Java Estate Pancour
|Roaster Location:||Addison, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||East Java, Indonesia.|
|Review Date:||April 2007|
Blind Assessment: More Sumatra than Java: pungent, sweet earth notes dominate with distinct chocolate and tomato leanings. The earthy chocolate notes carry into a sweet short finish, slightly astringent long.
Notes: Pancour is one of several large, traditional coffee estates in the mountains of East Java originally founded by the Dutch but now operated by the Indonesian government. Coffeemaria is a roast-to-order Internet coffee retailer offering a wide variety of single-origin coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A sweet-toned version of the traditional earthy Indonesia cup.
