These beans were grown and processed near the south end of Sumatra's Lake Toba, which was formed by a massive volcanic eruption. This is good news for us coffee fans, as the thick ash-filled soil is great for sustaining different coffee plants. That means over time, each of the varietals included in this coffee grew and developed their own unique tastes. These beans were wet-hulled, a popular process in Indonesia similar to washed processing that produces a more earthy and complex flavor. With this coffee, that comes through as a robust bell pepper note that pairs with sharp acidity and some fruity sweetness. The flavors play off one another really well, creating a memorable cup that we think you'll love.
