So Is Southeast Asian Catimor Any Good?
Many independent cuppings will prove that, while it can be difficult to get right, Catimor can produce excellent flavour.
From a roaster’s perspective, the final taste can often be crisply acidic with a pleasantly sweet aftertaste, in fact often very close to Bourbon. But with some experimentation, there’s a lot more that can be gleaned from this intriguing and beguiling variety when grown in Southeast Asia: deep and complex flavours of brown sugar, vanilla, strawberry, spice and nectarine in some of our more memorable cuppings.
But don’t just take our word for it – try for yourself!
