Sumatra Mandheling G1 Arinagata


We have been looking for a good Sumatra for a long time and when we found this grade 1 with it's exceptional flavour credentials we had to have it. We gave our subscribers early samples of this and featured it at our local farmers market and the response has been terrific. Grade 1 Sumatras are Double-Picked (DP) or Triple-Picked (TP), referring to the number of times the coffee is hand-picked for defects. This extra quality control results in a very consistent cup including only cherries at optimum ripeness.

Full-bodied earthiness with spice and hazelnut with a familiar muscovado sugar aroma.

Organic and fair-traded Catimor and Typica varieties grown in the fertile volcanic soils of Aceh, Takengon. Sumatra Mandheling coffee is grown on the lofty volcanic slopes of Mount Leuser near the port of Padang in the Balak region of west-central Sumatra at 2,500 - 5000 ft.

Giling Basah (wet-hulled), sundried. This is the traditional Sumatran process, involves hulling the parchment off of the bean at roughly 50% moisture content; for comparison, most other processes hull coffee at around 10-12% moisture. This unique Sumatran process results in a trademark flavor profile (low acidity and a richness that lingers on the back of the palate) and gives the green beans a signature dark color. Notes of chocolate are evident in the finish. The word is out -- get it while you still can.
