Stumptown Coffee Roasters
Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1
|Mandheling growing region, North Sumatra Province, Sumatra, Indonesia
Deeply and opulently sweet, big-bodied, with a bracing, bitter edge of spice, herb and cedar. The cup reveals undercurrents of wine-toned fruit. The short finish is rich, the long leaves us with a slight astringent saltiness.
Mandheling is the traditional market name for coffee grown in the region around Lake Toba in north-central Sumatra. Stumptown Coffee is a small-batch premium roasting company that wholesales its coffees as well as serves them in French press format in its three Portland cafes.
