  • Sumatra Decaf

Roast: NA Review Date: March 2000
Origin: Sumatra, probably one of the Mandheling growing regions near Lake Toba. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: Thrillingly sweet and buoyant when hot, with a hint of dry fruit modulating to chocolate. Light bodied but deeply dimensioned. A subliminal whiff of flowers teases in the aftertaste.

Notes: Thrillingly sweet and buoyant when hot, with a hint of dry fruit modulating to chocolate. Decaffeinated by the European process using the solvent methylene chloride. One of award-winning Caffe Appassionato 's mottoes (appearing beneath a portrait of Beethoven) is "A Maestro 's Passion."

Who Should Drink It: A clean, levitating Sumatra without the usual musty, earthy, gritty baggage. More Mozart than Beethoven, this is an optimistic Sumatra for sunny mornings and drip brewing.
