Blind Assessment: Tartly sweet, pungent, complex. Halvah-like honey and nut, plum, suggestions of pine and honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Round but vibrant acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Hints of honey, nut and flowers carry into a sweet-toned, balanced finish.
Notes: Toarco (TOraja ARabica COffee) is a coffee project in the famous Sulawesi coffee growing region of Toraja developed and financed by Japan's Key Coffee Company and its Indonesian partners. Toarco coffees are processed by variants of the orthodox wet or washed method, giving them a brighter and cleaner profile than Sulawesi coffees processed by the locally traditional wet-hulling method. Until recently Toarco sold its entire production to the Japanese market, making this coffee rare in the United States. Topéca Coffee is an artisan roaster with three café locations and a roastery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Visit www.topecacoffee.com or call 918-398-8022 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy pungently sweet beverages.
