Sumatra Mandheling by Batdorf & Bronson Review | CoffeeReview.com

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

Blind Assessment: A slight pungency immediately melts in cinnamon-tending sweet spice. The solid (though not hard or heavy) profile retains a consistent character from nose through long, resonant aftertaste. The spice simplifies a bit as the cup cools.

Notes: Pungent/sweet Indonesia character combined with a moderately dark roast, melting into cinnamon-tending sweet spice. Processed by traditional Indonesian methods.

Who Should Drink It: The highest-rated traditionally-processed Indonesia in the cupping. Pungent/sweet Indonesia character combined with a moderately dark roast would seem to make this coffee a particularly agreeable choice for afterdinner press-pot brewing.

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.
