Packed in foil bags with kraft finish and one-way valve for maximum freshness.Sumatra Mandheling is known for its very heavy, almost syrupy body and its low acidity. This combination makes for a smooth, velvety, yet pronounced cup of coffee. Powerful aroma. Direct and sturdy with nutty flavor. This fair trade organic Sumatra is from the Sara Ate cooperative where coffee comes from small scale producers from villages near Takengon in the well known province of Aceh of northern Sumatra. The cooperative was founded in 2011 and currently has about 515 small coffee producing members. The varieties grown are Lini S-795, Typica and Caturra grown between 1,200 and 1,600 meters in volcanic soil. The typical processing method used is called "Giling Gasah" in the local Bahasa language. This method begins with a locally made de-pulper called a "luwak" that removes the skin from the coffee cherry followed by fermentation for up to a day. The coffee is then washed to remove the rest of the cherry from the coffee bean and dried in parchment until the moisture levels are reduced to 30-35% Cup Characteristics: The carmelization of sugar which occurs as Sumatra is dark-roasted make for an earthy, straightforward brew. Lots of body. Our most popular French roast.
