Sumatra Mandheling Triple Picked Select Tiger

For those who like very, very clean Sumatras. Did I say VERY, VERY clean? A fine example of the cleanest of the clean from the northern part of Sumatra in the Aceh region. It is grown by a cooperative of small farmers that sell their higher quality coffee beans directly to the processing mill in Aceh region. We purchase from the mill with our specifications on defects and bean size. Grade 1 is the highest grade of Sumatra coffee. Coffee is grown between 2,500 and 5,000 feet. Mandheling refers to the local people of Sumatra and not to a specific coffee region.

Cupping Notes: At a lighter roast, nice, earthy aroma and “syrupy” type smell. Creamy, buttery body and “low notes” of peppery flavor. Syrupy mouthfeel, very little acid (when compared to Central American coffees). Good finish throughout as the body of the coffee really lingers in the mouth.
