Hi, I slow the Sumatran roast down somewhat between 1st and second crack.  
Through cupping I have found that there is a period of the roast when the 
Sumatran tastes like paper and is slightly sour into second crack.  To get 
past this I have had to roast it darker.  Have you tried another roast yet?  
Maybe a bit darker is your answer?
Take care, Lee

My problem is not with the Sumatra, but with the interrupted (double) roast
method. I will likely give up on it since it seems unpredictable.
Do not lump all Sumatras together, the triple picks are excellent coffees,
zero defects in my beans, they roast evenly, and taste great.

Take care, Lee

There is a Sumatra Iskandar at sweetmarias.com that has that label and 
has
received good reviews lately.  The description there says it is "Triple-
handpicked after drying to remove defects".
