Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1

SKU SUMMAN

Starting at $6.75 / lb
As low as $5.25 / lb

This shade-grown Sumatran is a classic, 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.

This coffee cups vibrant and spicy, a heavy coffee reminiscent of the atmosphere on this tropical paradise. If you're looking for a Sumatran that won't let you down, this is a go-to.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

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.

I had a difficult time getting these beans to roast evenly, however the earth and rose flavors come through clearly.

This was my first time roasting and I bought these beans along with the sample pack. These are great beans. I roast these are am getting better at roasting everyday. I have found that after roasting these and leaving them in a dark place for a couple days they taste better. I also bought the sample pack and am looking forward to trying those beans as well.

I had for years been buying coffee beans from another distributor and now for the past couple years the beans they have sent me were either very low grade grade or a mix. Only because I have been roasting for years can I detect that. Anyway the beans from Coffee Corral have been spot on. After roasting my beans Specially the Sumatran beans I let the rest in a cool mainly dark area for three days minimum then grind and brew. Good beans Coffee Corral. Really appreciate it.

This is a new favorite - I find it shines in both Chemex and French press when roasted just into the second crack. As other reviewers have noted, chocolate notes and low acidity make it one of my "standard" beans to keep around.

I’ve had this as city + and full city + and it’s great at both levels of roast, either as pour over or French press. Full bodied, chocolate, almost sweet, low acidity, no harshness whatsoever. Very little chaff too, but it does tend to stick to the bean. Great coffee.

I can't get enough of these flavorful quality exhilarating Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1 Coffee Beans! My wife and I, are loving the rich quality coffee bean flavor while too, experiencing a feeling of being uplifted, certainly the expected effect of how a real quality coffee bean should perform once consumed into one's body.... Now, I know the truth that is, The Coffee Bean Corral! No more fake ground up or tampered with so-called roasted coffee beans... Thusly, Folgers, Maxwell House, StarBucks, Dunkin Doughnut, or commercial branded coffee beans are not for me! The Coffee Bean Corral, sells real coffee beans! The quality, flavor, and content yet intact; the quality of the coffee beans provide both exhilaration and excellence! The company's service too, was excellent being that my order was both prepared and delivered promptly! I'm delighted regarding the outcome of this purchase and too, will return to further patronize this company's rich tasty coffee beans. Coffee Bean Corral, thanks for delivering a quality product expeditiously!

I have to rate these beans 3-Stars only because I haven't found the right roasting profile. I'm sure if I could get that down they would be fabulous. This particular bean ( for me anyway ) seems to reach 1C very quickly and then takes quite a while to hit 2C and I believe the 'stall' is what is wrecking my roast. The service from the Corral is always excellent, and I will continue to buy beans of various varieties from the Corral.

We had never roasted coffee at home prior to buying your coffee. The first batch we did not roast long enough, but the second batch came out great. Watching the beans brown and the oils come out was almost as fun as the the taste of the 1st cup of rich flavorful coffee. We will surely be a repeT customer.
