Musty tones are softened by sweetness, and read variously as spicy, smoky, and dryly fruity in the cup, then hint at cocoa in the finish.
Musty tones are softened by sweetness, and read variously as spicy, smoky, and dryly fruity in the cup, then hint at cocoa in the finish. From a cooperative in the troubled Aceh Province near the extreme northern tip of Sumatra. Processed by the traditional Sumatra method, in which the fruit flesh is only partly washed from the coffee before drying. Certified organically grown and Fair-Trade.
Who Should Drink It
Those who love their musty Sumatras and want one that pays the hard-working Sumatran farmers a few pennies more for their efforts.
