WHAT IS A FILTER BLEND?
It is not so easy to get the perfect cup from single origin coffee. That is because each coffee with various origins and varieties has its own character, strengths, and weaknesses. We usually think that only single origin coffee can be a truly exceptional specialty coffee. On the other hand, we often realize that something is missing in a cup of a single origin. We take Ethiopian coffee as an example, it usually gets higher scores for aroma, flavor, and sweetness. However, Ethiopian coffee is also known for its thin body. Therefore, roasters usually blend it with coffee from South America or Indonesia which is known for its full-bodied character. This is one of the reasons that initiates the creation of the filter blend. We think it could be better in quality and taste, more balanced cup, and complete sensory experience.
WHY IS IT CALLED THE FORBIDDEN TREE?
As we know, there are several flowering trees, and all trees that are flowering plants produce fruit. We liken this coffee to the forbidden tree, that is flowering and produces fruit. The effect of its Fruit occurs in all human beings and is the result of man's desire to know more than the unknown. Along with its Flower that gives us fantasies.
This coffee is a blend of Sakicha Red Strawberry, a natural pile-up process from Ethiopia, and experimental honey process coffee from Temanggung, Central Java.

This coffee will complete your experiences in the Forbidden series and keeps your desire to know and want more to meet your coffee fantasies.
