Blind Assessment: Aromatically intense, richly sweet-savory. Dried plum, baking chocolate, candycap mushroom, lemon-thyme, bergamot in aroma and cup. Deep, umami-rich structure with balanced, vibrant acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of crisp chocolate and lemon thyme.
Notes: Produced in the Aceh Province of Sumatra and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit), a method unusual for this region. Kakalove Cafe is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: An unusual natural-processed Sumatra cup, redolent with stone fruit and baking chocolate with umami underpinning.
