Lindsey Bolger: "Fantastic! Sweet, floral aroma accented with cinnamon and just a suggestion of earthiness. Cools to a sweet and clean display of balance and harmony" (88). Ken read Lindsey's "earthiness" as a touch of musty ferment, but he nevertheless liked the way the ferment worked in the darkish roast, describing the outcome as "pungent, bittersweet fruit that suggests dark chocolate with a little mild, brandy-like ferment." Like Lindsey, he was impressed with how elegantly the coffee cooled, to a "long, sweet, clean chocolate finish" (90).
Certified organically grown. Based on a reading of the cup, a traditionally processed Sumatra. Although such coffees are technically washed or wet-processed, a series of peculiarities in how they are processed and dried give traditional Sumatras their characteristic low-key richness and idiosyncratic, often unpredictable, flavor notes. Jeremiah's Pick is a San Francisco wholesale roaster with a dark-roast style and elegantly colorful packaging. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Wonderful after dinner coffee, with its complex range of aromatics and sweetly clean, lingering finish.
