|Est. Price:||$18.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||August 2020|
Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, sweetly herbaceous and earthy. Dried stone fruit medley, petrichor, cocoa powder, pipe tobacco, a hint of eucalyptus in aroma and cup. Sweetly savory structure with wine-toned acidity; very full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Gentle spice- and cocoa-toned finish.
Notes: This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a cupping of coffees roasted by Black-owned coffee companies for Coffee Review’s August 2020 report. Founded by Candy Schibli in 2016, Southeastern Roastery is committed to promoting the cultural exchange, open dialogue, and collective creativity that coffee communion has historically nurtured.

The Bottom Line: A nuanced, multi-layered Sumatra blend that plays sweet-savory and spice-toned off richly earthy: a friendly, accessible, classic Sumatra cup.
