Balanced, quietly complex traditional Sumatra profile. Gently pungent, sweet-toned in aroma and cup: ripe lemon, dark chocolate, cedar, a hint of earthy fresh-fallen leaves. Round, functional acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Clean, rich finish.
This coffee is Fair Trade Certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Mandheling is a term variously used to describe a growing region surrounding Lake Toba in North Sumatra Province and a traditional type of wet-hulled coffee associated with that region.

Who Should Drink It
A graceful version of the often rough and earthy Sumatra profile. The elements are all here: the moist earthy notes, aromatic wood, malty dark chocolate, butterscotch-like pungency, but in impressive, understated balance.
