Humboldt Bay Coffee
Organic East Timor
|Roaster Location:||Eureka, California|
|Review Date:||April 2000|
Blind Assessment: Acidy but balanced, softly powerful, saturated by elegantly dry cocoa tones and a touch of deep-toned, winey fruit. The cocoa tones linger exquisitely in the aftertaste.
Notes: Acidy but balanced, softly powerful, saturated by elegantly dry cocoa tones and a touch of deep-toned, winey fruit. Grown by peasant small holders and processed by the wet or washed method at centrally located mills. Certified organically grown. Purchase of coffees like this one assist in rebuilding East Timor, devastated by its recent war of independence from Indonesi
Who Should Drink It: A lovely, versatile coffee with enough acidity to satisfy traditional coffee drinkers but enough low-toned power and complexity to please those who prefer a rounder, fuller cup.
