Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: June 2013
Origin: Lintong, Sumatra, Indonesia. Price: NT $420/200 grams
Complexly fruit- and cider-toned. Shifting, layered fruit – banana, grape, kiwi and more – in a cidery, brandyish expression rounded and anchored by dark chocolate and spicy pine. Round, softly vibrant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor fades just a bit in an otherwise sweet, deep, long finish.

Roast: Light Review Date: June 2013
Origin: Lintong, Sumatra, Indonesia. Price: $13.50/12 ounces
Pungently sweet, buttery, complex. Richly layered berry-toned fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut in aroma and cup. Round, balanced acidity; deeply syrupy mouthfeel. Resonantly flavor-saturated finish. Our five cups were very slightly uneven, for which we deducted one point, but the general impact of this coffee was superb.

Softly pungent, delicately sweet and complex. Brown sugar, layered hints of sweet chocolate, cinnamon, blackberry, orange and flowers in aroma and cup. Softly tart acidity; rather light, silkily smooth mouthfeel. The delicate flavor notes consolidate but ring gently on in the long finish.

The crisp, understated fermented fruit notes suggest a pungent dry sherry with a backgrounded plum and night-flowers sweetness and a buttery, slightly savory edge. Brisk but juicy acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor fades a bit in a sweet but drying finish.
