Reunion Island Coffee introduces Organic Flores Green Dragon.

For their latest new coffee launch, Reunion Island Coffee sourced beans from the emerging new coffee origin of Flores in Indonesia. With its tropical climate and rich volcanic soil, Flores shares similar growing conditions with its sister islands of Sumatra and Java. While the island itself is still under-developed, the coffee shows remarkable clarity and maturity, the signs of a well-grown crop. Reunion Island's director of coffee development, Adam Pesce, explains why this coffee appealed to him: "It's clean, balanced and sweet, yet still has that distinctive heaviness we've come to expect from Indonesian coffees."

Organic Flores Green Dragon is named after one of the island's most famous inhabitants--the Komodo dragon. By sourcing the coffee from a Rainforest Alliance Certified farm, we are proud to support efforts to maintain a healthy environment for the dragons and other protected species.

Reunion Island is roasting Flores Green Dragon to a medium dark Viennese color to develop its dried fruit and sweet chocolate notes along with a slightly floral aroma.
