Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Earthy green pepper indicates the Sumatra origin in the nose with light malt adding a sweet presence. This is a full and round bodied coffee with a smoothness that finishes with herbs, chocolate, leather, and cream-like texture. Overall the acidity is low and primarily comes out as yellow pepper and green herbs. Semisweet chocolate, malt, and caramel become more present as the cup cools, and a pleasant cardamom and leather provide balancing bitterness.
