Roast (Agtron): (63/84) city
Origin: Northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
OVERALL RATING: 93
Notes: This coffee is Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Sumatras like this one achieve their unusual cup character mainly through unorthodox processing and drying methods unique to Indonesia. This is a particularly (and skillfully) light-roasted presentation of this famous coffee type. Based in Hong Kong, Fresh is a micro roaster committed to offering artisanal. small batch coffees freshly roasted to your order. vist hkcoffee.com or www.fairtaste.com.hk for more information.
Blind assessment: Tart but deeply sweet: honey, fir, lightly roasted almond, sour cherry, hints of freshly turned earth. Richly tart acidity; smoothly syrupy mouthfeel. Round, deep finish resonates with the lemony cherry note in particular.
Who should drink it: Not a purist’s coffee, but a very pure example of its type, in which unorthodox tart fruit and earth notes animate a coffee with a profound sweetness and balance.
Coffee beans or ground coffee: Whole coffee beans
