Allow me to introduce you to a most genteel, yet quite robust, coffee from Sumatra.
A faint berry aroma first greets you out of the cup. The first sip opens up into a rich, thick, dry, and pleasantly loamy taste experience with a touch of dark chocolate. It ends on a smokey, molasses note that lingers for days.
