Bird Rock Coffee Roasters carries only water-processed Decaf, or coffee that has been decaffeinated without the use of chemicals.
This coffee comes from a collaboration of a hundred small holder producers in Lintong, Dolok Sanngul and Onang Ganjang. As with our last coffee from Sumatra, the previous Ulos Batak, this coffee has gone through extra sorting and quality control at origin to insure a consistent cup that represents the very best of what Sumatran coffee can be like.
This lot differs a bit from our last Ulos, perhaps not as brooding but this one is more complex.
In the cup, we have spice like clove and cinnamon, plus fresh tobacco as usual, but added to those notes we have truffle oil, and green apple with a little white pepper.
Scoring amazing 96 on Coffee Review -- one of the highest scores ever for a Sumatran coffee, the coffee landed a perfect 10 on both flavor and aroma.
Here is what Ken Davids had to say about this remarkable coffee:
"Extraordinarily intense and complexly aromatic coffee. Pungent fruit (grapefruit, black currant); moist pipe tobacco and sweet, freshly turned clay; molasses and chocolate fudge. Round, quietly vibrant acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Richly sweet, powerfully flavor-saturated finish." Read More...
