La Mill Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Alhambra, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Sumatra, Indonesia|
|Review Date:||December 2007|
A classic Sumatra balance of sweet fruit and rich earth notes animate aroma and cup. The fruit displays a distinct black-cherry and orange character, particularly in the aroma, though flavor fades rather quickly in the very mildly astringent finish.
Aged coffees from Indonesia like this Sumatra are usually held in special warehouses in Singapore in humid but well-ventilated conditions for two years or more. Aging typically mutes acidity, increases body, and introduces a mild (as here) to intense musty note. La Mill is a resolutely high-end retail and wholesale roaster located in the Los Angeles area.
