- Sumatra Mandheling ranks in the top tier of distinctive coffees of the world. Certified organic from country of origin.
- Roast Recommendations: City+ to Full City are incredibly complex and still on the clean side for Sumatra; beyond Full City+ to Vienna builds a matrix of earth-toned chocolate flavors.
- It is complex, has weight without heaviness, and a deeply resonate acidity not initially apparent.
- It is earthy, tangy, bitter-sweet with an aggressive musty twist. Clean, dark chocolate, black cherry notes.
- Great for darker roasts...this Sumatra makes an interesting, and intense espresso shot as well: deep earthy sweetness, viscous body, and strong cocoa finish. It makes a deep, savory, satisfying cup at various personal taste levels!
Just to clarify -- the "GR1 DP" It simply means Grade 1 (highest) and Dry Processed (sun dried with the fruit around the bean which is later removed mechanically). The dry processing imparts a over ripe fruity sweetness to the cup. The beans are grown at elevations ranging from 3,200 to 6,000 feet. Most fertilization is done with organic matter because of the high cost of imported fertilizers. This grade 1 Sumatra Mandheling is double picked. Full body. Low Acidity. Long, memorable finish. Environmental Factors: Shade grown Flavor Traits: Earth, leather, ripe stone fruit, dark chocolate and deep red wine tones. Growing Conditions: Shade grown, picked by hand, sun dried Hardness of the Bean: Hard. Will handle dark roasting well. Processing: Dry, or Natural. Sumatra Mandheling ranks in the top tier of distinctive coffees of the world. It is complex, has weight without heaviness, and a deeply resonate acidity not initially apparent. It is earthy, tangy, bitter-sweet with an aggressive musty twist. Great for darker roasts. Don't cull out the odd looking beans--they are normal for dry processing and add to the complexity of the cup. It makes a deep, savory, satisfying cup. As with other dry processed coffees, expect this Mandheling to roast a bit unevenly, but again, ignore the inconsistency to experience the full impact of this outstanding coffee. The color change in the Mandheling is slow during the roast, so there is somewhat of a tendency to roast it a bit darker than perhaps you mean to. Just be aware of it. To allow the deep rich flavor and body to develop, allow the coffee to rest for at least 24 hours after roasting.

My go too coffee for now. It's very rich and smooth.
I liked this Sumatra better than the last one I got. It has a nice balanced flavor. I roasted to a med-dark and it had a nice full bodied flavor.
I've been a dedicated Rhoads Roast coffee bean customer for a few years now, and in my own opinion only, the freshness, the constant highest quality and along with the Rhoads Roast excellent pricing there is no other place to purchase your coffee bean needs. The Rhoads Roast family also inclues free s/h on all purchases, and there excellent customer service is what seperates them from the other competitors. I have a couple of go to Rhoads Roast people that I reach out to often to get there inside input and advice as to what I'm wanting and what they might suggest and often, I go with there experience and change my mind and always find out that the Rhoads Roast coffee beans are second to none on the coffee bean market. I will be a Rhoads Roast coffee bean customer until the good Lord calls me home. aml phil l
