Cafe Vita Sumatra Gayo River

My coffee tasting series continues with Sumatra Gayo River from Caffe Vita. Long story made short: good stuff!

Roast: Caffe Vita Sumatra Gayo River

Brew Method: French press

Steep Time: Four minutes

Grind: Coarse

As I stated in my coffee tasting post, I’m not really the go to guy for notes, but I can tell you what to pair with things. In this case, I might recommend some kind of dark berry or other fruit. Odd, as my answer to just about every pairing question is “chocolate,” “dark chocolate” or “darker chocolate.” This was a really complex coffee with all kinds of stuff going on, but one thing that I noticed was that it was full bodied without necessarily being full flavored, with a very low acidity. I doubt that I would have enjoyed this coffee nearly as much without putting it through the French press. I probably won’t be changing my morning routine any time soon — drip coffee is just too easy and I’m so not a diva about my coffee — this Sumatra from Caffe Vita has me wanting to switch over to French press in the mornings.
