Our Sumatra Aceh Mandheling green coffee beans comes from smallholders in the Aceh province. Growers in this region have an average of 0.5 - 1 hectare dedicated to coffee.
But with favorable climate conditions, rich, fertile soil, and a high altitude, conditions are ideal for growing arabica coffee.
Unroasted coffee from Sumatra is truly differentiated by its unique wet-hulled (giling basah) processing method. The process uses water to remove the cherry’s red pulp and mucilage, while also removing the parchment layer in a “wet huller”. By removing the parchment layer the bean dries faster, which is beneficial in Indonesia’s wet climate. The wet-hulled process gives Sumatra its signature intense earthy flavors of cedar and tobacco, as well as rich, sweet chocolate.
This coffee is roasted to Full City + or darker, giving it a full body and rich chocolatey flavor. Excellent hot and as a cold brew. Sumatra Aceh Mandheling is a classic example of the deep, rustic and sweet character of Indonesian coffee.
