A rather refined profile, lighter and sweeter than most Sumatras, with clean hints of fruit and flowers under the usual Sumatra pungency. Much more expansively buoyant at the top of the profile than the other Sumatras in the cupping.
This coffee has a rather refined profile, lighter and sweeter than most Sumatras, with clean hints of fruit and flowers under the usual pungency. Expansively buoyant at the top of the profile. Among coffee exporters in Medan, the main coffee port of Sumatra, Japanese Preparation describes a coffee that has undergone a particularly rigorous selection process, the kind demanded by some Japanese buyers.

Who Should Drink It
Reaches for elegance, but falls just a touch short. Still, an excellent Sumatra for filter-drip brewing and drinking in the traditional American style, moderately strong, unsweetened and black.
