Sweetly pungent, intense. Molasses, fresh-cut cedar, grapefruit, and a sweet-toned fresh earth note in aroma and cup. Rich, lively acidity; silky mouthfeel. Long, richly flavor-saturated finish.
Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are admired for their complex earth, fruit and aromatic wood notes that result largely from unorthodox fruit removal and drying practices called “wet hulling.” This coffee is a particularly refined example of the type. Located in Everett, Washington, north of Seattle, Velton's Coffee is a quality-focused small-batch wholesale roaster. Visit www.veltonscoffee.com or call 206-250-6130 for more information.
