Kalossi, Indonessia tasting notes

This is a relatively famous coffee, which means nothing really to me, since you need to look past the name of the coffee to taste it.

This coffee is from the same country famous for Kopi Luwak, so this is its cheaper cousin ;)

The Beans

A little inconsistent in shape, with a few closer to circles than oval (which is associated with a purer coffees).

On The Nose

A definite hint of vanilla pod and Walnuts, and even though this is nothing to do with the nose, the crema was light

In the Mouth

Mild tones of maple syrup and biscuit with a medium to full body on the tongue

Summary

This is a good enough coffee, not going to be one of my favourites, but that does not mean it will not be popular, especially with those that add milk (either frothed or not) and probably enjoyable for the coffee, milk and sugar crowd, and believe me it is a crowd.

Because of its fame we will probably stock it, but only in limited quantities
