|Review Date:||November 2006|
Blind Assessment: Intense, gently pungent aroma with great, low-toned complexity: vanilla, honey, caramel, banana, semi-sweet chocolate. In the cup a heavy bittersweetness and rough mouthfeel initially dominate, but as the cup begins to cool a honeyish sweetness and rich semi-sweet chocolate emerge and persist into the finish.
Notes: The small-holding tribal growers of the Toraja region of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi produce coffees with a deep-toned, often earthy character encouraged by unorthodox fruit removal and drying.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy pungently hearty beverages.
