Distinct lemony tones elevate the profile of this roundly satisfying but rather light-bodied Sumatra. The finish is lively, theaftertaste long and clean.
Distinct lemony tones elevate the profile of this roundly satisfying but rather light-bodied Sumatra. The finish is lively, the aftertaste long and clean. Decaffeinated in Germany by the indirect solvent method. The impact of the decaffeination process may have something to do with the atypically--but agreeably--high-toned character of this Sumatra.
Who Should Drink It
I've always considered Sumatra a romantic's coffee owing to its complexity and richness. If so, this richly light Sumatra is for low-key romantics who prefer Isabel Allende to Marquez.
