We decided due to the amazing flavor profile and customer enthusiasm to carry our beloved Sumatra year round. This coffee hails from the North Sumatra province and its coffee have been historically referred to as “Mandheling” coffee as opposed to the southern Sumatra coffee which are referred to as “Lintong” coffee.

Sumatra coffees are prized for their bold, full body and spicy herbal flavors. Because of volcanic soil and the unique semi-washed method of processing, the coffees vary greatly from the fully washed coffees from Central America. You would find any bright, lemony notes in this coffee. Instead, this coffee is thick, herbaceous and syrupy. We liked the first arrivals last year so much we had to buy this coffee again!

Fundamental Coffee Company

Country:  USA

The Fundamental team brings over 50 years of coffee experience to this venture.  It’s hard to last that long in any business without developing both a respect for the hard work of others and a point of view that informs how one goes about his or her daily work.  We aren’t shy about our opinions, but nor do we expect everyone to agree with us.  But we do hope you’ll try our coffee and let us know what you think. 

Our logo, the black circle with a never-ending wave pattern, is a stylized representation of the “third harmonic,” a common concept in music.  The first harmonic is the lowest frequency (the fundamental frequency) produced by a specific musical instrument, and since music and coffee go together and inspire us, we thought this was an excellent logo.  (There’s some cool physics at work in all this stuff about frequencies, sinusoids, and Chladni plates, but the Internet is a better source for that than our Web site.)  

You can reach us directly by email.
