Indonesia Mandheling roasted coffee beans

Indonesian Mandheling coffee tastes like dirt (but that's a good thing). Earthy forest floor flavours (not even joking), chocolate, and caramelised sugar flavours.

A favourite.

Indonesia, a land of myriad islands, offers a diverse tapestry of cultures, landscapes, and, notably, coffee varieties. Among these, the Indonesian Mandheling coffee, particularly from the enchanting island of Sumatra, stands out for its exquisite flavor profile and rich heritage. This coffee is not just a beverage; it's a voyage into the heart of Indonesian coffee tradition, offering a unique experience that captivates the palate and the imagination alike.

The Indonesian Mandheling coffee beans are a treasure from Sumatra, an island known for its volcanic soil and tropical climate, which contribute significantly to the distinct characteristics of this coffee. Grown at altitudes ranging between 2,500 and 5,000 feet, these Arabica beans thrive in the highland serenity, enveloped in the mists of the rainforest. The Mandheling coffee is named after the Mandailing people of North Sumatra, embodying a piece of the region's cultural identity in each bean.

The processing

The cultivation and processing of these beans are a testament to the dedication and skill of the local farmers. Hand-picked with utmost care, the beans are then sun-dried on large patios, a traditional method that imbues them with their characteristic earthy and full-bodied flavor. This meticulous process ensures that only the finest beans, with their intact flavors and aromas, make it to the final stage of roasting.

The flavours

Roasted Indonesian Mandheling coffee beans unfurl an array of flavors that are as intriguing as they are delightful. Described by some as having an "earthy" taste, reminiscent of a "forest floor," this description might puzzle some but is indeed a mark of its distinctiveness. The coffee's profile is further enriched with notes of dark chocolate, cedar, and tobacco, creating a complex yet harmonious blend of tastes. The low acidity and smooth, creamy finish make it a sublime choice for any time of the day, offering a lingering satisfaction that invites one to savor each sip.

Indonesian Mandheling coffee's unique flavor profile makes it a versatile choice for various brewing methods. Whether prepared using a pour-over, French press, or drip coffee method, each technique highlights different facets of its rich taste. It's also a popular base for espresso-based drinks, adding depth and complexity to cappuccinos and lattes.

In essence, the Indonesian Mandheling coffee from Dancing Goat Coffee Roasters is not just a product; it's a narrative woven from the lush landscapes of Sumatra, the heritage of the Mandailing people, and the artisanal touch of the coffee growers. It represents a slice of Indonesia's coffee culture, revered for its rich, complex flavors and high quality.

It's also the first coffee we fell in love with, and the first coffee we ever sold!
