Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1


Starting at $6.75 / lb
As low as $5.75 / lb

This shade-grown Sumatran is a classic. It is so steeped in the history of this Indonesian island that the name itself is not of a region, but rather the result of a language barrier. Vibrant and spicy, this is a heavy coffee reminiscent of the atmosphere on this tropical paradise.

Sweet and nutty (peanuts) with the signature ashy note of Brazilians, a hint of citrus and a little vanilla surprise on the finish.
Not too heavy or spicy and with a touch of wilderness. A satisfying, full-bodied cup.
Brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long, satisfying finish

Though I'm new to home-roasting, Mandehling has always been one of my favorite full-bodied coffees. The deep earthy flavor with slightly brighter fruit tones is excellent for a relaxing afternoon cup. I've found it best to "cure" this one for 2-3 days after roasting; I'm by no means an expert, but I feel more of the bright and flavorful overtones come through that way for a more balanced taste.
