Blind Assessment: Elegant, lively notes of moist freshly-fallen leaves, pungent grapefruit and cedar dominate in aroma and cup. Balanced, smoothly bright acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, sweet, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are admired for their complex fruit and aromatic wood notes that result in part from a variation in wet-processing called wet hulling. This is a particularly refined example of the style. Café Excellence is a roaster/retailer located in Audubon, Pennsylvania owned by the Valerio family, whose history in coffee stretches back to 1958. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Smoothly bright, pungently refreshing example of the finest traditional style of Sumatra coffee.
