Blind Assessment: Sweetly and richly pungent: cedar, grapefruit, freshly turned earth in aroma and cup. Rich, roundly bright acidity; medium body; silky mouthfeel. The citrus turns orangy in a fine, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Classic “wet-hulled”-style Sumatra from the Lake Tawar basin at the northwestern tip of the island. 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
Who Should Drink It: Superbly elegant interpretation of the Sumatra earth and fruit profile.
