Sumatra Mandheling - Takengon

$19.00



Sumatra Mandheling coffees are famous for their peculiar flavor profile, low acidity, thick body, and rustic flavors that can often be described as earthy. Much of the flavor comes from the way Sumatra coffees are processed, the wet-hull method. The coffee is from family-owned farms in the highland territory, surrounding Lake Laut Tawar and the central city of Takengon in the Aceh province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia.

The city of Takengon, is considered to be the epicenter of one of the world’s most unique coffee terroirs. The province of Aceh, is a varied territory with high elevation grasslands, mountain ranges, and the massive Lake Toba, one of the island’s most famous coffee producing areas.
