The processing of this Kerinci lot creates a truly unique flavor profile, combining notes of Sumatran terroir with the creamy richness of a washed Bourbon. The aroma is deeply sweet, with notes of stewed plums and caramel flan. When brewed, we found notes of cashew and red grape, a creamy body, and a molasses sweetness illuminated by Ruby Red grapefruit acidity. The finish is crisp and cooling, with hints of sage and white pepper.

Imported by Crop to Cup from the highest coffee-growing elevation on Sumatra.
Most Sumatran coffees undergo the wet-hulling process, which gives them their unmistakable flavor profile. Kerinci, from Jambi province in central Sumatra, is a rare find: a fully washed Sumatran coffee.
Lini S795 is a cultivar that is high-yielding, resistant to coffee leaf rust, and known for its balanced cup profile. It's planted widely in India and Indonesia.
