Allegro Coffee Roasters
Sumatra Gayo Mountain
|Roaster Location:||Boulder, Colorado|
|Review Date:||April 1999|
Blind Assessment: Another juxtaposition of hard-toned pungency and soft sweetness, although here the sweetness blooms with subtle floral notes in finish and aftertaste. Somewhere in the overlap of hardness and sweetness an additional little nuance emerges, a pleasant spicy tickle.
Notes: A certified organic coffee which juxtaposes hard-toned pungency and soft sweetness, with subtle floral notes in finish and aftertaste. Processed by traditional Indonesian methods. Many Sumatras are de-facto organically grown because farmers can't afford chemicals, but this one is a bona-fide certified organic.
Who Should Drink It: Those willing to put up with a little hardness for a cupful of intrigue.
