Blind Assessment: Distinct malty earth and cedary dark chocolate character, enlivened by a hint of lemony citrus in both aroma and cup. Rich acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavors carry nicely into the finish, with the lemon hint in particular intensifying.
Notes: Certified organically grown and Fair-Trade certified, meaning this coffee was produced following organic agricultural procedures and purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. True Beans is an artisan small-batch roaster located in the southern California city of Long Beach that emphasizes social responsibility and sells only organic and sustainable coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those enjoying a version, more lemony and bright, of the earth-toned coffees of Sumatra.
