Sudan Rume is an exceptionally rare coffee with a beautiful flavor profile. As its name suggests, the varietal was discovered in the country of Sudan near its border with Ethiopia. It's a naturally-occurring varietal from the Bourbon family, bursting with red fruit and floral flavors, but very low-yielding. Due to the tree’s low yield, Sudan Rume has mainly been used for breeding, creating hybrid trees that produce more fruit with some of its prized flavor characteristics. Recently, farms in the specialty coffee world have begun to allot some of their farmland to Sudan Rume trees. As the harvest is incredibly small, this coffee is a classic case of quality over quantity. Our roast of the 2020 harvest was a 2021 Good Food Awards Finalist! In 2012, Café Granja La Esperanza achieved a “Triple Crown,” landing in 2nd, 3rd, and 7th place in the SCAA’s Coffees of the Year competition. We've been proud to partner with a producer who values experimentation with rare and difficult varieties—the results over the years have always been worth it! Key Production Notes from Granja La Esperanza: • Hand-picked at peak ripeness and fermented in-cherry for 48 hours. Then the coffee is moved to solar drying for 28 days. Coffee is left in storage for 3 months to help stabilize it and reduce the astringency of freshness. • Every lot is sampled and cupped by the Quality Control Lab at Granja La Esperanza before being sent to the dry mill.
