The Boru Batak Sumatra was carefully roasted for you by Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. This Semi-washed, Wet-hulled coffee was grown in the Lintongnihuta region of Sumatra between 1,000 and 1,400 meters above sea level.
The tobacco notes on this one are legitimate. It tasted too much like a cigarette.
Accurate description of tobacco. Very astringent.
Tried with v60, kalita wave, clever, and aeropress. Looking for more light roast vs light-medium. Floral notes
Probably the best espresso I’ve ever had. I love the dark plum and complex acidity. Brewed 18g:40g out over 20-24 secs with a declining profile. Absolutely love this coffee. Although it says it’s a light roast, it certainly doesn’t have a traditional light flavor profile. Wish it was available on a subscription tier on mistobox.
A little funky with the tobacco notes
I think I just need more time with this one. Getting forward salty notes which is unusual for me as I tend to stick to Africans. Definitely get the earthiness and slight smoke. Need to keep playing around to draw out more of the dried fruit notes, but overall a smooth sipper and a unique change of pace from my usual.
Smooth but with an unpleasant aftertaste.
Love this coffee. Very flavorful
Seems a little more roasted than I'd like.
The flavor was a bit weak but did enjoy the sweetness.
One of my favorites...second bag of this. It hits everything unique - tobacco, earthy, with dark ripe fruit. This certainly for me is a fantastic change up from my everyday Ethiopian coffees. If you enjoy bourbon whiskey and a fine cigar and you can pick up nice flavorful notes in them, than this might be a coffee for you, it's real good.
This is fantastic.
Don't usually like Indonesian beans but this is very well done
Not my favorite. Tried several different techniques and grind sizes but I'm failing to get much flavor out of it. Enjoy more fruit and floral notes in my coffee.
