Sumatra Takengon Mandheling
Sumatra is always a top seller!
Let's get straight to it, shall we?
In the nose, I'm getting a vibrant aroma of sweet, fresh earth. There's an umami that I can't quite place, but I'm sticking with it.
In the body, wow, this is FULL ON dark, dark, chocolate. It's full, smooth, and velvety. Sumatra is stunning coffee.
The finish has just a hint of sweetness. It's like proper British tea with some sugar and heavy cream. and the acidity is LOW, LOW, LOW.
Sumatra is a coffee I suggest stocking up on ASAP because I have a hunch it's going to sell out quickly. Remember, you can also get a five-pound bulk bag and save two bucks per pound. RUN, don't walk, and order yours soon!
