Delicately and sweetly earth- and tobacco-toned. Mango, rich pipe tobacco, caramel, cherry blossom, earth-toned chocolate in aroma and cup. Juicy, rounded acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The resonant finish with all flavor notes intact concludes in a crisply sweet denouement of mango and pipe tobacco.
Produced by the Batak Nauli community of women farmers from trees of the Typica and Sigararutang varieties of Arabica. Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are valued for their complex earth and fruit notes that appear to result largely from unorthodox fruit removal and drying practices called “wet-hulling.” This is a refined example of the type. This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of Sumatra coffees for Coffee Review‘s July 2016 tasting report. Topeca Coffee is an artisan roaster with three café locations and a roastery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Visit www.topecacoffee.com or call 918-398-8022 for more information.
A coffee that crescendos, like a deep breath, into a round, tropical, earthy sweetness.
