|Roaster Location:||Thornton, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||Lintong growing region, northern Sumatra, Indonesia.|
|Review Date:||June 2014|
Deep, pungent, complex. Spicy scorched cedar, dark chocolate, brown sugar, faint but distinct hints of grapefruity citrus and sweet herb. Roast-muted acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. A sweet roasty chocolate dominates in the finish.
Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra like this one are admired for their complex fruit, herb and aromatic wood notes that result largely from unorthodox fruit removal and drying practices collectively called wet hulling or giling basah. This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Allegro Coffee, a subsidiary of Whole Foods Market, offers one of the country's largest selections of single-origin coffees. Visit www.allegrocoffee.com or call 800-227-1107 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A darker roast develops the chocolate and pungent grapefruit tendencies of this classic wet-hulled Sumatra.
