Indonesia – Sumatra Mandheling (Espresso Roast)
Description

Tasting Notes – Heavy syrupy coffee, has upfront notes of candied orange and cinnamon. With a gentle herbal finish. Low acidity and heavy bodied.

Roasters thoughts: “Traditionally Sumatran coffees were used in blends to add some extra kick and syrupyness (is that a word?), as Wet Hulling Processing methods have improved every year these coffees are beginning to shine on their own. Very enjoyable espresso!)

 

Areas of Indonesia—including Sumatra, where it is best-known—are famous for this rather specific and flavor-altering processing method, which is vastly different from other commonly used styles. Broadly speaking, the Wet-Hulled process is a result of a combination of environmental conditions, market access, and traditions found in Indonesia which sets these coffees apart from the rest of the world.

The process can be simplified for description, but as with other processing methods, your mileage may vary from region to region or mill to mill. After harvesting, the coffee is often depulped in small machines on-site at a farm or household, and then the depulped seeds are stored in plastic tanks or jute sacks to await delivery to a collection point. (Sometimes cherry is delivered to the mill instead, depending on the producer’s available resources.) While in these containers, the mucilage is available for microorganisms to begin to metabolize the sugars, acids, moisture, and other compounds in the mucilage, which remains clinging to the seeds. The coffee is then delivered at high moisture to a market, collector, or receiving point, where it is purchased and then transported and/or sold to a mill for hulling. At this point, the coffee is typically between 35–50% moisture—quite a bit higher than the 10–12% moisture at which most coffees are hulled. The mucilage and parchment layers are removed simultaneously using specialized machines, and then the coffee is typically laid tarpaulins for drying.

Loved this decadent, buttery coffee. It was our first Indonesian, and safe to say, we will be getting more!
