SCA Cup score and notes 84 Herbal, Spicy, Sweet. Moderate body and gentle acidity, punctuated with herbal notes of nutmeg, spice and majoram


Indonesia Mandheling is potent, bittersweet, herbal, and intense ... very intense. If you think a triple pick coffee, a carefully prepared Sumatra, necessarily loses it's Sumatra intensity, then this Lake Toba lot will disprove that notion. This is a pungent, brooding, opaque, full-bore Sumatra. The dry fragrance is intriguingly balanced between sweet and earthy tones, caramel sweetness, pungent notes, and the scent of fresh cut wood at a sawmill. The wet aroma has complex sweetness, bordering on spicy. It has strong chocolate roast tones, with accents of sage and thyme. There's a very intense bittersweetness here too, a bit like butterscotch. I wouldn't call it mossy (a flavour I do not like in Sumatras), but there is something intensely "foresty" about this cup; cedar, pine bark, somewhat resinous, with sweet tobacco and a hint of blackberry. The mouthfeel is juicy. There's a dark herbal note a bit like Riccola drops, sage, thyme. The coffee finishes with an strong, heavy-handed baker's chocolate, laced with tobacco and leather.

Tasting Notes Powerful body, refined acidity, summer fruits, herbal, lime and spice.
