Topeca Coffee Roasters
|Lintong growing region, North Sumatra Province, Indonesia.
Sweetly and delicately pungent. Cedar, almond, peach, a sweet, slightly vegetal floral note, petunia perhaps, in aroma and cup. Richly tart acidity; silky mouthfeel. Crisp, lightly resonant finish.
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 Sumatra growing region. Topéca Coffee is an artisan roaster with three café locations and a roastery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Visit www.topecacoffee.com or call 918-398-8022 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
The refined style of wet-hulled Sumatra character is very lightly and delicately expressed here, in this tartly lively, lighter-roasted rendition.
