|Review Date:||July 2016|
Immensely spicy, rich. Ripe fig, fresh-cut fir, moist tobacco, cumin, a hint of orange blossom in aroma and cup. Bright, lightly tart acidity; plush, velvety mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates to tobacco and dried fig in a crisply drying finish.
This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of Sumatra coffees for Coffee Review‘s July 2016 tasting report.
A deep-toned, complexly expressive Sumatra in which an unusual but inviting spice note emerges, suggesting cumin in its sweetly drying richness.
