Blind Assessment: Deep, rich, sweetly earth-toned. Pipe tobacco, baking chocolate, plum, nougat, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with pert acidity; full, creamy mouthfeel. Pipe tobacco and nougat complicate the chocolaty finish.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from the Ateng, Jember and Garundang varieties of Arabica. Coffees like this one 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, produced in the Lintong region south of Lake Toba, one of the oldest and most admired of Sumatra growing regions.

The Bottom Line: A classic Sumatra cup: earthy-rich, deeply chocolaty, with a floral-toned lift.
