  • Sumatra French Roast

Roast: NA Review Date: August 2001
Origin: Aceh Province, northern Sumatra. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The aggressive roast agreeably dominates the coffee here. A delicate, floral-toned, buoyant sweetness sings over a pungently charred center. The sweetness fades and the charred tones dominate in the finish.

Notes: The aggressive roast agreeably dominates the coffee here. A delicate, floral-toned, buoyant sweetness sings over a pungently charred center. From a cooperative in the troubled Aceh Province near the extreme northern tip of Sumatra. Processed by the traditional Sumatra method, in which the fruit flesh is only partly washed from the coffee before drying. Certified organically grown and Fair-Trad

Who Should Drink It: A well-executed French roast that brings a touch of sweetness and character through the ultimate fires.
