The Indonesian island of Sumatra is an ideal place for growing coffee. It has high altitudes thanks to its Barisan mountain range, rich volcanic soil and plenty of rainfall due to the annual monsoon season. Lower elevations on the island typically will grow Robusta coffee beans while higher elevations will usually grow Arabica beans.

Indonesia has been growing coffee for more than four centuries. In recent years, coffee from Sumatra has been the primary focus of coffee lovers because many of the other islands of Indonesia had to stop growing Arabica coffee trees after a widespread infection of coffee rust.

The best Sumatran coffee is known as Mandheling coffee. This is the coffee that J. Martinez & Company imports for its customers. The company's special blend, called "Pawani Private Reserve," is aged for 18 to 24 months before it is imported to maximize its flavor. This method of aging was perfected by the Dutch centuries ago, and it coaxes an amazing richness from the Sumatran beans.

"Our Mandheling beans brew into a coffee that has the lowest acidity of any coffee that we sell," says John Martinez, Owner of J. Martinez & Company. "The brew has a rich, earthy aroma, strong chocolate notes and a smooth finish."

J. Martinez & Company's aged Sumatra Mandheling coffee is available in pound and half-pound quantities, and it can be decaffeinated at an additional cost. It is only available in dark roast.
