Light brown foam. An intensely roasted aroma, with a somewhat tobacco, even peaty, tinge. Prevalently bitter at first, with a very subtle acidity, not bright nor tangy. Thick crema but not long lasting. Whisky-like undertones, similar to drinking a coffee “corretto” with a splash of a low-grade alcoholic drink. Woody, spicy and especially tobacco flavors, with a delicate, moderately sweet, acidity make the bulk of the aromatic profile of this capsule. Acidity comes out mostly in the aftertaste, with a hint of sweetness. The capsule is primarily bitter and moderately intense. At lower temperatures the bitterness subsides and makes the Aged Sumatra a well balanced cup of coffee. Mild intensity, velvety body, with a distinct taste profile at times resembling a Cognac or a Whisky, that will be appreciated by lovers of strong flavors.
