Bridgehead Coffee - Sumatran Dark
The classic and distinguished dark roast with unique depth and flavour. Big and bold with classic earthiness and spice notes
Size - 12 oz (340g) bag
Why its exceptional:
This coffee comes from a very successful cooperative of smallholders with a proven tack record of improving economic opportunities for farmers through very strong quality control and excellent management. The quality in the cup is distinct and flavourful, true to the reputation of Sumatran wet-hulled coffee.
What is tastes like:
Taste: Moderate bitters due to dark roasting this coffee relatively less intensely than our other darks, giving the cup a good amount of bite without it taking centre stage. As this is a dark roast there is very low sweetness and no acidity.
Aromas: Rich baking spices, dark chocolate and earthly loam make for an intense and complex profile.
Body: Full, round and smooth.
