About

Sumatra Mandheling coffee is widely known for possessing a smooth chocolate flavor with earthy undertones. This bold and medium roasted Sumatra coffee is perfect for those who prefer Indonesian coffees with low acidity and full mouthfeel.

Coffees from Sumatra are often noted for a very strong, immediately earthy flavor. The wet hull process undergone by this coffee plays a specific role in developing the earthy, vegetal and sometimes spiced flavors that can be identified in many premium Sumatran coffee beans. This Indonesian coffee undergoes an overnight fermentation, which swells the coffee beans with water. This type of fermentation transforms the unique flavor profile of Sumatran coffee, bringing about the unique characteristics that we've all come to love from this famous coffee region.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Export

Jan - Dec
Farmers pick coffee cherries in Sumatra, Indonesia.

Sumatra

Aceh is the westernmost region of the Indonesian island of Sumatra where coffee farms abound. The combination of high elevation and volcanic soil make for coffees that are rich and lower in acidity with notes of nutty dark chocolate. In the Takengon Highlands is a cooperative that honors Sumatran coffee traditions while moving forward with a focus on female empowerment and success.
