Paradise Roasters Sumatra Danau Toba – a smooth, sweet and full-bodied coffee with a balanced acidity.
The folks at Roaste.com were kind enough to send us a few samples from Paradise Roasters, one of their favorite roasters.
Paradise Roasters has a remarkable reputation. They are listed in National Geographic’s book, “The 10 Best of Everything” and have been repeatedly praised by Kenneth Davids of CoffeeReview.com.
Sumatra Danau Toba is a delight and rare treat.
We ground the beans, brewed the grinds immediately and let the coffee cool for a few minutes.
What a wonderful coffee. It is very smooth and sweet, but filled with a rich range of undertones. This isn’t a coffee you brew to get a massive caffeine jolt first thing in the morning. It’s a coffee to savor and enjoy. Stop whatever else you are doing, close your eyes and just savor the aroma and taste.
There is a slight acidity there, not sharp, but enough to wake up your whole mouth. There is a sweetness there too. Maybe a touch of citrus.
After adding a touch of cream, we could imagine enjoying this coffee over and over again.
It’s rare to find a smooth and naturally sweet coffee that still delights with such a broad range of subtle aromas and flavors.
