Don Francisco's Coffee
|Toraja (formerly Kalossi) growing region, southwestern Celebes (now Sulawesi), Indonesia
Deep, rich, sweet-toned aroma: aromatic wood, hints of nut and cocoa. Fat and full bodied with a slightly rough mouthfeel. In the cup, more cedar-like wood tones and subtle sweet fruit notes that read as dried cumquat, berry and apricot. A pleasant dryness in the short finish, with a hint of astringency in the long.
The small-holding tribal growers of the Kalossi/Toraja region of the Indonesian island of Celebes/Sulawesi produce coffees that, even more than the coffees of the neighboring island of Sumatra, typically express an earthy, pungent character encouraged by unorthodox fruit removal and drying processes. Don Francisco's is the upscale specialty coffee line of F. Gavina & Sons, the large, family-owned-and-operated roasting company in the Los Angeles area. Don Francisco's is named after Francisco Gavina, the Cuban-born father of the Gavina clan.Visit www.donfranciscos.com or call 800-428-4627 for more information.
