Love it or hate it, Indonesians have a very distinctive approach to coffee. This Sulawesi is no exception with the characteristic Indonesian spice ringing loud and clear.
Very clean, sweet cup with clear berry and spice notes.
Very smooth and rich, with chocolate taking center stage blending with a cinnamon/cardamom finish.
Dark chocolate sweetness dominates with notes of spice in the finish.
Unlike other the other Sumatran coffee we have (#3 Gayo Mountains and #17 Mandlheng), Sulawesi is much cleaner, sweeter, and somehow more pronounced. It has a thick body with pleasantly smooth cinnamon/cardamom spices in the finish. The darker we roast it the more chocolate character and the smoother the coffee becomes. However what you gain in chocolaty goodness loses some of the signature spice flavours that make this coffee so special.
Works very well with French Press and other infusion methods. Makes for a mean espresso.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
