Blind Assessment: Deep, complex, sweetly pungent. Red currant, dark chocolate, moist fresh-fallen leaves, maple syrup, star jasmine in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet-savory in structure; plush, buoyant mouthfeel. Flavor resonates long into a richly drying finish.
Notes: 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 particularly refined example of the type, produced in the Lintong region south of Lake Toba, one of the oldest and arguably the most admired of Sumatra growing regions.

The Bottom Line: A fine example of a traditional Sumatra cup: viscous, juicy, aromatically driven by deep, earth-toned fruit and dry chocolate.
