Sumatra by Coffee Klatch Roasting Review | CoffeeReview.com
78
Roast: NA Review Date: February 1999
Origin: Sumatra Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Another Sumatra with intrigue, but more murky than mysterious. The aroma is marvelous, alive with vanilla and sweet aromatic wood tones, but the cup settles down into a heavy smokiness unrelieved by lift or sweetness. Hints of dry chocolate turn tobaccoish in the finish.

Notes: Marvelous aroma, alive with vanilla and wood tones, but the cup settles down to a heavy smokiness unrelieved by lift or sweetness. Hints of dry chocolate turn tobaccoish in the finish. The Coffee Klatch is a small roaster and cafe-retailer founded in 1993, with a loyal following in Rancho Cucamonga and other points east of Los Angeles.

Who Should Drink It: The wood/smoke tones may interest some. The weight and almost salty dryness might make this coffee a good choice for a French-press, after-dinner accompaniment to rich, sweet desserts.

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.
