|Rancho Cucamonga, California
Another Sumatra with intrigue, but more murky than mysterious. The aroma is marvelous, alive with vanilla and sweet aromatic wood tones, but the cup settles down into a heavy smokiness unrelieved by lift or sweetness. Hints of dry chocolate turn tobaccoish in the finish.

Who Should Drink It
The wood/smoke tones may interest some. The weight and almost salty dryness might make this coffee a good choice for a French-press, after-dinner accompaniment to rich, sweet desserts.
