Look for: syrupy body, notes of jasmine, dried fruit, toasted almonds and petrichor.
This coffee was sourced through East Edge Coffee, a new exporter with the goal of bringing interesting coffees from Indonesia to the world. East Edge believes that Indonesian coffees--particularly Sumatran coffees have been type-cast in our industry a certain way. And for lots of folks it's a good way! But it's very specific. When people think of "Sumatra", they tend to think of a heavy coffee, lots of bass, with earthy, herbal tasting notes like peat moss & cedar & marijuana.
East Edge is on a mission to find delicious coffees from Indonesia that don't always fit that mold. This coffee is a great example of that. It's a wet-hulled coffee meaning that it was processed to reduce the coffee's moisture content as quickly as possible. This is sometimes a necessary as green coffee needs to be brought to 11% moisture in order to safely make the long journey to us.
