City roasts show anchoring undercurrent of light brown sugar sweetness, and intimation of dehydrated banana, a rustic flavor brown rice syrup, and mild yet present orange rind acidity. Full City is more bittersweet. City to Full City.

Poko Ranaka is a fairly small lot of coffee blended from 8 different families in the village of Tangkul, East Manggarai District. Altitude of these farms varies, from a low point of around 1400 meters above sea level, on up to about 1800 meters. The main cultivars grown in the region are S-795, Typica, and Yellow Caturra. Coffee is processed at home using hand crank depulpers, fermenting the coffee in buckets, and then either drying on racks or in makeshift drying sheds. This lot is part of an effort between ourselves and an intermediary we're working with in the region to identify, separate, and evaluate coffees from farms from the higher elevations. This area of Tangkul is near the volcano Ranaka, which is where this small producer blend gets it's name. The area is rife with nutrient rich soils, and coffee farmers are able to grow using fully organic farm practices, though they are not certified at this time.
