Sweetly pungent, exotic, complex. Distinct grapefruit and guava-like notes, freshly decomposed leaves, a softening hint of cocoa in aroma and cup. Gently rich, juicy acidity. Light but silky mouthfeel. Flavor persists far into a resonant, crisply drying finish.
Coffees from the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra are admired 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. JBC Coffee Roasters (formerly Johnson Brothers Coffee Roasters) is a distinguished small-batch roasting company. Visit www.jbccoffeeroasters.com or call 608-256-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A Sumatra taken through finishing school: elegant, poised, but with all of the fruit and forest intrigue intact.
