 The Coffees of Indonesia; Sumatra
Sumatra appears lighter to the eye than the actual degree of roast, when compared to other coffees visually.
As you know, larger bean size does not mean a better cup, but in the case of Sumatra, where coffee is so mishandled and poorly sorted, this does ensure that small broken bits, or infirmed beans do not make it into the final sort.
In a Sumatra process, the coffee is pulped out of the skin on the farm, but the mucilage, parchment and silverskin remain on the green seed.

The Korean made Sumatra 2500 is a compact little lever action carbine that I?ve been told is a very powerful hunting airgun.andnbsp; I?ve wanted one of the Korean made repeaters ever since shooting Randy Mitchell?s Career Carbine a couple of times while on a hunting trip.
There had been reports of accuracy problems with the Career and that the rotary magazine of the Sumatra was more reliable digesting a wider range of pellets than the Careers inline magazine, so I decided on the Sumatra.
It was early fall and while most of the leaves were off the trees, there was no snow and the weather was pretty mild.andnbsp; I like the way the gun carried, it is compact and light weight and even though I had not yet mounted a sling, did not feel burdened.
