Indonesia, Africa and South America coffee cupping 2/10/10

| February 10, 2010

A full display of exceptional coffees from Indonesia, Africa and South America today at the CAFFE VITA cupping table. Coffees from Java, Flores, Tanzania and Brazil afforded us the opportunity to explore the differences and similarities between these respective origins, generating much discussion amongst cuppers.
The overall favorite today was a coffee from Tanzania. This particular coffee was an eye-opener to many not familiar with coffees produced from this country. A wonderfully aromatic cup with top notes of honey balanced with lovely citrus and herbaceous tones. A moderately acidic cup with nice medium body allowing the citrus flavors to blend harmoniously with the honey and subtle undertones of spice leading in to a sweet, herbaceous finish.
