This East African coffee has a smooth and buttery mouthfeel. It has a weighty butterscotch sweetness, and a crisp, peach-like acidity. It is a washed, or wet-processed coffee, which is typically associated with clean, clear flavors. We thought it was amazing alongside plain whole-milk yogurt.
Here is a kitchen-warming coffee; full, round and comforting. The ripe fruit notes balance the complex sweetness. It is light and soft. These are unlikely descriptors for Indonesian coffees, but with it being grown at high altitude and wet-processed (washed), there are flavors and subtleties present here that usually go unnoticed because of the rustic flavors typical to the growing region. A perfect match for a batch of dark-chocolate chip cookies.
We get the best coffees we can, and roast to achieve a balance between the inherent qualities of each bean we buy.
