  • Sumatra Mandheling

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: April 1999
Origin: Sumatra. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A hard, baggy pungency. A sweet, soft (perhaps floral) sweetness. When the two work together we get an agreeable sweet/sharp taste that suggests chocolate. The sweet subtext prevails pleasantly in the aftertaste.

Notes: New World Coffee is associated with Willoughby's, a quality roaster since 1985. This coffee has a hard, baggy pungency with soft, floral sweetness that work together to suggest chocolate. Processed by traditional Indonesian methods. New World Coffee is a label associated with Willoughby's, a quality-oriented roaster and retailer established in 1985.

Who Should Drink It: Another hardish-Sumatra-lover's hardish Sumatra. Brew it strong and drink it with milk and sugar.


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.
