Lavishly sweet and deeply pungent aroma. Grapefruit, cherry, moist leaf notes carry from aroma to cup to finish. Richly resonant acidity, dense body and a continued great sweetness and intense pungency in the cup. The finish is very slightly astringent but resonantly flavor saturated.
A traditional Sumatra of the type usually called Mandheling or Lintong from the classic growing regions near Lake Toba. It shares some of the unorthodox character of the regional type: a hint of earth, low-acid fruit, dense mouthfeel. This particular Sumatra adds a powerful sweetness and complexity to that traditional profile, however. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A classic Sumatra, perfect in its earth-inflected imperfection.
