If you like your roasts dark, this bean is for you. Mandelhing beans coat your senses in a thick layer of spicy black pepper, deep pine forest aromas, sweet chocolate and lingering liquorice. Mandelhing's heavy character doesn't diminish with milk, cream, or oat so feel free to pull a shot and make a rather charismatic cappuccino.
Earthy sugarcane and a very subtle blueberry finish.
Earthy, spice and everything nice with very very low acidity. Reminds us of Xmas.
This coffee has a body that will make you blush. Voluptuous, spicy, with a kick.
If you like your roasts dark, this bean is for you. Mandelhing (a people, not a place) live in a highly humid environment, making it all but impossible to dry coffee cherries thoroughly. As a result, when Mandelhing beans are hulled they still have a massive 50% moisture content as opposed to the standard 10~15%. Because of the high-levels of moisture, Mandelhing coffees are very challenging to roast and the shelf-life is short. But this unique process called Giling Basah creates a coffee with flavor quite unlike anything else.

Roasted light yields an interesting combination of blueberries, sugarcane, grass and dirt. Our roaster loves it but it’s an…. acquired taste? For the brave.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
