Victrola Coffee Roasters
Sulawesi Toraja Sapan Minanga
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Toraja growing region, southwestern Sulawesi, Indonesia|
|Review Date:||February 2010|
Aromatically intense with layers of sweet-toned earth and aromatic wood with an undercurrent of fruit. In the cup syrupy body and penetrating flavors of cedar, pungent, bittersweet chocolate and, as the cup cools, a heightened fruit sensation. Long, dry finish; the aromatic wood and earth-toned chocolate notes in particular linger.
Coffee from the Toraja region of Sulawesi, once Celebes, typically displays a wild and often earth-toned character, the result of unorthodox methods of fruit removal and drying. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
