This particular Sumatra Mandheling grows on the Kuda Mas Estate in northern Sumatra. Coffees from this region tend to be a bit wild and irregular. To ensure the best quality, we request beans are 'triple-picked' to remove as many defects as possible. The exotic and potentially unruly nature of this bean bursts through when roasted to a dark vienna shade. Sumatra is a pungent, dense, and spicy coffee (think hints of chili) with a bold aroma and rich, syrupy taste. To learn more about this great coffee, check out this review.
