This is the eleventh post on the coffees I’m working my way through. Up this time is PT Roaster’s Sumatra - WAHANA ESTATE - Natural.

 

PT’s has some cool looking bags. Valved, but kinda look like a simple brown paper bag. PT’s description is:

”A complex and full coffee that brings to mind deep red wine, with heavy, sweet notes balancing out into a spicy character. In the fragrance and aroma, dark cocoa and black pepper lie heavy over a soft berry or cherry like scent. In the cup, the sweetness opens up into dark cherry, blackberry, and hints of banana. The bakers chocolate deepens and the spice note hints slyly at clove.”

Espresso

  • Bodum burr grinder on finest setting
  • Pre-heated Mypressi Twist V2.

Initially produced a ton of crema (almost like it was carbonated at first). Sweet taste although a bit less syrupy than some that I’ve had. The cocoa and a few fruity undertones. Nice clean finish. Overall, very good.

Aeropress (Mocha)


  • Bodum burr grinder on finest setting
  • 3 scoops Ghirardelli White Chocolate Powder
  • 2% milk

Like the espresso this was sweet as well, but it has a bit more mellow composition. The flavors blend together very well with milk.

Conclusion

I liked this blend a lot. I’ve been a fan of PT’s for a while and decided to order this one since it didn’t have many reviews. I had coffee in hand two days after the roast date, and considering where I live that’s pretty impressive. If you’re looking for a good solid blend that is versatile, I recommend it.

I believe this one's a single-origin, not a blend Blogs provide more space than reviews, so it would be nice to include...more--different brewing methods

I love to hear (especially in the blogs) what other people are drinking and their opinions. It helps me decide if I am going to purchase it (or if enough say they do not like something I know to skip it).

Sounds interesting. Speaking of Sumatra, I'm very tempted by Velton's new Java Kopi Sunda. Agree with you about PT's bags. I'm currently enjoying their B-Ville House Drip, btw. What's your Aeropress recipe? p.s. I think you can stop counting coffee review posts now! ;) Oh, and I assume the reference to the Twist in the Aeropress section is a typo.

... with a particular liking for Sumatra Mandehling and Indonesian coffees, so I'll definitely have to try this. Everyone has a lot of great things to say about PTs, so I'll definitely give them another try with this one even though I was a little underwhelmed by the Southpaw Espresso... possibly because I brewed it in a moka pot (my espresso maker is broke :().

<br>I pulled a shot of peaberry from this region that got a bit darker than I liked that gave up a taste in the shot exactly like this bag's description - never can tell with these beans.

Thanks for the review.

Thanks for the review. Sounds like good one to try and I like their bag as well. I'm a sucker for nice bags.

Well this one might work better in your moka pot than the Southpaw espresso. Also, if you're interested in a cheap(ish) espresso replacement the Mypressi works pretty well.

You are correct it is a typo. I switched the way I write my posts and this is what happens! I'll try to post a detailed Aeropress recipe in a future post.

Yeah, I'd rather read a blog post as well. I like seeing pictures and the formatting is a lot better I think.

Indeed. I've mentioned before that PT's was the first coffee I ever ordered online, so I guess I chose wisely.

You are correct about the origin, I tend to use the word blend automatically it seems. Either way, fixed. These are the only two methods I use, so that's what I stick with. I do have a drip machine, but I hardly ever (never, really) use it.

Sounds like a good coffee, and I have to say that I am really impressed by what I've had from PT's they are a step above the rest.
