Blind Assessment: Intensely and sweetly roasty. Baker’s chocolate, scorched cedar, hints of apple and grapefruit in aroma and cup. Lightly syrupy, plump mouthfeel. The finish is drying but richly chocolate-toned.
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.” San Francisco Bay is one of five coffee brands produced by the family-owned Rogers Family Company.

Who Should Drink It: A fine dark roast, scorchy but rich and chocolaty.
