  • Holiday Blend Dolok Sanggul Vienna M?lange

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2008
Origin: Lintong growing region, North Sumatra Province, Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Rustic ferment notes in the aroma read as aromatic wood, coconut, baking spices, mango. Full, smooth mouthfeel with a range of complex flavors including tropical fruit, smoky bittersweet chocolate and aromatic wood. Dry, sweet finish, with suggestions of grapefruit and cocoa.

Notes: Vienna M?lange refers to a blend of lighter and darker roasted coffees, in this case a single coffee from small land holders in northern Sumatra. Traditional Sumatras like this one benefit from unorthodox fruit-removal and drying procedures that promote the characteristic Sumatra attributes: earth, low-acid fruit, dense mouthfeel. Counter Culture Coffee is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to exceptional coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership.

Who Should Drink It: A hearty holiday blend, refined in its roughness.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
