|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Northern Sumatra, Indonesia|

Blind Assessment: Sweetly round aroma with hints of tropical fruit and wood. Soft acidity, full body, delicate mouthfeel with flavors of sweet grapefruit, cedar, earth and dark chocolate. A mildly astringent roasty pungency emerges in the short finish that softens and sweetens in the long.
Notes: Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are admired for their complex earth, fruit and aromatic wood notes that result largely from unorthodox fruit removal and drying practices. Tully's is a large quality-oriented specialty roasting company and caf? chain based in Seattle. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A softly balanced version of the classic fruit-and-earth Sumatra cup.
