Sumatra Mandheling Double Picked
Cupping Notes: Earthy and syrupy aroma. Big body, hints of dark chocolate, and a pleasant lingering finish and low acidity.
Background: Our Sumatra Mandheling Double Picked is produced by the Gayo Megah Berseri Cooperative in the Jagong Jeget district within the Central Aceh region in Northern Sumatra. The co-op is made up of 554 individual farmers, of which nearly half (211) are women. Each farm averages about 2 acres with elevations ranging from 4,400 – 4,900 ft above sea level. When it comes to flavor profile, processing is paramount, and one of the main differences between Sumatra and other origins is just that–—Sumatra (and Sulawesi) growers are the world’s exclusive practitioners of the Semi-Washed / Wet Hulled (or Giling Basah) process. A chief characteristic of the process is the moisture content of the parchment at the point of sale – Washed or Wet Process coffees (which are the most common throughout the world) are pulped, fermented, washed and dried in the parchment until moisture content is reduced to approximately 10-12%
