Many of the Indonesian islands were formed by volcanoes. They are therefore mountainous and have rich soil that is ideal for growing coffee. Some of the world's famous coffees are grown on the islands of the Malay Archipelago: Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi. Approximately 15% of all the coffee grown in Indonesia is Arabica.
Sumatra Mandheling coffee is grown on volcanic slopes of Mount Leuser near port Padang in the Black region (west-central Sumatra).
I'd taken out 125g for my roasting sample and I'm keeping the rest in the packing in which it had arrived, as I thought it was well-packed.. I'd taken the sample to medium roast over 12 minutes.The beans apparently are of good quality as they are of reasonably-even size (no broken bits) and the roast rather uniform. The brew (espresso extraction) is flavoursome, with fresh woody scent, low acidity and a nutty taste.
After long search for the right coffee for espresso, I think I found the right choice on your website which is Sumatran Lintong. I like your customer service and delivery on time. The price is also fair compared to same item on other sites
