Blind Assessment: Tropical fruit (mango, papaya) and sweet aromatic wood in the aroma, with the slightest hint of coconut. In the cup medium to full body, balanced acidity, and big, complex flavors ranging from pungent grapefruit and berry to tropical wood. Sweet, dry cedar tones linger in the finish, with a very mild astringency in the long.
Notes: Blue Batak is a particularly refined version of the traditional style of fruity, earthy Sumatra coffee. JBC Coffee Roasters (formerly Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters) is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.jbccoffeeroasters.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information..
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy contemplating complex and unique flavors in coffee.
