Sumatra Typica Heirloom

Our Crop 2023

Variety: Sumatra Typica

Original crop of 270 trees + 215 trees, all from 25-35 years old. We purchased a small farm adjacent to Back Bay Estate in 2021. The crop of 215 trees belonged to Esna & Ralen, who were part of the Farm Adoption partnerships prior to Covid 19. Esna still has short term crops on part of the property, but all the arabica is now part of Back Bay Estate.

Leaves from both arabica plots were sent in for analysis and variety identification. While the local name for this arabica is Lasuna, the variety is identified as Sumatra Typica. 


Lisa has applied rejuvenation pruning to this mature crop and also organic input regiment used on all the arabica grown on our farm. Since 2016, the luscious, elongated fruit of this variety has provided a nano lot which is processed as a dry natural. The 2023 vintage of green and roasted beans is for sale on the website shop.

Taste / Terroir: Layering divine sweet berry, cherry notes with with Strawberry Jam & Lavender; silky acidity and syrupy sweet finish that will have you smacking your lips.

How do we protect the environment?

BIODYNAMIC: All Farm waste and Processing waste are turned into compost for crops. All Crops are shade grown with nitrogen fixing trees. All plots are planted with nitrogen fixing ground covers and flowering plants to support insect wildlife and natural pollination. All plots are planted with multiple fruit and berry trees around the perimeters to provide food and shelter for hundreds of birds and attract predatory birds. Rain water is cycled through for multiple farm and processing operations. Reforestation and agroforestry of Siamang Forest to supply additional food and income for people and feed multiple wildlife species within the farm and forest.

ORGANIC: No herbicides; No Pesticides; No chemical Inputs; No Inoculants or additives during processing.

SUSTAINABLE: Renewable resources are used for buildings. Renewable energy is used for home and office. Minimal energy footprint for generators which are only on for processing operations. Locally sourced raw materials reduce transportation costs. Shipping internationally as part of a consolidated container whenever possible to reduce energy use.

Each Purchase of roasted or green beans helps sustain the Siamang Forest through reforestation, agroforestry and wildlife habitat conservation. Thank You!
