The coffee I had was not the Sumatra Gayoland Organic – it was an Organic Sumatra sample batch. But its characteristics were quite close to this coffee.
I found this coffee at Alterra’s Cafe. I found it to be quite a charming, interesting cup.
By the numbers:
B ody: 6 – Not my usual bold flavors but pleasantly solid and balanced.
Acidity: 3 – Smooth, rounded flavors but enough acidity to bring an interesting, earthy spice to the party.
Roast: 4 – Medium-light roast. Lovely light flavors with pleasant, exciting spice. No sour notes here but a pleasant, warm, inviting roasty flavor that beckons you to fill the cup again.
I found this cup to be exciting, pleasant, spicy, rich, interesting, and all-around good. I highly recommend this coffee.
By the way, it’s one-third of an espresso blend. The other two thirds are Brazil Traditional Dry and Guatemala, which I also enjoy. Brazil Traditional Dry is the featured coffee at Alterra’s cafes this week.
