Blind Assessment: Sweetly savory, deep-toned. Pipe tobacco, sandalwood, rhododendron, tangerine zest, date in aroma and cup. Savory-leaning structure with richly bittersweet acidity; very full, viscous mouthfeel. The crisp, sweet finish centers around notes of earthy pipe tobacco and date.
Notes: 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, branded Tano Batak by the exporters, Olam specialty Coffee and produced in the admired Lintong region south of Lake Toba.

The Bottom Line: A classic Sumatra profile: rich, deep, sweetly savory and big-bodied.
