|Northern Sumatra, Indonesia
Moist composting leaves (or maybe moist, composting rose petals) layered with a fermenty, brandyish dark chocolate in this richly pleasing but slightly bitterish traditional Sumatra. Gently tart, floral-toned acidity; silky/syrupy mouthfeel.
This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, 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
The Sumatra earth and fruit character is a bit over the top here but most people who buy Sumatras are looking for energy over elegance anyhow.
