  • Sumatra

Roast: NA Review Date: December 2000
Origin: Northern Sumatra, probably the Mandheling region surrounding Lake Toba. Price: NA
 

Notes: Just enough sweetness and caramel softness survive the dark roast to balance its charred pungency. A hint of something fruity shimmers toward the top of the profile -- I want to call it pineapple. The motto of Silver Canyon Coffee, a small-batch wholesale roaster founded in 1985, is "Pure Quality."

Who Should Drink It: An acid-avoider 's dark roast with a bit more character and substance than many. In other words, something in addition to burned cellulose made it through the roast.

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.
