Review of Parisi Coffee Sumatra Mandheling
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 2010
Origin: Mandheling growing region, northern Sumatra, Indonesia. Price: $9.00 / 12 oz.

Blind Assessment: Mild earth-toned aroma with hints of chocolate and soft nut. Full body, creamy mouthfeel and flavors that tend toward an earthy pungency with a pronounced dark chocolate complication. The pungent edge lingers long into the dry finish.

Who Should Drink It: A chocolate-dominated cup with soft earthy nuance. Will likely take well to whiteners and sweeteners.
