Sweet-toned, grapy wine and plum-like fruit are anchored by a pungent hint of cedar in aroma and cup. Richly tart acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Deeply layered, flavor-saturated finish shows just a hint of bitterness and salt in the long, though sweetness and flavor ultimately prevail.
This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with the wet-processed or "washed" coffees more typical of Panama. From trees of the Typica and Catuai varieties of Arabica. Elida Estate has been owned by the Lamastus family since 1918. Kuma Coffee is a small Seattle, Washington based roaster that believes that coffee fosters relationships. Visit www.kumacoffee.com or call 206-384-6092 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
Fine example of a dried-in-the-fruit coffee, lushly yet freshly fruit-toned.
