Description: The flow of coffee is very unique in Sumatra as compared to other origins and in the region where we produce this coffee, women are the backbone of the coffee business and make all of the quality and buying decisions. Boru means the link to the maternal line of the family and we thought that we should pay homage to them with naming this coffee Boru Batak. This coffee comes from the growing region of Lintongnihuta in Northern Sumatra near the shores of Lake Toba. It is a completely sun-dried and triple-picked Supergrade type coffee and we are only able to produce about 200 bags total annually. It is exceptionally clean with a massive syrupy body, fresh acidity, and flavors of cedar, leather, and a distinct essence of butterscotch.

These beans need to be roasted 4-5 minutes past the second crack to get much flavor out of them. I did like the yeasty vibe but they are roasting as dark as they usually do.

Thumbs up

Smoky and syrupy Full City+ flavor. Great for espresso.

One of our favorites

We finally got to roasting our newest coffee. We tried it a couple of days after roasting, and found it very pleasant. We let it sit another week, and when we tried it again found that it is now all of our favorite. It is not very acidic, and leaves a very nice taste long after sipping. It is further enhanced when we add real dairy cream to it. Sweeter is not necessary at all, which my wife and daughter usually add to most coffee. We love it.

Smooth and Chocolatey

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!

Berry flavor

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.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
