Counter Culture Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Durham, North Carolina|
|Review Date:||April 1999|
Blind Assessment: A clean Indonesia profile, meaning the pungency is soft rather than oppressively hard and the balancing sweetness is substantial and fresh. An ingratiating and straightforward coffee, though short on nuance.
Notes: Grown by small peasant holders, this coffee has a clean Indonesia profile, with soft pungency and a balancing sweetness which is substantial and fresh. Ingratiating and straightforward. Grown by small peasant holders and processed by the wet or washed method at centrally located mills. Certified organically grown.
Who Should Drink It : A solid, no-frills organic Indonesia for solid, no-frills organic coffee drinkers.
