Description: It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Sumatran coffee here at Bodhi. We bring in coffees from all over Sumatra year after year, but this is our first coffee from the Arul Badak region of Aceh. Processed traditionally as a wet-hulled coffee, means that this lot had the cherry skin removed and was sun-dried to 25-35% moisture content before hulling. During the hulling, the coffee’s parchment is removed from the seed, and then the lot finishes sun-drying.
This lot is a shining example of the Sumatran cup profile, and then some. While hot the flavors are punchy with pops of fruit and earthy spices, and cools with that fruit coming out even more and the spiciness becoming almost like the spice of a Dr. Pepper™. Notes that we got across the board were Dried Peach, and fresh Raspberry, with sweetness of Brown Sugar and the spice of Nutmeg. We’re really happy to have come across this coffee, and we hope you get a chance to enjoy it before we drink it all.
