Blind Assessment: Spicy, chocolaty. Sandalwood, dark chocolate, pluot, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Intense, richly tart acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The sandalwood and cocoa-like chocolate in particular carry into a deep, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: This coffee was grown by indigenous Batak people, who have been involved in coffee production since the practice was brought to Sumatra by the Dutch in the late 19th century. Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are admired for their complex aromatic wood 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.
