|Mamasa growing region, south-central Sulawesi, Indonesia
Crisp, earthy chocolate (or chocolaty earth) dominates aroma and flavor, complicated by tart passion fruit and hints of vanilla and musk. Rounded, gently vibrant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Rich though drying finish.
This is a traditional wet-hulled Sulawesi coffee from small holding producers in the tribal Mamasa sub district, just west of the more celebrated Toraja region. Ghost Town is a small-batch roaster, wholesaler, equipment supplier and training resource located in Bozeman, Montana that takes great care in responsibly sourcing top-quality specialty coffees.

Who Should Drink It
A classic wet-hulled profile of the kind traditionally associated with Sumatra and Sulawesi. Here the famous Indonesia earth notes are crisp and almost graham-cracker-like, rather than lush and humus-like as in some versions of this type. At any rate, a good choice for those who enjoy exploring some of the engaging variations on the Indonesia earth-toned wet-hulled cup.
