Both Ken and co-taster Willem Boot remarked on the vanilla- and floral-toned aroma. Once to the cup, however, neither was impressed. For Willem "chocolate-bitter flavor and aftertaste" in the small cup and "spicy and slightly oniony in milk." Ken found the coffee rather lean-bodied and thin with roasty, sharp tones in the small cup, though rounder and fatter in milk. Willem 82, Ken 82.

Who Should Drink It
Those supportive of the struggling small farmers caught in the middle in the revolt-torn province of Aceh, particularly if those concerned buyers enjoy an aromatic, sharply roasty espresso.
