    A smooth light roast with lots of natural sweetness. Cherries is a good description of the light fruitiness. Its very easy to drink and went amazing with my August moon cake though normally I like a bit acidity/complexity. In between black tea and chocolate. For a light roast coffee, very full-bodied.

    Cupping Method:Pourover. Angel's Cup Blind Tasting (knew the roaster in this case but not the specific roast)

    Very nice chocolate at first, but a bit flat with not quite enough acidity at the end.

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Indonesia
Known for their earthy, full-bodied, and low-acid characteristics, Indonesian coffees from Sumatra, Sulawesi, and Java are unique due to their wet-hulling processing method. Beans like Mandheling, Lintong, and Toraja showcase the distinct flavors and bold profiles that attract coffee lovers worldwide.
Bean Source Region: Sumatra
Sumatran coffee, hailing from the Sunda Islands of Indonesia, is renowned for its distinct flavor profile and full-bodied richness. These beans are typically processed using a method known as wet-hulling, which imparts a unique earthy, spicy character to the coffee, often with notes of dark chocolate, cedar, and sometimes a hint of ripe fruit. The coffee is marked by its low acidity, which complements the robust flavors and contributes to a smooth, lingering finish. Sumatran coffee, with its bold, complex flavors and pronounced mouthfeel, offers a unique coffee-drinking experience that sets it apart on the global stage.
