SULAWESI TOARCO JAYA PEDAMARAN FARM FULLY WASHED CROWN JEWEL
This a limited edition coffee. I only bought one 22 pound box. I bought this coffee from Royal Coffee importers it is from of their Crown Jewel collection. I purchased this coffee because it was different than other coffees I've bought and I was curious to see what a high end Sulawesi could taste like. This cost me $7.30 a pound so at $20 for a roasted bag is a steal. Their tasting notes include, lime, molasses, honey, dark chocolate, citric, juicy, buttery.
I definitely got some of that in the cup. I noticed different flavors came out depending on my brewing temperature. I'm also curious to see what happens at a little faster roast time. I had issues with only half my burners turning on during the first minute of the roast which added about a minute and a half to my total roast time. As far as what I tasted to me the lime was more like a sweet pink grapefruit that I noticed when it had cooled down slightly but disappeared as it cooled more. One thing I noticed was the complexity in the flavor that changed as it cooled and with different brew temperatures. I brewed this coffee on my Kalita wave brewer and a hario brewer with a metal filter. Brew temps I tried was 202 Fahrenheit and 208. At lower temp it was more smooth and buttery and at the higher temp it was more juicy and citric.
