Grind Level Guide
Select your preferred grind level from the list below.

Tasting Notes: 

Like many Mandheling coffees we have cupped in the past, this coffee has the perfect contrast of a smooth, full body and bold, complex taste. The warm flavors of maple syrup and brown sugar pair perfectly with the sweetness of dates. I discovered a subtle citrus acidity that adds a uniqueness to the coffee, unlike many Sumatran beans we have offered before.


The origin of Mandheling coffee as a geographical area in the highlands of North Sumatra, Bukit Barisan located around Mount Sorik Marapi and Gunung Kulabu, with an altitude of 1,000-1,600 meters above sea level, fertile volcanic soil types, wet climate and close to the equator. Mandheling Coffee (Mandailing) is one of the most famous specialty coffees in the world.
