This is the Sumatra Mandheling brought to you by Parisi Artisan Coffee. A classic Indonesian flavor profile, with a big body and rustic characteristics, this coffee was sourced from the coffee growing region of Mandheling in Sumatra. This coffee is bold with a mix of earthy and herbal flavors.
More of a medium than I was expecting. But great flavor and profile.
Great taste, one of my favorites
Seth Mills, I do not understand why I have such a problem with this coffee. I brewed two pots trying different grind and strength but it tastes bad. Starbucks Sumatra is on of my favorites either as beans or K cups.
Hope the next selection is better. I can return most of this bag if you wish.
Not a fan. Light roast is more of my profile.
Good brew; no acidity; more body than suggested in the bag blurb. Earthiness does come through and suits our Northeast woodlands taste for coffees.
I've really enjoyed this slightly darker roast. The flavor it releases are different than the lighter roasts I have become accustomed to. I look forward to continue trying medium to darker roasts.
Sumatra Mandheling has long been a favorite of mine, and this bag was an outstanding example. Having some experience with the bean, I had some fun playing with ratios and brew methods. Towards the bottom of the bag, I made a pour-over cup with a rinsed paper filter, 1oz of med-fine ground bean, & 15oz of 205deg water. 90sec bloom, about 5 min total brew time. Yielded probably the best cup of coffee I've ever had. Rich, full, velvety smooth, great acidity, full-bodied earthy bouquet.
my favorite delivery so far. more like this please
Best Sumatra I've had!
Three stars, simply because I'm a dark roast kinda guy. Having said that, if I wanted to keep medium roast on-hand...this would be the one. Smooth and silky, balanced acidity (unlike some medium roasts, here's looking at you ritual), mild but satisfying finish. I usually aeropress, but in my uneducated opinion this one holds up very well via drip. Family recently visited and it was nice not to have to hand-press every cup...drank several pots of this course ground and dripped, and got several compliments as well as enjoying it myself.
The coffee is good (even though it is not of the roast that I had signed up for Medium vs Dark). It is exactly what the bag says and has a really smooth finish.
Great strong coffee
too bold/strong for me
Super rich and almost velvety. Love the earthiness and crema of this brew in a French press.
I wanted to like this more than I did. Tasty enough. Local roaster. But I found myself not finishing the cup, surprisingly.
A little darker than I like.
it's so far the best sumatra i've had. not too much herbal notes and yet very rich in taste.
I liked it a lot, the aroma is fantastic, no bitter aftertaste. Overall great start and I would recommend it. I might prefer a tad darker but that's if I'm trying to be picky .
Bold. Good flavor.
A fine coffee with good body, but a tad bit too earthy for my liking. Thanks!
Too fruity and light in flavor
Seriously the best coffee beans I've brewed. Really smooth taste
It wasn't as sweet as the description on the bag sounded.. But that was a good thing! Very tasty.
Not a huge fan. There was a tobacco and smoky flavor that is not as enjoyable as some Sumatran's I have had. Still excited about the next one though!
It has a big aroma from the bag. The taste is peppery and savory. It's almost like salted peanuts. I'm not a huge fan of this one. I prefer the flavor to be on the sweeter, chocolatey side. The aroma however, is outstanding.
It was less bold and lighter in color than we usually prefer. I liked it, but found some of the almost citrusy notes to be a little strange. My wife didn't like it very much because the flavor might have been too acidic and the after-taste wasn't pleasant.
Sumatras always teeter on the edge between earthy and dirty, and I found this one slightly dirty. In fairness, most are, and this one was relatively clean as far as Sumatra coffees go. It was roasted well. 4 stars among Sumatra coffees, 2 stars among the rest of the world.
Bright, strong flavor with notes of citrus fruit.
Great coffee. First order and very pleased. Flavor as described and aroma very nice. Great intro to single origin.
Very mild (very far from the "bold" as described). Bitter aftertaste. Very disappointed.

Too earthy for us. Prominent dirt flavors.
My husband loves this coffee because it is so different.
Very crisp and bright for an Indonesian bean. I dig it.
Did not enjoy this coffee. I selected dark roast, bold espresso blends and this did not fit that profile. I was disappointed in this selection.
Not too bad. Was not as dark or full of flavor that I was anticipating but I wouldn't mind having another cup!
