  • La Mattina Sumatra

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

Blind Assessment: Intensely musty, aka "earthy." In the aroma, the musty tones read as a sort of ripe apricot rolled in earth and chocolate, but in the cup the mustiness flattens, simplifies, and dominates before softening slightly in the rather salty finish.

Notes: Pioneer Coffee Roasting, located in the Cascade Mountains in the small historical town of Cle Elum, boasts that it roasts "Where No Bean Has Gone Before." Visit www.pioneercoffeeco.com or call 509-674-4100 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of Islay whiskies and similar earth- and smoke-toned, pungent beverages.

Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
