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 that bursts with red fruit and floral flavors, but very low-yielding. The Sudan Rume that is planted in Montes Tatama came from Paul Doyle who is a previous Cup of Excellence winner.
Montes Tatama is much more than a coffee farm. Its a place that pairs a remote region filled with natural beauty and resources to enable some of the most unique coffees trees the opportunity to thrive. Adjoining an 80,000 hectare natural reserve, Montes Tatama has some of the purest air in the world.
Growing Sudan Rume coffee at Montes Tatama does come with its challenges however. Since it is so close to the Pacific Ocean, there is a constant generation of air currents that create a lot of humidity and rain in the area. For producer Juan Carlos Velez, mastering the growing, drying, & processing was the key the harvesting such a beautiful cup of coffee.
