Blind Assessment: Complex, brandy-like fruit. Distinct lychee and ripe grape notes in aroma and cup, rounded with dark chocolate and sandalwood. Roundly bright acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is flavor-saturated and sweet, with a faint clove-like crispness.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Rainforest Alliance Certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. The exotic and colorful island of Bali produces a small volume of coffee in the interior highlands. This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees.

Who Should Drink It: An aficionado’s dried-in-the-fruit coffee with the brandy-like appeal of the type complicated by hints of clove and sandalwood.
