Story of the Bean:
Kerinci Seblat National Park is the largest national park on the island of Sumatra. The park's remarkably sheltered habitat supports more tigers than inhabit all of Nepal, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and China combined. This natural paradise, on the slopes of Indonesia's largest volcano, also produces some of Asia's most highly prized coffee.
This coffee is produced by over 600 farmers who often work less than an acre each. They're dedication to improving quality and progressing the craft of Sumatran coffee brings us this exceptional honey-processed example.
It was far fruitier than I had expected. Good afternoon coffee but a bit too flavorable for my morning cup.

Average Honey Processed Coffee
I bought this product because I am a fan of Honey processed coffee, because it is naturally sweet coffee that you don't really need milk, cream, or sugar to enjoy it. Most of the time it tastes delicious black, but this Honey processed coffee did not taste naturally sweet to me. Could not really taste the Goji Berry or Brown sugar. I have bought better Honey processed coffee from other coffee companies that are much superior. Won't be reordering once I have finished my bag of coffee. I end up drinking this with milk and sugar or just milk now, which I rarely do with Honey processed coffee. The only think I like about this coffee, and why I have a lot of respect for La Colombe is that is coffee comes from Sumatra, which is a coffee region not really known for its Honey processed coffee, which makes this coffee unique. La Colombe is always sourcing coffees from regions that are either dangerous or places you would not expect to find coffee or hidden gem coffees. For example, I was surprised that they were once selling coffee from China. FYI I made this coffee with a Keurig drip coffee machine, which most Americans own in their house. Will try to make it in my old KitchenAid Drip Coffee machine to see if my opinion will change, and I get better flavor.
I absolutely love it! All of the flavors of this coffee compliment each other resulting in an awesome cup of coffee at anytime of day.
