Indonesia Bajawa – Flores
Flores is an island in Indonesia, part of a chain of islands that extends east of Java and Bali. With a recent focus on quality and assistance from international aid groups, Flores is beginning to create a name for itself in specialty coffee circles.
Coffee Review Assessment: Sweetly crisp, unusual and striking flavor and aroma. Pecan, chocolate, black-cherry-like fruit in aroma and cup, moist pipe tobacco in aroma. Quiet but lively acidity; silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates and sweetness persists in a balanced finish.
Who should drink it: Lovers of the more refined style of Sumatras may find this coffee interesting and appealing, as will those who enjoy beverages that combine great natural sweetness with a crisp, dry mouthfeel.
