    Smooth, chocolaty. Not too earthy like some Sumatrans. Nice that it is organic.

    A chocolatey, lively coffee with some earthiness but not overwhelming. Syrupy and bittersweet as espresso with a pleasant linger. Acidity is intermingled with a rich/bittersweet note but it's not too tart. Definitely some walnut or pecan. Fluffy medium crema.

    I tried V's iced americano and thought it did very well in that format.

    Cupping Method:Made it on my espresso machine at 95C. I'd considering dialing it back to 94C as I might have slightly overextracted but these were solid results.

More Details

Roast Level: Medium
Medium roast coffee balances the beans' natural flavors and the roasting process, providing a well-rounded taste profile. When selecting a medium roast, look for a balance of acidity and sweetness, with caramel, nuts, and chocolate notes and a medium body.
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.
Organic coffee is produced without synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. Instead, organic coffee farmers rely on natural and sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation, composting, and biological pest control. To be labeled as organic, coffee must meet strict regulations and certification criteria set by governing bodies, such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or the European Union (EU). Organic coffee not only supports environmental sustainability but may also offer health benefits, as it contains fewer chemical residues than conventionally grown coffee.
Fair trade
Fair-trade coffee refers to coffee beans that are produced, traded, and sold following a set of ethical and social standards designed to ensure fair treatment of farmers and workers in the coffee industry. Fair Trade organizations work to create a more equitable global trade model by prioritizing the well-being of small-scale coffee producers and farm workers, primarily in developing countries.
