Kaffe Magnum Opus
Sumatra – Balige Estate
|Roaster Location:||Millville, New Jersey|
|Coffee Origin:||Lake Toba region, northern Sumatra, Indonesia.|
|Review Date:||December 2003|
Low-key, pungent aroma laced with cocoa and caramel. Sweet in the cup with enveloping bottom notes of overripe fruit and sweet humus. Surprising floral notes in the finish.
Traditionally processed Sumatras like this one, with their low-toned fruit and hints of musty earth, are a favorite origin of many coffee drinkers. Kaffé Magnum Opus is a national wholesaler and Internet seller of quality specialty coffee. Visit
