Blind Assessment: Refined earth tones turn berry- and orange-toned fruit deep and pungent. Richly tart, well-integrated acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The pungent fruit carries into a long, resonant finish.
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 called “wet hulling.” This coffee is a particularly refined example of the type.

Who Should Drink It: Elegant yet uncompromising in its Sumatra-ness, should appeal to lovers of the origin as well as making a good starter Sumatra for those purists resistant to the style.
