Sumatra Toba

Sumatra Toba

SKU: sumatra-toba batak-no-city

A full 12 oz / 340 gram bag.

The dry fragrance of this coffee has a strong raw honey sweetness in lighter roasts, as well as chocolate, aromatic wood and herbal notes. There's sweet sarsaparilla and root beer scents in the wet aroma, caramel and butterscotch, darker malty scents, and pungent spice. At light roasts the strong, rustic sweetness will remind you of chicory root, molasses and sarsaparilla, laced with clove and cinnamon. There is dark dried fruit, plum, and a bit of rindy grapefruit in the lighter roast brightness. The body is lighter than other Sumatras but still quite syrupy and substantial. Darker roasts produce a dark malty note, as well as caramelized sugars and cocoa with a rustic overlay. The long aftertaste has nice cinnamon-laced black tea notes and hints of aromatic cedar and cinnamon bark.

Makes an outstanding single-origin espresso!
