Long considered the best of the Sumatras. This coffee has a smooth, full bodied buttery characteristic as well as a strong earthy flavor. Grown in the west central Sumatra Lake Toba region, dry processed, this coffee is excellent straight or blended. Mild, clean refined cup….Not! Mandheling is low acid, but intense, pungent, and mildly earthy. We use this bean mainly in our Espressos it serves the aftertaste effect you want from good crema.
