Caffe mocha / hot cocoa lovers look no further...this is your bean! If I ever discover the world is running out of chocolate, this is what I'll stock up on. Taken just shy of second crack, it doesn't get much smoother than this!
Roasted for the first time a coffee from Sumatra and I was positively impressed.
The flagrance was very low almost disappointing, but the espresso came out with an excellent and full berry flavor. The low acidity and the medium body made it perfect for my taste.
Overall review is an outstanding and delicate body with persistent berry notes.
I use a Gene Cafe roaster and I roast to the start of second crack.
It's excellent. Nice bold taste, holds up to milk or on it's own as espresso.
For the first few days after roasting, it actually had a smokey flavor, which I have heard is common for coffee from the Indonesian area. It soured after about seven days, but before that it had a rich, strong flavor.
