This Organic Fair Trade certified Sumatra Aceh Ketiara is a full bodied masterpiece! It has notes of cherry, cedar and bakers chocolate. When brewed with moderate to low strength, a slight floral note can be detected as it is roasted to a lesser degree than most roasters choose with their Sumatras. Best served as a French press or espresso, but it shines as well s a pour over or in a regular automatic coffee maker.
