Roaster Notes: Aceh produces one of the most popular Sumatran coffee in the world. Once the coffee parchment is dried and hulled, the coffee is sent to Medan, North Sumatra for sorting, packing and subsequently exported.
Sumatra coffees are famous for their peculiar flavour profile, low acidity, heavy body and rustic flavours that can often be described as earthy. Much of the flavour comes from the way Sumatra coffee are processed, the wet-hull method. Mandheling coffee is named after the ethnic group from Sumatra.
One unique characteristic of the Sumatra Mandheling is the change in colour as the bean aged. The age of the bean can be identified by its colour, which becomes darker. The flavours become richer and more complex as the coffee ages.
