Limited Quantity Single Batch Seasonal Release
Like the Komodo Dragons that occupy the island where this coffee is grown, this organic single origin from Flores, Indonesia is very rare and very memorable. Our Bajawa Ngura has exotic & earthy characteristics with a big, bold body and low acidity. This coffee has a long-lasting finish, similar to bittersweet cocoa. We roast this coffee lightly because the bean itself has such big flavor. If you enjoy a complex cup of coffee, this is the one for you. Every one experiences coffee differently, but we taste notes of brown sugar, molasses and cedar.
