Sumatra Blue Batak Tarbarita Peaberry

"Tarbarita has a complex aroma, with rustic sweetness, chocolate, honey-hickory, and savory herbal notes of lemon basil and a slight melon rind. There's sweet sarsaparilla and root beer scents in the wet aroma, caramel and butterscotch, darker malty scents, and pungent spice. The sweetness reminds me of See our Chicory Offerings for more information.">chicory root and molasses, laced with clove and cinnamon."
