Blind Assessment: In the nose sweet pine-toned aromatic wood, with smoky, toasty and earthy tones. Big, silky-textured body with somewhat sweet, if soft, acidity. In the cup, powerfully musty notes read as pleasant cedar and walnut. The long, dry finish lingers with hints of cocoa and continued aromatic wood.
Notes: Located in Everett, Washington, north of Seattle, Velton's Coffee is a quality-focused small-batch wholesale roaster. Visit www.veltonscoffee.com or call 206-250-6130 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : Fans of traditional coffees from Indonesia who are willing to experiment with an aromatic wood-toned, smooth and full-bodied blend.
