Similar to a big, jammy Petite Sirah red wine, our Sumatra Suku Batak offers an individual character in the cup, unlike no other origin. It is heavy bodied with mellow acidity, offering flavors of cedar, fresh earth, leather, and herbal nuance. The dark roast lends some sweet, syrupy caramelization to the finish.

Certified Organic Traditional Blend
Crafted in the Roma espresso-style, Alpen’s traditional Italian Roast blend provides a cup that is bold and syrupy-sweet, with toasty notes of praline, fresh leather, and nuanced dried fruit. The acidity is excellent and bright, lingering cleanly on the finish.

Our Story Being trained and learning the craft as a classic second wave coffee roaster, our Master Roaster, Christian Waskiewicz loves tradition. That tradition and his European upbringing and life experiences is due cause to represent the “classics” of European roasting styles in a domestic interpretation. To round out the triad of Euro-Classics, which include Vienna and French, Alpen Sierra’s Italian Roast is specifically, but not solely, blended for espresso brewing. The resulting cup character should be bold, bright, rich and sweet. Saluti!
