Nuanced, layered, richly sweet-savory. Fine musk, wisteria-like flowers, dark chocolate, pipe tobacco, black cherry in aroma and cup. Balanced sweet-tart-savory structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is resonant, flavor-saturated, and impressively long.
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, developed and imported by Olam Specialty Coffee. Founded by roaster Heather Brisson-Lutz in 2018, Origin Coffee Roasters highlights the origin of each carefully selected coffee with a roast profile that befits the specific characteristics of the green.

A classic Sumatra coffee: aromatically seductive, with deep florals and sweet fruit notes, supported by a fresh, foresty earthiness.
