Mount Kilimanjaro, a dormant volcano in northern Tanzania, is the highest peak in Africa at 19,330 feet. Kilimanjaro's lower slopes provide fertile soil to grow Tanzania Peaberry Coffee, and the climate provides excellent conditions for coffee trees to thrive. Grown and harvested on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro near the Kenyan border, this gourmet African coffee displays many of the characteristics of Kenyan coffee, though much lighter in acidity.
Peaberry beans are small, round coffee beans with a cleft in the middle; they have a richer flavor than their oval- shaped counterparts, often rendering a livelier cup with a full body and distinguished aroma. Peaberry coffee is rare; only 10% of all coffee develops with this characteristic. As a result, peaberry coffee beans must be hand-sorted from the rest.

Once lost to the jungles of Sumatra, this gourmet coffee was rediscovered after a dramatic history of hardship. It took almost 100 years for this varietal to be rediscovered, hidden amongst the lush jungle undergrowth in the heart of Sumatra.
Since, then, these Arabica coffee beans have been replanted in the Mandheling Province of West Sumatra, which is now one of the highly recognized gourmet coffee producers in the world.
Sumatra Mandheling coffee has a syrupy body with hints of chocolate and brown sugar. It is well-known for its smooth and full-bodied flavor that is both earthy and complex. Rich in history and rich in flavor, these coffee beans are legendary in the world of Sumatran coffee.

Cupping Notes of bakers chocolate, syrupy, clean - roasted at full medium Location Batak Region of West-Central Sumatra, Aceh Altitude 2,500 - 5,000 ft. Varieties Catimor, Typica Process Giling Basah (wet-hulled) Drying Sun Dried Harvest June - December
Most Sumatran coffees are processed in a unique way. From the point, the coffee is picked and the cherry skin pulped off, the process follows the way it is done for most washed coffees produced around the world.
As with these other washed coffees, fermentation is complete when the fruit surrounding the parchment has dissolved and the fruit-free parchment rinsed off. At this point, the bean within the parchment still has a very high moisture content. In almost all washed coffee origins, before the parchment is hulled, it is dried, either in the sun or in machine dryers. So herein lies the difference; in most places, the bean is dried in the parchment and the parchment is milled off the beans when they are dry not in Sumatra. In Sumatra, the bean is still very wet when the parchment is hulled. The bean comes out of the parchment quite soft, white, and spongy.
This is where the term "Wet Hulled" or "Giling Basah" comes from.
These wet, soft beans are then sun-dried. Typically, the drying conditions in Sumatra include on-and-off sessions of the fierce tropical sun, interrupted regularly by torrential thundershowers. This slow, inconsistent drying is what provides the essence of a Sumatra Mandheling, both in flavor and appearance.
