Blind Assessment:

Crisp, richly sweet-savory. Maple syrup, gardenia-like flowers, fresh humus, pomegranate, baker’s chocolate in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet in structure, with savory undertones; delicate, silky mouthfeel. The finish is driven by gardenia-like florals and sweet earth tones in the short, baker’s chocolate and tart fruit in the long.


Produced by Lambertus Siba Hurek entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica and processed by the Indonesia wet-hulled method. Flores is an island in Indonesia, part of a chain of islands that extends east of Java and Bali. With a recent focus on quality and assistance from international aid groups, Flores is beginning to create a name for itself in specialty coffee circles. Green Stone Coffee is a woman-owned artisan roastery in Taipei, founded in 2016 and specializing in sourcing distinctive coffees that express their individual terroirs.

The Bottom Line: A crisp Indonesia cup from the emerging Flores Island coffee growing region: delicate, with a throughline of tart fruit and sweet earth.
