Sigumpar Village - Indonesia
This coffee comes from a farming village near Lake Toba, the largest volcanic crater in the world. Interestingly, the coffees grown on this island vary quite a bit in taste. The volcanic crater affects the climate and growing conditions and as a result, a coffee from one side of the island can taste wholly different from one grown on the opposite side, across the crater. Grown at 1400-1500 MSL with unique tastes of licorice, herbal aromas, and cacao. This coffee smells potent, which we think is a good thing. The espresso we pulled from this coffee was intense; intensely bittersweet with a finishing note of palm sugar, a defining flavor of Indonesian coffees.
