Sumatra Organic Mandheling FTO


Starting at $7.25 / lb $6.16 / lb
As low as $4.41 / lb

If you read the other descriptions about Sumatran coffees, they tend to have a wildness to them due to the grading system's quirks in use in Sumatra. Mandehling coffees in general have more of this quality, which can range from wonderful complexity to unpleasant funk in less carefully chosen lots. When I have bought coffees pre-roasted, I avoid Mandehling coffees for fear that the dark roast is covering a bad lot. In home roasting, you can taste the difference, so we choose more carefully.

A medium bodied cup with bright acidity and the typical "clay" earthiness that marks the region. Complexity is refined with notes of orchid and orange and barest grapefruit. Pleasingly light in the mouth but not insubstantial, with very light aftertaste.

Chocolatey with a carmelly texture, heavy fruits, and a sweet honeyness.
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
Sweet and nutty (peanuts) with the signature ashy note of Brazilians, a hint of citrus and a little vanilla surprise on the finish.

As a Sumatra fan, I like even some of the more funky lots, but this one, purchased in November, 2108, is so perfectly balanced it can be enjoyed by all. You know it’s Sumatra, but it just has excellent balance in a medium dark roast, pour over prep or drip.

This was my first bean to roast myself. I have roasted it light medium and dark, and they have all been very good. The dark not as good, and I usually prefer dark. I will be ordering again sometime. Plenty of beans to last me a while. I will also experiment with some other beans.
