In the Cup: cedar, pipe tobacco, dry spice, red wine, ripe red plum
The Gayo region is one of our favorites here at Groundwork, showcasing the clarity and crisp flavors of Sumatran coffee in lieu of the more earthy, woody qualities generally associated with Indonesian coffees. We noticed that this was an exceptionally clean and aromatic cup during sampling. The aromas of plum and cedar gave way to a smooth acidity and velvety mouth-feel, with notes of an Australian Shiraz, aromatic pipe tobacco, and a hint of clove. There are still some of the traditional qualities of peat moss, but not so much as to be distracting and off-putting. This is a very nice example of Sumatra from the Gayo region, and we are very happy to be adding it to our lineup
