Sumatra Reserve Fair-Trade Organic by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2007
Origin: Northern Sumatra, Indonesia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Very rich aroma: tartly sweet, round-toned, with cherry- and orange-toned fruit. In the cup syrupy mouthfeel, sweet, with continued orangy fruit and a hint of moist leaves.

Notes: Certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles, including one of America's largest selections of Fair Trade/Organic coffees.

Who Should Drink It: An impressively balanced version of the classic fruit-and-earth Sumatra cup additionally distinguished by its impeccable environmental and social credentials.
