  • Sumatra Mandheling

Roast: NA Review Date: December 1999
Origin: Lake Toba area of North Sumatra Province, Sumatra, Indonesia. Mandheling is a tribal name used to describe coffees from that region. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The cup is redolent with the fresh, sweet perfume of clay. Slightly musty tones give a dry, pungent edge to aroma and aftertaste, framing the sweetness in the cup.

Notes: The cup is redolent with the fresh, sweet perfume of clay. Slightly musty tones give a dry, pungent edge to aroma and aftertaste, framing the sweetness in the cup. The oddly seductive taste produced by drying freshly washed coffee directly on earth is attractive to many coffee drinkers, and I want to think that it was similarly enticing to the Europeans who bought and admired the earthy Java coffees of the 18th cent

Who Should Drink It: Cigar smokers, single-malt fanciers, bleu cheese lovers, anyone who values the odd tastes that bring the dark corners of nature to our palates.
