The Adsenia lots from Ketiara pass their strictest QC parameters, and tend to be the best of the best. If you go to cup at Ketiara’s lab in Takengon, you will certainly be presented with one of these coffees. To me, this coffee has landed just the way I tasted it at origin: fresh, sweet, gracefully herbal, and gently tropical. There is rarely a better example of delicious wet-hulled coffee, in my not-so-humble opinion. Ketiara is the leader of the pack!
