Do you have a favorite coffee?

Mine is coffee from Indonesia and the surrounding islands.

(Which isn't to say that I give preference to Indonesian coffee at ROASTe.com...like a parent, I love all my children)

The reason I love Indonesian Coffee is its earthiness.  That's the origin character it's known for.  Maybe it's the volcanic soil, the variation between the islands like Bali, Sulawesi and Papua New Guinea, or the altitude changes on the mountaineous islands that make up Indonesia.Indonesian coffee from Bali

But especially in the morning when my taste buds are waking up I want a strong cup of cowboy coffee out of a French Press.  Something that burns the hair on my chest.  That's when I want the earthiness of an Indonesian coffee.

I especially like the Indonesian coffees that are dry processed.  This is when the coffee cherries (fruit) are dried on the ground or on nets with the beans inside.  This adds a wildness to the flavor when you compare it with the wet processed method where the coffee bean is extracted from the cherry right away before drying.

There's a lot of variation between coffees from the different islands like Papua New Guinea, Java, Sulawesi, Timor and Bali.  

We feature a bunch of fabulous Indonesians on our site that I've sampled, including Flat Black's Timor, Paradise Roaster's Sumatra Danau Toba Blend and Chazzano's Papua New Guinea Fair Trade Organic

<br>La Minta Aceh Gold is in the Dantu blend from Paradise - worth trying as a single origin IMHO.

...with lots of diversity in terms of the coffee found there (agreed).

I tried Sumatra coffee once and it was so caramelly sweet as compared to other beans I tried thus far. The coffee was Sumatra Wahana from Redbird coffee. I am not too sure if the 'earthiness' was really the earthiness everyone is referring to. So I have to try more of Indonesia coffee!

These are my favorite coffee bean origin as well. I like it especially a small percentage in an espresso blend, it add a tremendous amount of creamy crema as well!
