  • Wild Horses Sumatra Decaf

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: January 2005
Origin: Northern provinces of Sumatra, Indonesia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Agreeably dominated by the roast. Deeply and gently charred cedar in aroma and cup, with hints of low-key fruit ? banana or papaya ? and chocolate. The astringency in the finish is nicely wrapped in a rich memory of fruit and chocolate.

Notes: No decaffeination method is indicated, suggesting this Sumatra was decaffeinated by the conventional method, using a solvent that selectively unites with the caffeine before being steamed out of the green, unroasted beans. Any small residues of solvent surviving the steaming presumably are evaporated during roasting. Snowy Mountain Coffee is a small-batch roaster located in the Big Snowy Mountains town of Harlowton, Montana. Visit www.snowymountaincoffee.com or call 406-632-5709 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Caffeine-avoiders and extreme-dark-roast lovers.
