About Sumatran Organic Fair Trade Wilderness Coffee
Our Sumatra Mandheling Fair Trade Organic coffee is very full-bodied, with intense aroma and flavor that reverberates with an earthy, smoky and fruity complexity.
Universally recognized as one of the world’s most sought-after coffees, this Mandheling comes from a region called Gayoland in northwest Sumatra. Named for the people who inhabit the area and nurture this rare coffee, it is grown on very small farms — no more than 3 – 5 acres — under native shade trees in the Gayo Mountains at elevations exceeding 3,800 feet. Each grower processes his own coffee, then sun-dries the beans on handmade drying tables. The beans are then double hand-sorted before being sold to the world’s most discerning coffee buyers.
