Deeply sweet, richly earth-toned. Pipe tobacco, lime zest, ripe pear, freesia, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned, vibrant acidity; very delicate, silky-smooth mouthfeel. The crisp, flavor-saturated finish leads with notes of pipe tobacco in the short, sweetening toward ripe pear and spice-toned florals in the long.
Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are valued for their complex earth and fruit notes that appear to result largely from unorthodox fruit removal and drying practices called “wet-hulling.” This is a particularly refined example of the type, produced in the Lintong region south of Lake Toba, one of the oldest and arguably the most admired of Sumatra growing regions. Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

Will appeal to those who value the classic Sumatra wet-hulled profile, with sweet fruit and spicy floral notes complicating a throughline of rich pipe tobacco.
