Sumatra Mandheling coffee is produced outside of Padang, which is the west coast coffee district of Sumatra, one of the main islands that make up Indonesia. Many consider the Mandheling coffees to be among the world's finest and most admired, and certainly among the best Sumatran coffees.
You can expect a low-key acidity and a heavy, almost syrupy, body with a concentrated and complex flavor.
I thought more than twice about paying 38.00 for a lb of coffee but I received it today and ground some of the dark roast beans…WOW!!! I consider myself as a self proclaimed coinsurer of fine coffees from all over the world. I have had the best in Italy, Germany, France and even Turkey (not from, but in)…my search has ended…Blue Mountain has blown everything else away hands down!C. Dixon, San Antonio, TX
