Are you ready for the best Sumatra you’ve never had? Freshly roasted from True North Coffee Roasters, right here in Seattle, this small-batch Sumatra Takengon Mandheling is a fudgy, complex take on an Indonesian coffee classic. This cup brings all the earthy chocolate we love from Sumatran roasts, with a touch of mellow blackberry that sits atop a caramelized, velvety body of rich dark chocolate and almond marzipan. Don’t be fooled, there’s some nice juicy fruit here, but the acidity stays nice and low. The finish dives into a nutty, spicy finish that feels like a combination of bold british tea and a cinnamon scone. Spicy, sweet, rich, herbal, and utterly delicious, this Sumatran cup is a real sip of Indonesian elegance.

A very rich dark roast for a Sunatra. We actually found we enjoyed it more as an iced coffee than hot but even hot it was a good experience
Despite the beautiful description of this coffee, its still a Sumatra with all the deep, roasted, might I say charred? front flavor of Indonesian beans. If you are a fan of Sumatras, then you should definitely try this because it is one of the more interesting and balanced cups I've had. But, if you're like me and need more complexity, I wouldn't recommend it.
I brewed these beans with an espresso machine and with my chemex. I very much was pleased with how smooth they came through using the espresso machine. The beans also yielded a balanced cup with a clean finish using the chemex.
