Indonesia, Sumatra Mandheling - Single Origin Specialty Coffee
Tastes Like: Plum, woody and spiced notes.
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.
