Sumatra Arabica Lake Tawar
|Roaster Location:||Lancaster, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Lake Tawar basin, Aceh Province, northern Sumatra, Indonesia|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||November 2007|
Sweet-toned, deep aroma with cedar, flowering grass, earth notes. Full-bodied in the cup, where the earth notes intensify (think moist, freshly fallen leaves) with nuance that suggests butterscotch and perhaps walnut. Rich, simple finish.
A traditional but elegant Sumatra of the type distinguished by full body, low acidity and idiosyncratic flavor notes that appear to result from mild taints - mild ferment and earthy mildew - acquired during unconventional drying procedures. Quite dark-roasted for this origin. Apres is a seller of gourmet teas, coffee and chocolate presented in impressively distinctive packaging at reasonable prices. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Preserves impressive Sumatra character in a very dark-roasted presentation.
