Heavy, earthy, able to take a darker roast

Our CP Select choices are chosen for their high quality as well as consistency in taste from order to order. Sometimes the beans may be slightly different, but the taste remains the same (or as close as we can get it).

In this case, our "match" for the Sumatra CP Select is different enough that we felt it needed to be separated out. Taste wise, if you are looking for the CP Select you'll not be disappointed. However, it's not a Mandheling and is fully washed instead of semi-washed.

Product Description


    It's a heavy bodied coffee that tastes best at a darker roast. Mandhelings come from the northern province of Sumatra, the Aceh region. One of the truly famous coffees of the world. Coffee was brought to Sumatra by Dutch settlers.

    This coffee sometimes looks a bit ugly compared to other specialty grade beans (often grading is an indicator of the political situation of the day) but typically it still tastes great. Remember, it's what's in the cup that counts.

    Where most washed coffees are dried, then hulled (parchment removed), Sumatra coffee is unique in that they are hulled wet. Because they are sun-dried they are also subject to rain as well as intense sun. This is part of what give Sumatra Mandheling it's unique character.  Sumatra coffees when used in blends gives body and 'lower end' taste- but having more of a nice 'earthiness' than other Indonesians.

    If Sumatra Mandheling were a musical instrument it would be like a bass clarinet, not quite as clear-toned as a Celebes Kalossi, but more bassy and rich.
