Organic Flores Komodo Dragon RFA
Origins: Bajawa, Ngada District on Flores (Indonesian Island). Mostly grown on the slopes of the Inerie Volcano. Commonly coffee from Flores will be known as the Komodo Dragon, due to Flores being home to the wild Komodo dragon.
Process: Wet Hulled then sun dried
Roast Level: Dark
Flavors: With this coffee being grown in fertile, volcanic soils and processed by wet hulling, it has low acidity with a smooth, syrupy sweet chocolate cup. Hint of smokiness and floral background notes round out this coffee to be not only be special, but smoother than neighboring Sumatra despite its herbal, spicy qualities.
Certifications: USDA Organic, Rainforest Alliance
Cupping Notes 3/2020: Did a comparison between Komodo Dragon & Sulawesi Toraja on this cupping. You can depict the black pepper spice in the Komodo Dragon coffee in the grounds. In the cup, it is a smooth, but syrupy body with chocolate - no hint of the molasses sweetness you pick up in the Sulawesi.
