Our Mandheling coffee represents all Arabica coffee in this area and the name derives from the Mandailing people who produce coffee in the Tapanuli region. The members of the Co-op receive training on tree management looking at the application of pesticides, pruning and picking ripe cherries to assure the best quality possible. Within this farmers also receive training on conservation of the natural environment looking at measures to prevent soil degradation, erosion and improving soil health.
Once picked the coffee undergoes a 12-hour fermentation process before then being dried for 2-3 days depending on the weather. Once the coffee has reached the 30 % moisture it is then sent for hulling and then allowed to dry to the regular 11% to prevent so it can be stored without the risk of rotting.
With a medium body, plum, woody and spiced notes, this coffee is just fantastic as an espresso, cold brew or a filter.
Our specialty (single) coffees are roasted from the highest-quality green coffee beans to their greatest flavor potential. All our specialty coffees are free of defects and have a distinctive character in the cup, with a score of 80 or above when graded according to SCAA Standards.
Once the beans are processed and delivered, our master roaster at 36P spends a considerable amount of time to understand the coffee and develop unique roast profiles.
After trying different profiles and cupping we decide on one profile that brings out the best out of that particular bean.
We roast all our specialty coffees in small batches to maintain freshness and monitor quality.
We develop our espresso roast coffee further in the roaster to increase the caramelisation and body, which suits being prepared on an espresso machine to extract delicious elixir.
Our filter roasted coffee has been less developed in order to retain more of the sparkling acidity that a filtered cup of brew desires.
We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re partnering with One Tree Planted/@onetreeplanted to plant a tree for every pack of 36P coffee sold online.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
Australia is currently experiencing one of the largest natural disasters in history. This year's fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable - 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and 24 people have been killed. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia's wildlife - koalas, wombats, and kangaroos to name a few - and their habitat is rapidly declining.
Trees have been chosen that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the region. This includes various types of native trees and companion plants, depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored across Australia.
