Blind Assessment: A tactful dark roast develops sweetness and a pungent depth in a subtly complex coffee. Dark chocolate, lemon, cherryish fruit, spicy nut. Rich, roast-rounded acidity, smooth mouthfeel. Clean finishing, though flavor fades rather quickly.
Notes: Arabica coffee was first planted in Java by Dutch colonists in 1696. Blawan is one of several large, traditional coffee estates originally founded by the Dutch but now operated by the Indonesian government in the mountains of East Java. Featured in Mystic Monk’s “Coffee of the Month” program, this sample is limited in availability.

Who Should Drink It: Delicacy and depth in a gentle dark-roasted cup.
