Coffee Bean International
|Roaster Location:||Portland, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Flores, Indonesia.|
|Review Date:||January 2009|
Sweet-toned, crisp aroma with notes of fruit (cherry, apricot?) nut and fir. Medium to full body with a simple yet assertive acidity. In the cup, hints of night flowers and berry-fruit fade to cocoa and honey. Flowers persist into the finish, with a slight nutty astringency developing in the long.
Certified organically grown, this coffee is from Flores, a small Indonesian island located northwest of Timor. With recent focus on quality and assistance from international aid groups, Flores is beginning to create a name for itself in specialty coffee circles. Founded in 1972, Coffee Bean International is a large Portland based specialty coffee wholesale roaster. Visit
