AGED SUMATRA

There’s a precious process behind the spicy, woody and cocoa character of Aged Sumatra, and it’s the fruit of the craftsman’s care that began years ago. It begins with Indonesia’s signature giling basah method. The beans are then carefully aged over more than three years – until they deliver an unforgettable cup reflecting nature’s rhythms.

As a Latte Macchiato (40ml Coffee / 110ml Milk) Aged Sumatra develops biscuit buttery cereal notes and makes for a light, sweet and indulgent treat.

DISTINGUISHED QUALITY

This Grand Cru is Q certified: a classification distinguishing it as a speciality-graded coffee, one that demonstrates superior quality from farm to roastery.

THE AGING PROCESS

In a meticulous twist on the Indonesian wet-hulled process, the beans are aged in breathable jute bags over five years, delivering an unforgettable cup.

REFINED BY TIME

The careful ageing of the coffee enhances its elegant woody note. Refined by time, the coffee gains in smoothness and complex spice notes.

RECYCLED ALUMINIUM

One of Nespresso's sustainability achievements is ensuring that at least 80% of the capsule’s aluminium is from a recycled source.

Origin
There’s a precious process behind the spicy, woody and cocoa character of Aged Sumatra, and it’s the fruit of the craftsman’s care that began years ago. It begins with Indonesia’s signature giling basah method. The beans are then carefully aged over more than three years – until they deliver an unforgettable cup reflecting nature’s rhythms.
Roasting
We separate this single-origin coffee into two batches for a split roast. The first split is roasted intensively but for short time, reaching a medium-dark colour. This is done to accentuate the notes created by the ageing process: Woody cedar with a sweet after-taste. The second split is roasted for longer to add intensity and a velvety body to the final cup.

Aged Sumatra is a distinctly woody and spicy coffee with a roasted character.
