Introducing Komodo Dragon Coffee, the exclusive coffee for September 2021 to Coffee of the Month Club members.
Let’s be honest here … They don’t name weak coffee after a Komodo dragon. We’re talking about the king of the lizards. The largest reptile in the world. It’s a strong, agile and opportunistic predator.
It has no problem taking on the largest prey. It’s been known to take down a human.
The good news? This coffee isn’t going to bite you.
But it is strong, bold coffee. You won’t forget the experience.
The beans are raised and harvested at an elevation of 1,220 to 1,524 meters on the slopes of the Inerie volcano in the Ngada region of Flores, Indonesia, which is home to its namesake, the Komodo dragon. They come from a group of family-owned farms in the area.
The farmers united and came up with an innovative processing approach using wet-hulling techniques called “Ngura” that are reminiscent of techniques used in Sumatra.
Only the ripest cherries are selected, and then they are hand-sorted multiple times to ensure that the best of the best make it into your roast. The beans are patio and solar dried before exporting.
When you bring the first cup to your lips, be prepared to experience distinct hints of brown sugar, dark chocolate, cedar and vanilla. You’ll note the sweetness and low acidity of the blend, made from varietals including Catimor, Timor Hybrids and Typica.
You may never find yourself staring down a Komodo dragon, but you’re guaranteed to get a rush from Komodo Dragon Coffee. It got its name for a reason, and we can’t wait for you to discover it.
