|Lake Tawar basin, Aceh Province, northern Sumatra, Indonesia
Intense, sweetly tart aroma: flowers, cherry, lemon. In the cup the acidity is lyrically sweet, the mouthfeel silky, the flavor vivid with grapefruit, dry berry and floral notes that soften toward a raisiny chocolate as the cup cools. Superb finish: cleanly bright, long, sweet to the far end of sensation.
Coffees are processed using a variety of methods in the Lake Tawar basin in central Aceh Province, near the northwestern tip of the island of Sumatra. This particular Sumatra is tartly and sweetly fruity with a supple body. It is a very elegant coffee, without the earthy notes and rougher, heavier mouthfeel of more traditional Sumatras. 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 www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
