Just got a sample of Fair mountain coffee's new sumatra, slightly lighter roasted than their last. Pretty tasty S.O. espresso shots. Earthy, thick, all the charms of the Sumatra, but with some interesting fruity high notes.

Worth a try.

many regions in sumatra which produce coffee.. seems like sumatra gayo, if it has bold body and high acidity

Try some espresso blends, They really shine for espresso shots, Since it's blended with complexity with only that brewing method in mind.

 
Only true passion and expertise will make the best coffee.

I love a good espresso blend, but to me it's more exciting trying out different single origin varieties for espresso where you get a strong character of each specific coffee. It's much more hit or miss, but I feel like that's the fun of it. I tend to get bored with a coffee after a week or 2, so mixing it up this way is what keeps my caffeination at its peak.

Honestly a single origin sumatra has never much interested me. I do think that it compliments milk extremely well when blended for espresso
