Kevin at Crema Coffee Roasters called me the other day and told me that I just “had to have” some of his latest find: The Sumatra Blue Batak ($15.50 lb). I have never been a fan of Sumatra or any other South East Asia coffees for a few reasons, but Kevin seems to be able to find real jewels and this one qualifies.
It has strong berry notes, black and blue berries. It is smooth with a mild acidity. Nutty aftertaste seems to be the best descriptor. This coffee deserves a look!
