Richly chocolaty, sweetly earth-toned. Sandalwood, dried black cherry, freesia-like flowers, marjoram, fresh-turned humus in aroma and cup. Balanced, bittersweet structure with resonant, understated acidity; viscous, satiny mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of sandalwood and dried black cherry.
Produced by smallholding farmers from the Andung Sari, Tim-Tim, Bor-Bor, Sigara Utang and P88 varieties of Arabica, and processed by the traditional Indonesian washed and wet-hulled method. Mostra Coffee is a women-, minority-, veteran-, and immigrant-owned micro-roaster based in north county San Diego. For more information, visit www.mostracoffee.com.
A deceptively nuanced, enigmatic Sumatra cup with enticing aromatics that lean toward a sweet earthiness.
