Indonesia Sumatra Mandheling
Single Origin: Sumatra Mandheling
Grown on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, Sumatra Mandheling beans are known as much for its smooth, full body as its rich, complex taste. Sumatra Mandheling coffee grows in Padang’s west-central region between 500-1500m.
This coffee is described as earthy and intense with an herbal aroma with just enough acidity to provide a vibrancy. Mandheling coffee often exhibits tones of sweet chocolate and hints of licorice.
We roast this coffee to a rich dark roast bringing out the coffee’s sweet taste as well as its earthy qualities.
