A word about Sumatra Mandheling

By October 18, 2006The Coffee Blog

Sumatra Mandheling is one of my absolute favorite coffees. It has unsurpassed body with just the right amount (low) of acidity. It is heavy-bodied without being overbearing. I would (and have) describe this coffee as rich and syrupy.

It is interesting that when I observe this coffee before roasting – the dirtier it looks – I know the better it will taste. Usually a coffee is graded as much on its looks (defects, color etc) as it is its size or its flavor/aroma in the cup – however this coffee should be evaluated heavily by its “cup” quality! The latest shipment was just received from Royal Coffee (the importers from whom we buy). Its bag marks are: 15/1442/03 – and I think this is going to be my favorite! It is so dirty and fabolous in the cup!!

I can’t wait until tomorrow morning – I will be first in line for a cup of “dirty” Sumatra!!!
