Estate. Our search for the perfect Mandehling will one day be made into an epic movie.
Weeks were spent on the road in Northern and Western Sumatra searching for just the right growing conditions for the bean and taste we visualized. Our Estate bean was discovered quite by accident. A small plantation situated high on the slopes of a volcano yielded a bean that displays the fruity and floral qualities that make Mandehling coffees sought after the world over. We have experimented with roasting and have settled on a medium-dark roast- mixing the fruitiness with the smokiness of the roast for a quite special taste and aroma. The acidity in this bean is medium, the body again lighter.
