Sumatra Gayo Mountain
|Roaster Location:||Berkeley, California|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||April 1997|
Dark fruit (prune?) tones complicate a solid, balanced, dark-roast character. Some carbon at the top of the profile, but good Indonesia richness underneath. The carbon dominates in the aftertaste.
Dark fruit tones complicate a solid, balanced, dark-roast character. Gayo Mountain is a large cooperative near the northern tip of Sumatra.
Who Should Drink It
The roastmaster detected peach in the aroma of this coffee. I got prune. Perhaps his peaches are my prunes, which doesn't say much for my outlook on life. Try it yourself.
