Profile: Deep aroma with a thick body and sweet malty flavor.
Place: West-central Sumatra near the port of Padan-Sumatra, Indonesia.
People: While most coffees are named after the country or growing region where they are farmed and harvested, Mandheling Coffee is named after the Mandheling People, who traditionally farmed and processed these coffee beans.
Process: This coffee is semi-washed - a process in which the outer skin is removed in a fashion similar to the wet process. Once the skin is removed, however, the pulpy mucilage is left to dry on the bean. This process makes for a fruitier taste and stronger, heavier body.
Pairing: Pears, caramel, cashews, cheese Danish, chocolate croissant, butter croissant.

GRIND only as much as you need for one cup or one pot of coffee.
CHOOSE the correct grind. Fine for espresso, medium for automatic drip, coarse for French Press.
MEASURE ground coffee to taste. Start with two level tablespoons of ground coffee per six ounces of cold filtered or bottled water.
STORE in an airtight container to protect the flavor and aroma and ensure rich, fresh tasting coffee. Do not freeze or refrigerate.
