Still another solid, deep Sumatra, but lacking range or dimension. Clean, one-dimensional, with little resonance in the heart of the coffee or shimmer around the edges. The aromatics seemed a bit tired; perhaps the problem here is a loss of aromatics in shipping.
A solid, deep Sumatra, clean, but one-dimensional with little resonance. Café d'Alma coffees are roasted by New Harmony Coffee Roasters in Philadelphia. This is a traditionally processed Sumatra grade 1 coffee.
Who Should Drink It
Another coffee for those who prefer weight without distraction.
