Sumatra is the second-largest island in the Republic of Indonesia. This Sumatra Mandheling is grown on the lofty, volcanic slopes of Mount Leuser, near the port of Padang in west-central Sumatra.
Programs focusing on women's empowerment are also prevalent, such as supporting women during their pregnancy by purchasing necessary medical tools. They have also made an effort to hire women to do manufacturing work in processing facilities as well as training in financial management.
The natural drying method used in its production results in a very full body with a concentrated flavor, garnished with herbal nuances and a spicy finish. The coffee has a low acidity and a richness that lingers on the back corners on your tongue.
Giling Basah, the traditional Sumatran method of processing coffee, involves hulling the parchment off the bean at roughly 50 percent moisture content, versus at the 10 to 12 percent moisture that's common elsewhere. This unusual practice results in a trademark flavor profile—a low acidity and a richness that lingers on the back of the palate—and gives the beans a signature dark colour.
