Sumatra Mandheling ranks in the top tier of distinctive coffees of the world.
Fresh Roasted Each Morning & Shipped in the Afternoon! Clean, dark chocolate, black cherry notes.
It is complex, has weight without heaviness, and a deeply resonate acidity not initially apparent.
It is earthy, tangy, bitter-sweet with an aggressive musty twist.
Great for darker roasts... It makes a deep, savory, satisfying cup.
Just to clarify -- the "GR1 DP" It simply means Grade 1 (highest) and Dry Processed (sun dried with the fruit around the bean which is later removed mechanically). The dry processing imparts a over ripe fruity sweetness to the cup.
The beans are grown at elevations ranging from 3,200 to 6,000 feet. Most fertilization is done with organic matter because of the high cost of imported fertilizers. This grade 1 Sumatra Mandheling is double picked.
Full body. Low Acidity. Long, memorable finish.
Environmental Factors: Shade grown
Flavor Traits: Earth, leather, ripe stone fruit, dark chocolate and deep red wine tones.
Growing Conditions: Shade grown, picked by hand, sun dried
Hardness of the Bean: Hard. Will handle dark roasting well.
Processing: Dry, or Natural.
Sumatra Mandheling ranks in the top tier of distinctive coffees of the world. It is complex, has weight without heaviness, and a deeply resonate acidity not initially apparent. It is earthy, tangy, bitter-sweet with an aggressive musty twist. Great for darker roasts. Don't cull out the odd looking beans--they are normal for dry processing and add to the complexity of the cup. It makes a deep, savory, satisfying cup. As with other dry processed coffees, expect this Mandheling to roast a bit unevenly, but again, ignore the inconsistency to experience the full impact of this outstanding coffee. The color change in the Mandheling is slow during the roast, so there is somewhat of a tendency to roast it a bit darker than perhaps you mean to. Just be aware of it. To allow the deep rich flavor and body to develop, allow the coffee to rest for at least 24 hours after roasting.

I love Sumatra coffee, but I don't love dark roasts. It's just a prostitution of the lovely bean, in my humble opinion. I had collected a lot of coffee that turned out to be dark roasts, so when I saw this I thought I'd give this a shot. The price was right. It came on time, and is very mild. It's got a nutty taste and it's very mild, so it's good morning coffee. You might want to switch to a darker roast. I don't. I don't like charred coffee. This is coffee for those of us who like smooth coffee.
An excellent bean. Dark and oily as it should be. Have tried other famous coffee beaners and I think I like this the best.
Bought green beans. Fresh beans, good packaging, great tasting coffee when I roasted them. Good value. Will order from them again.
