Like a song, some coffees soothe. Others stun. This sun-dried lot from the fertile slopes of Mt. Meru is in the latter camp. Its flavor—rich, robust, darkly sweet—is the stuff of epiphanies. Long before it reaches our cups, coffee is a tropical shrub whose seeds are our beloved beans. When the freshly picked, ripe red fruit is allowed to dry in the sun—in this case, for up to three weeks—the result is a coffee bursting with flavor. For the uninitiated and the enthusiast alike, this intoxicating intensity marks an unforgettable experience. Fig, grape, dark chocolate, ripe cherry, raspberry: the nuances you might detect are nearly limitless. Explore. Discover. Enjoy.
