Rich, Flavorful, & Completely Unique - Sumatra Mandheling Coffee

Posted by

The Mandailing people are a traditional cultural group found mainly in the Indonesian province of North Sumatra. Sumatra is part of the Sunda Islands, located in western Indonesia. It is the largest island in Indonesia and the sixth largest in the world covering more than 185,000 square miles. The current population is close to 54 million with its biggest city, Medan, being populated by more than 4.3 million.

Indonesia enjoys an ideal geographical location favorable to a wide variety of animal and plant species. The several mountainous regions spanning across the islands created an especially well-suited climate for the mass growth and production of coffee. As of 2014, Indonesia was the fourth largest coffee producer in the world with an estimated annual production of 540,000 metric tons of coffee. In general, Indonesia’s Arabica coffee beans are well-known for their ideal balance of low acidity and full body.

Sumatra Mandheling Coffee, named after the Mandailing people, is known for its smooth, full body, with a rich and complex taste. It is mostly described as being intense and earthy with an invigorating herbal aroma. Mandheling coffee exhibits delightful tones of licorice and sweet chocolate. So, what makes Sumatra Mandheling coffee stand out from the rest of other coffees? Well, the coffee beans are carefully processed using a traditional method called Giling Basah (also known as wet-hulling). This method provides a coffee bean with a much greater moisture content than other more popularly used methods worldwide. Coffee processed using this technique acquires a unique flavor like no other – earthy and robust, with a spicy and herbal aroma.
