This Sumatran coffee is cleaner tasting and more complex than the Mandheling we normally carry. The KKGO co-op sorted it better to make it taste less earthy.
With this Sumatra, I like to take it even darker than normal. It can really take the heat. We are getting a lot of herbal and savory notes and even floral notes, root beer, sage, and oak. We take it dark anywhere from 50 seconds into the 2nd cracks. It doesn’t taste burnt, it just gets really intense and potent.
