Sweetly and deeply pungent. Dried pineapple, rice candy, pipe tobacco, cocoa, and a pleasant, inherent (non-roast-associated) smoke suggestion in aroma and cup. Quiet, rounded acidity; lightly syrupy, viscous mouthfeel. The gently drying finish consolidates to faint cocoa and the smoke note, while a hint of spicy-sweet dried pineapple persists into the long.
Produced by small-holding farmers in the Takengon highlands of Aceh Province above Lake Tawar, from the TimTim, Bourbon and Jember (S 795) varieties of Arabica. 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.” This is a particularly refined example of the type. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot coffees and espressos from Hawaii and other premier coffee growing regions. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
A superior variation on the pleasures associated with Sumatra coffees, including an intriguing smoke note enveloped in tropical fruit.
